On Wednesday last week we had the pleasure of hosting a team of representatives from international universities. We had guests from: Bishop’s University in Canada; Concordia University in Canada; IED Istituto Europeo Di Design in Italy, Spain and Brazil; Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam; and IE University in Spain. The group were led by careers consultant and IEW founder Antony Adams who was excited at being able to come to the east of England as most international recruiters only visit London. Antony founded IEW to “encourage students to think creatively and differently about their post-16 options.”
At the event (which was repeated at Norwich High School for Girls and East Norfolk College, Lowestoft) DSFC students were able to ask Antony about aspects of international study such as the range of courses offered and the cost of study abroad, as well as talk individually with the different representatives.
The concept of studying abroad is becoming an increasingly popular option for British students, especially as our own university fees approach the £10,000 per annum mark. Studying abroad can prove a much more economical option, particularly with the possibility of generous scholarships. At DSFC we already have a strong connection with American universities thanks to our DESA students, many of whom have won scholarships as a results of their sporting and academic prowess. Year 12 student Bryony Henshall is already considering going to university in the US: “Today’s event is especially useful in broadening my knowledge of other international studying options.”
For students who want to find out more about these options they can go on the relevant section of UNIFROG where many questions will be answered. There are also two events on the horizon which will prove useful and informative. The first of these is the Higher Education Scheme launch event on 8th November where experts will be on hand. The second is a day of information and talks which will be held in early December. (Students who are signed up to the Norfolk Higher Education Scheme will be receiving invitations to these two events shortly.)
An exciting new destination option for our students – watch this space for further news and information!
