Feedback from students who attended previous Schools and Universities Days:
The university fair gave us the opportunity to ask any personal questions, and all their answers were useful. I liked how they weren’t trying to persuade us to go to their university and gave alternative routes and suggestions.
I really enjoyed the university fair event, I really believe it changed my outlook on studying Chinese and my future as a whole. The people were really helpful.
The university fair was very useful because it gave me a good idea of the different types of course that different universities had to offer and so has helped my decision in which university/course to do.
I got to see in what ways you can continue Mandarin after school and see the different opportunities universities were giving along with Mandarin.
