As an international student, I understand the various thoughts that go through your mind before applying for a university overseas. I have been through the process and can relate to it. I’ve realised that a great source of information that I’ve got is through attending University Information Day before I’ve sent in my applications. Here are the five things that I have found beneficial attending the University Information Day.

This is a key benefit of attending University information day where representatives from various universities will be present at one place allowing you to interact and get a one on one counselling with the university or the school staff.
