Education fair in October

STUDENTS intending to study in Britain will have the chance to meet representatives from major universities, colleges and institutions in an education fair.

The Education Counselling Service (ECS) of the British Council is holding an exhibition in October at the China Resources Building in Wan Chai.

Representatives from 84 British universities and colleges of higher and further education will be in the territory to interview qualified students over the age of 16, and to conduct seminars.

The aim of the fair are to assist Hongkong students to submit late application for admission into full-time courses for October 1993, as well as to provide a second opportunity for those whose first application was unsuccessful.

It will also provide information on a wide range of courses and institutions, such as the GCSE and GCE A-level courses.

''Study in Britain - Interviews and Seminars'' is not an open exhibition. Students need to book an appointment with the ECS office in order to be interviewed by the UK representatives.

The ECS office is on 16/F Easey Commercial Building, 225 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai. They can also call Liza Lai on 879-5151 for more information, during office hours.

The office hours are Monday, 12.30 pm to 8 pm, Tuesday to Friday, 12.30 pm to 5.30 pm and Saturday 9.30 am to 1 pm.

Meanwhile, a Information Handbook has been printed, which has a separate entry for each institution, a list of courses which still have vacancies, and details of the seminar programme.

It is necessary to complete the Student Enquiry Form and speak with an ECS counsellor about the five institutions you have narrowed down to before an interview can be arranged.
