An excellent opportunity to showcase your institution’s creative programmes to prospective students at CIS member schools worldwide

Your knowledge and expertise will be invaluable to the student experience as you support their research of creative study opportunities and the associated post-graduate careers awaiting them in the following disciplines.

Advertising, animation, video graphics and special effects, architecture, art history, fine art, ceramics, dance, drawing, fashion, film/radio/tv/video production, illustration, industrial/product/interior/web/graphic/game/user experience design, music, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, theater/drama.

Via presentations and panel discussions, you’ll help students understand how to put an application together, your requirements for portfolios and auditions, and much more.

In a change to our usual scheduling, this event takes place on a Saturday to accommodate students at CIS schools worldwide.

In addition, we’re inviting students at IB World Schools via our Supporting Member partnership with the IB.

Alumni keynote speakers will set the scene for this event and get students thinking about what how to learn from you. This is a wonderful way to illustrate the type of success that comes from creative career pathways.

We keep our University Exploration Days small to assist you in having more targeted and meaningful discussions with students. 

In a new world of multiple virtual events, the CIS exploration days are easily one of the best organised, well attended and highest quality fairs you can be involved in.
