On March 5th, 22 stu­dents of KIS atten­ded the first Inter­na­tional Uni­ver­sity Fair ever held in Vienna. We were offered a free shuttle ride to Danube Inter­na­tional School and were met by our host, Lucija. The fair itself was only offered on a by invit­a­tion only” basis to stu­dents from private IB schools and high pro­file high schools in Aus­tria.

It was really excit­ing to be able to talk one-on-one with rep­res­ent­at­ives and admis­sions officers from vari­ous uni­ver­sit­ies from coun­tries such as Canada, France, UK, Neth­er­lands, France, Ger­many and Switzer­land. After get­ting ourselves acquain­ted with the vari­ous admis­sion and schol­ar­ship pro­ced­ures of the uni­ver­sit­ies of our choice, we also atten­ded two short lec­tures, one on find­ing the right uni­ver­sity and one on how to suc­cess­fully write a per­sonal state­ment.

It was def­in­itely two hours well spent and – who knows – attend­ing this fair might have laid the found­a­tion to some stu­dents’ future life and career.
