BISP held its second University Fair of the year yesterday (19 November). Welcoming 43 universities from throughout the world, the fair was open to all students in Phuket, including from BISP, HeadStart, PIA and QSI, with parents also in attendance.

Professors from the universities gave taster lectures and masterclasses in different subjects, including engineering, psychology, biotechnology, art and politics.

University representatives also gave informative talks on different topics, ranging from computer game design to careers on oil rigs, working on superyachts, and studying in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands and New Zealand. Some workshops were delivered via online presentation platforms or Skype.

This term alone, BISP has received visits from almost 80 universities, with one university representative yesterday commenting that, “the school is the most pro-active in the region”. We look forward to welcoming more universities in January.
