Organised by the British Council Vietnam, the exhibition will hit Melia Hotel in Hanoi, Intercontinental Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and Grand Mercure Hotel in Danang on October 11, 12 and 14, respectively.
Vietnamese parents and students will find information on diverse pathways to university, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, alongside information about 99 scholarship programmes.
A focus on skills will be the highlight of this year’s exhibition. “Living Books” or Vietnamese alumni will be invited to share with future UK-bound students their valued experience in building a successful career, starting with the right choice of what to study from undergraduate levels.
These alumni are those who have landed jobs with global or local organisations in Vietnam and honed a great deal of professional experience in such areas as business, communications, and engineering, amongst others.
Participants can meet them in person or listen to a staged talk themed “Skills for a GREAT Career,” where the “living books” are joined by a human resource expert.
Apart from this, other workshops will introduce to prospective students a world of study options in the UK, the process to apply for a student visa and tips to achieve a high score in IELTS. Every participant will receive the latest edition of the Education UK Guide Book.
About 180 lucky participants will have a chance to register for the free IELTS mock tests in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, which include the Reading and Listening modules.
