Meet students at international schools in Hong Kong and the South China region during this specially curated CIS University Exploration Day.

Three key things set these CIS events apart from other virtual opportunities for universities to meet students. They all stem from our close working relationships with our school member counsellors and their leaders:

  1. They work with us to ensure the events are scheduled into the students' day-time academic agendas to prioritise the events for student participation
  2. School leaders are kept in the loop and support the connections we are making for their students with universities worldwide
  3. The intimate size of the events lead to more targeted and meaningful discussions for students and universities alike.

Students have been inundated with so much information this year that oftentimes it's challenging to sift through all of the offerings. Having one set time for a fair with a variety of options during the school day gave them an opportunity to focus and do research.

When working with the host school to organize these events, we are careful to ensure that the ratio of students attending supports the number of universities attending to create quality interactions, and each event won't exceed 80 universities.
