While the academic activities were beginning and the foreign students settling in, we were already travelling for faraway destinations to let more international students know about the opportunities of studying in Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele.
In October we flew straight to Taiwan to participate to the EEFT- the European Education Fair in Taipei, which was quite a success! There were universities from all over the world participating, and many students from high schools attending this event. In addition to our dedicated booth, we had the opportunity of holding a seminar and telling the students details about studying in our English taught programs and what an exceptional time they would have in Milan.
As for ourselves, we were greeted by a vibrant city and had the pleasure of meeting our Taiwanese MD Program students’ families who made us feel so very much welcome! This, we believe, is a great opportunity for establishing long term connections and confirms that the relation we have with our students goes beyond formalities.
On our way back we stopped in Dubai to participate to the BMI Gulf workshop and exhibition, and were very much pleased with the superb organization of these events. Having the chance to meet and speak directly with the high school counselors and deans of the national and international schools of the Emirates is certainly one of the best ways to reach students more directly.
The fairs, workshop and whole experience was great and we hope to see all the students we met in these countries among our new UniSR students very soon!
