Dear students and parents, the current Covid-19 pandemic may have brought challenges to you, or your children’s quest to pursue further education. More so for those of you who are looking to further your studies abroad. With health and safety issues in mind, the future of travelling abroad is still uncertain, what’s more when it comes to studying abroad.
Nonetheless, you will be glad to know that while the fight against the pandemic is still ongoing, you can still continue to pursue your dream to study in your dream institutions or destinations – be it locally or internationally, with Scholarship2u’s Virtual Scholarship Fair (VSF) 2020.
VSF, as its name suggests, aims to simplify your scholarship application process in a safe, virtual environment. Eventhough online, VSF offers you a wholesome fair experience where you get to browse for potential schools and universities, check out programmes that you’re interested in and ask questions to participating schools and universities – just like what you would experience in a physical fair, only more convenient without the physical crowd.
Happening this coming 10-11 October 2020, VSF doesn’t only bring you its virtual convenience, but also connects you with hundreds of local and international institutions offering an array of programmes for different education levels from A-Level, Foundation, Pre-U, Undergraduate to Postgraduate.
Besides that, there will also be scholarships worth up to 1 billion up for application to help ease your financial burden, especially if you are aiming to study abroad. Among participating countries you can expect in VSF are the UK, USA, Switzerland, Spain and more. So, save the date, and get all your documents ready for the big day!
By bringing its large size of participating institutions from local and international countries to you, online – VSF takes you 1 step forward in your quest for further education.
But that’s not all as VSF also employs an innovative scholarships-to-student’s matching system that would automatically recommend you available scholarships based on your search interest. All it takes is just one-time, online submission of all your results and necessary documents.
This allows you to skip tedious repetitive preparation as you would usually do by having to prepare a set of documents for each and every institution/scholarship you are applying for. Furthermore, this efficient matching process also saves you from being overwhelmed by an array of information and options that you may not need when applying manually.
Note: Since many of VSF’s participating international institutions come from different countries with differing time zones, VSF will keep its virtual door open until 11 October 2020 (Sunday). You are encouraged to submit your application through VSF on the 10 October 2020 (Saturday) itself or start creating your free student profiles now, here as we edge closer to the fair so that all your documents are lined up and ready to go on D-day.
Now that you know how VSF can help get you closer to your dream of pursuing an education in your dream country, let’s walk through VSF’s brief processes to help ease your application process on the event’s day:
Before you can submit your scholarship application to VSF, you are required to register and create your full student profile with VSF. Once done, you can virtually roam around VSF to discover all the participating institutions, just like you would in a physical fair. Take a moment to watch live video feed, browse virtual booths or participate in a live video chat by your preferred institutions.
Besides that, when you refer 5 friends to VSF, you will receive a complimentary Scholarship Benchmark Testing (normal price USD30, or est. RM124). The Scholarship Benchmark Testing is one of the eligibility criteria in effort to match you to the right scholarships according to your interest, fortes and examination results.
That’s not all, as every registered participant will also receive a complimentary E-Book, ‘Winning Your Dream Scholarship’ (worth US$50, or est. RM207).
At VSF, you’d also get to learn and gain valuable insights from representatives of participating local and international institutions for relevant tips and updates on the ever-changing education landscape.
Listen to VSF’s guest speakers as they deliver their keynote on engaging topics in various fields such as “How To Ace Your Scholarship Interview”, “Want To Be A Master Chef?”, and “Beyond STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.”
