Immediate enrolment opportunities available for Hong Kong students at the Education UK exhibition 2015
A two-day event that gathers around 70 UK schools, colleges and universities for free consultation and a series of seminar
Representatives from nearly 70 UK schools, colleges, and universities gather at the British Council’s Education UK exhibition, which commenced today, to offer free consultation and immediate enrolment opportunities for students and parents. The exhibition is free of charge and will continue tomorrow from 13.00 to 19.00 at the InnoCentre in Kowloon Tong.
Steve Corry, Regional Business Development Manager at British Council, said ‘Hong Kong remains the top English-speaking overseas study destination for higher education this year due to its quality education, the global exposure that it offers, and various teaching styles that equip students with necessary skills for better employability. We expect the number of applications to UK colleges and universities through UCAS, the Universities & College Admissions Service, will be around 6,700 in the recruitment cycle of 2015-16. From the pre-registration data to the exhibition, business and administrative studies remain the most popular subjects among Hong Kong students.’
The final deadline for applications to 2015/16 undergraduate courses in the UK through UCAS is 21 September 2015, while the last day to add a Clearing choice of subject is 21 October 2015. However, students are advised to contact universities and colleges directly to discuss vacancies.
Moreover, a series of seminars are available for students and parents to learn more about the pathway options between the UK and Hong Kong education systems; gain better understanding on the UCAS application journey; and obtain up-to-date information on the admissions requirements of individual institutions. A taster lecture and a talk on employability are also available so that students can understand what they could expect from their university life and after they complete their studies. Students can also benefit from personal sharing by Education UK student ambassadors on university life in the UK, local culture, and tips for preparation at the pre-departure briefing.
The British Council IELTS team will be offering guidance on the application process and will deliver a seminar to share advices on preparation of the exam. Also, details of scholarship opportunities and enrolment methods will be delivered in the exhibition.
