The Student Expo is the biggest gathering of parents, students and industry players and is South Africa’s only exhibition for current and prospective students to explore every element of further education and student life. This year's Nationwide Student Expo 2012 will be hosted over a 2 day expo at the end of November and December in Durban, Pretoria and Cape Town.
The exhibition was initially conceptualised to overcome a shortage in student accommodation, but has now evolved into a 360 degree student life experience. Prospective students will be able to seek career advice, meet tertiary representatives and gather information on courses that are of interest to them.
Also, school leavers will have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of what university life entails and the facilities that will be available to them when they start studying including gaining insight into social and sporting clubs.
School leavers will also be able to secure student loans, transport and accommodation as well as learn how to manage finances when living away from home.
Graduates can explore careers opportunities both locally and internationally, learn to develop their CV’s, interview skills, meet potential employers and find out more about graduate recruitment placements.
