    Fair to help students in higher education journey

    Findlay education services agency is hosting their first post-pandemic in-person International Study Fair on Wednesday at The Centrepoint Hotel in Gadong to help students consider their higher education options.

    Representatives from institutions across the world will be present to chat with students and provide information to guide them with their future study plans. The International Study Fair will present a variety of options for higher education, featuring a wide range of entry requirements and destinations in the United Kingdom, Australia, Malaysia, Canada, the United States and in Europe.

    Broadening these options will be pathway providers offering alternative entry to higher education with studies at Foundation level or with parallel first-year degree equivalents for students who have missed entry deadlines or requirements.

    These on-campus programmes ease the students transition into university life, without extending the duration of their studies.

    Findlay consultants will be representing their partnered universities and colleges who are unable to participate in the fair.

    They will also feature employability workshops and the Morrisby psychometric career profiling assessments for students who are unsure about which career and educational paths to pursue.

    The public and private sector will also be supporting the fair. Ministry of Education officers from the Brunei Darussalam National Accreditation Council and the Department of Scholarship Management will be available for related enquiries.

    Information from a local bank on student bank loans and on the IELTS English language tests will also be available at the fair.

    Managing Director Sunita Martin said, “Now that travel restrictions have eased, it is a pleasure to welcome university representatives back to Brunei.

    “During the pandemic, we had to move these interactions online and whilst the events were well attended, there is definitely a buzz with in-person Study Fair events that cannot be replicated in online events.

    “In recent weeks we have already seen visits by representatives from several universities such as Taylors, Birmingham, St Andrews, Dundee and Queen’s Belfast, all of whom saw high levels of interest from schools and prospective students.”

    She added, “We are proud of the unique service we provide which is comprehensive, personalised and long-term.

    “We start by assessing the student’s academic background, interests and aspirations and match them with appropriate study destinations.

    “We then assist them with applications and visas, pre-departure information sessions and stay in touch throughout their studies.

    “When they graduate, they have free access to our employability workshops such as CV writing, presentation and interview skills.”
