HONG KONG students who wish to further their studies in the UK this year will have a final chance to meet British university and college representatives at a special interview and seminar event organised by the British Council's Education Counselling Service (ECS). Ninety British institutions will take part in the 'Study in Britain 1995 - Interviews and Seminars', to be held from August 16 to 18 at Exhibition Hall A, Chinas Resources Building, Wan Chai. Participating institutions include independent schools, colleges of further education and higher education, and universities. Over 1,000 students are expected to be interviewed and selected by the institutions for 1995 entry. 'For those students who have not yet applied,' says ECS director Neil Maynard, 'this annual event will be a unique opportunity to meet British representatives in person and gain first-hand information about the institutions before making their final decision.' It also gives students who failed in their first attempt to enter a UK institution in 1995 a second chance, Mr Maynard added. Booking for interviews is underway, and continues till August 12. For more information, call 2879-5181 or visit the ECS office at 16/F, Easey Commercial Building, 255 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. At the ECS office, students can pick up an information handbook which lists the course vacancies and admission requirements of all participating institutions. Student applicants can also make use of the ECS library and consult counsellors before making their bookings at the office. Each person can make appointments with up to five institutions. Over 860 interview bookings have been made so far. Students who are unable to come to the ECS office before August 12 can also make interview bookings on the spot during the three-day event. However, representatives of the institutions are likely to make their decision on acceptance quite quickly. Once the vacancies on a course are filled, entry to the course will be closed. 'It is therefore advisable for students to book their interviews early', Mr Maynard said, 'so that they can have a wider choice of subjects and institutions.'
