Students get a ‘reality check’ at Prem’s International Uni Fair

Prem Tinsulanda School recently staged its annual Prem International College and University Fair for students from all Chiang Mai international schools who are seriously considering furthering their education by studying at colleges and universities either abroad or elsewhere in Thailand.
Forty-four universities from the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea and, of course, Thailand sent delegates to the fair to convince would-be graduates to choose their university. Grade 10, 11 and 12 students from all over Chiang Mai, including Lanna International School, CMIS, APIS, NIS, Grace and, of course, Prem itself descended on the fair to investigate their opportunities further.
The event was organised by Jon Hartmann, career councillor at Prem, who told the Chiang Mai Mail that, “the mission of this fair is to help all international children’s schools in Chiang Mai. It is a reality check, as, prior to today, the kids were just fantasising about which university to choose, and now – the day for the choice has come!”
Students got the chance to discuss fees, accommodation, visa requirements, courses and what the prospects are at the individual universities. They can even swap emails and keep in contact with the delegates from their chosen university.
The most popular university at the fair appeared to be Canada’s University of British Columbia. The Chiang Mai Mail’s reporter did wonder, however, what the kids would make of 6 months of below-freezing temperatures and deep snow.
