You have just finished your Bachelor studies or you will be done with it soon and you are positive, that you want to continue your education. However, this is the only thing you are positive about. You can’t decide what should be your future study, at which university, in which country and language.
You know (and you hear it from your family, friends and relatives all the time) how important is your Masters for your future career path and life in general. And the importance of this decision makes your choice even harder.
If this scenario sounds familiar to you, continue reading this article. It is true, that finding out which is the best Masters for you is not the easiest thing. Instead of lapsing into frustration and stress, you should start collecting information upfront. The more info you have, the more confident and well prepared you will feel.
A great, easy and fast way to do so is visiting a study fair. Here are some of the advantages.
Meet study advisors
There are great Masters events in Europe, where you can meet study advisors and representatives of many universities and other educational institutions. It is a great way to get in personal contact with them and ask questions. You can discuss with them your interests and wishes for your future education and career. Share with the specialists what is your obtained Bachelors degree and eventually your notes and they might give you ideas about suitable Masters degrees.
Often you could meet educational experts, who don’t represent a specific university. This is a good option to discuss different institutions and general information about your future study – where, what, how and etc.
At a study fair you don’t just walk around universities’ booths, but you can also watch their presentations. This is a great way to learn more about the offered study programmes, but also about campuses, university life, admission process, institution’s history and traditions.
Target your visit
Choose your field/fields of study and get a personalized guide, showing only the institutions that offer programmes of your interest. This will save you a lot of time and lead you to specialized university. If you are interested in arts and culture, you will also reach Art Colleges pretty fast among the big universities that offer all kind of studies.
