“First of all, I want to say thank you for arranging this useful and organized information session for International students. I enjoyed it throughout.”
South Australian Government Schools recently held a tertiary information session specifically for international High School Graduate Program students. Students received valuable information on:
- new courses and programs being offered
- university pathways
- international student enrolments
- services, support and facilities offered by the institutions
“This is the first International information session I attended that involves so many secondary schools as well as tertiary institutions, which is unprecedented and wonderful! It assembled most of the tertiary institutions and delivered us compacted information, which enables us to compare them better. The session is also internationally [international student] focused, which provide helpful and related information. The structure of the session – presentation and then information booth is genius.
The length of presentations was appropriate, it is able to give a general briefing about what the institutions have to offer, their specialities and degrees available. The experiences from past or current International students are friendly and engaging to me, and prompted me to choose one institution over another. Multiple screens in the venue were very convenient, the acoustic was clear at the front, where I was sitting.
The information booth is very helpful. It provides me opportunity to ask in-depth and individual questions and interact with representatives from various institutions for the first time. I went to every single booth and made friends with the student representatives from University of Adelaide. The presenters are friendly and willing to help. They are experienced and ready to answer my questions.
Overall, the session was effective and helpful for International students. Considering the increasing number of International students currently studying in secondary schools applying for tertiary institutions, it is very supportive to have information sessions like this.”
Angela also provided some valuable ideas to improve the session for the future benefit of international students in our schools – thank you Angela!
