On 3 February some of our Year 12 students visited UNITOUR, a fair designed to help pupils decide on their professional future by providing them with information on universities and courses.
Representatives of universities from all over Spain were at the Fair to provide visitors with information on their own university concerning the campus, international agreements, entry requirements, etc for all the courses they offer.
Alex Belaiche explains his experience:
Two weeks ago, a group of Aloha IB students (me included) visited a university fair in Malaga. The fair was organised by “Unitour” for students that are considering the possibility of studying in Spain. About 20 universities were present this year including universities such as “Universidad Carlos III”, “Universidad de Navarra”, “Glion”, “Les Roches” and the well-known “Instituto de Empresa de Madrid”. Each university had its own stand with leaflets and prospects with all the information about the university and the courses that it offers.
If you needed specific information and you preferred to speak to a representative about it, you could. There was at least one representative per stand that could provide you with all the information you needed. Once you have visited all the stands you wanted, you can go and have a coffee at the nearest Starbucks that is situated in “El Corte Inglés”.
I recommend the fair to all the students that are considering staying in Spain for their studies. However, keep in mind that the universities present there have more business and art-oriented courses and there are no medical oriented courses offered.
