In September Wellington College International Tianjin, hosted their 4th and most successful University Fair to-date. With over 40 Universities and Colleges from around the globe in attendance pupils, parents and staff, along with pupils from other schools in Tianjin were given the opportunity to speak with the University Admissions officers about their futures. Presentations were held throughout the afternoon by staff and visiting universities. Even our Year 6 junior school pupils were given the opportunity to learn more.
The feedback from both pupils and universities was incredibly positive,
“Thank you so much to Wellington College International Tianjin for hosting such a wonderful fair! I was very pleased to meet with students from different high schools in Tianjin and hope to be able to attend again in the future.”
–Samantha Fifield, Assistant Director of International Admissions, Boston University.
“This was the first time Durham has attended the Wellington College International Tianjin University Fair and it won’t be the last. The event was well-organised, the staff very welcoming and the students interested, engaged and great potential degree students. Thank you to Ed, Jayne and the team for a great event. See you next year!”
–Sharne Procter, Director for the International office of Durham University
“Thanks to the wide choices of universities on offer, I was able to widen my scope regarding my university options such as Kings College London and The University of Aberdeen, both of which caught my eye during the fair. I was also able to get further information on universities I had already picked out and attend helpful presentations for other necessities such as personal statements which will definitely help in the future.”
–Vivian Year 12
Overall the event saw 800 students and parents visit the College which is fast becoming the go-to educational institution in Tianjin for tertiary guidance. Offering expert advice for both International and local students wishing to travel abroad for the next stage of their study, the college takes great care to match, compare and evaluate the right fit for both pupil and university through their University Guidance programme. With the Secondary School pupils abuzz from the University Fair, we can’t wait to start the preparations for next year.
