On Monday, September 24, British International School, Phuket hosted representatives from nearly 100 colleges and universities from 16 different countries at the Phuket University Fair. About 500 students and parents from BISP and five other Phuket schools came to meet with the representatives. The admission officers were thrilled with the turnout. One commented, “This is such a great fair! So many wonderful students and parents.”
Our University Counsellors Dale Ford and Jacqui Brelsford leveraged their worldwide university contacts in getting so many different institutions to attend. The University representatives were very busy speaking with students about options for higher education. One representative said, “This is one of the best fairs I’ve attended in a long time.” It was a great opportunity for them to see so many students and learn about BISP and other schools in Phuket.
We are fortunate to have such positive relationships with university admission officers. Both of our Counsellors spend a lot of time networking with admission representatives during the year, to learn about different university opportunities. BISP graduates apply to and attend universities all over the world. Having so many universities on campus helps students to identify those institutions where they will continue to be happy and successful.
