UNIVERSITY FORUMS

Thanks to the internet you can now get most of the basic information about universities and their programs online. But if you want face-to-face contact with real people you should consider looking into university forums, where many universities gather in one public space to answer any questions that prospective students might have. The key advantage of a forum for a candidate is that he or she can meet with as many universities as he or she desires in one place at one time. It is the quickest and most efficient way for candidates who are beginning their search to gather helpful advice and information on different universities and programs.

Forums also offer schools the advantage of talking with thousands of prospective students, increasing their exposure and getting a general idea of the quality of the candidates. Going to a university forum will allow you to talk with school representatives about how the admission process works, how to get financial aid, and how to obtain more in-depth details on the programs you’re interested in. They are scheduled throughout the year, usually in fall and winter, throughout the world. They are usually free, and some require registration while others don’t.

Although it kind of defeats the purpose of being able to communicate with school representatives in person, there is a website that organizes online college fairs: www.onlinecollegefair.com

To know if the university that you’re interested participates in a university forum, contact their admissions department and ask them. If they don’t they will surely be able to give you contact information of someone from the school who can answer your questions.
