StudyGlobal Exhibition to help enhance students’ career prospects

The StudyGlobal Exhibition to be held on November 6 at the Radisson Hotel, is the perfect platform to meet representatives from leading education institutions from Australia, Malaysia and the United Kingdom (UK).

School leavers and graduates can gain insights into specific professions and study pathways in response to the skills demands of employers in industry, business, health and government.

Participating universities offer science, engineering, medicine, health, business, finance, IT, law, art and design as well as interdisciplinary programmes such as geomatics, construction, design and technology, as well as creative industries.

The exhibition will facilitate students, graduates and in-service personnel to have personal interactions with staff from higher education institutions from different countries under one roof and obtain first hand information and be able to make informed decision about the course and the university and align the options to their personal interests and qualifications.

“Students tend to focus on course options and universities rather than the long term career opportunities that the degree could lead to,” said Siti Maizura binti Abu Bakar from HRDS, the organisers of the exhibition.

“Students should try to think outside the box and think of careers that are unique so that they are not competing with others – for example there are plenty of engineers but there is real shortage of surveyors, digital health technologists, agriculture engineers, and food technologists”.

All participating universities are accredited by Brunei Darussalam National Accreditation Council. The exhibition will be open to the public from 2pm-7pm.
