Lovely day to all!
Remembering myself just a few years ago, when I was yet having my last year in high school, I can very well remember how interesting and exciting it was for me to learn more about studying at Finnish Universities. I think every person feels this way to some extent when s/he gets to touch his dream, because at these moments you are living your dream. I actually read and watched everything my eye could catch and I could put my hands on: from universities’ official web-sites, CIMO newsletters, higher education guides, students’ blogs, Finnish education system descriptions to social media pages, YouTube channels and reviews. Believe it or not, some important aspects were not absolutely clear for me still, as those mentioned above are not all first-hand sources of information, so you can’t blindly rely on them. In a small town where I come from, there was no information at all. Even though I did a good deal of search at different types of sources, I was not 100% sure whether I am doing everything right. I still had some uncertainties on the application process, I was not sure if my document package is full and is in good order, and you know, there are always these little things you stay unsure about.
Only one year later, when I was already a student of Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, did I get to know that there is a great opportunity for those willing to receive reliable and first-hand information on entrance examination, document packages, scholarship application, campus facilities, student life as well as get hold of university brochures and talk face-to-face to the students of the university you want to apply to. You can learn and do all of these and much more at the international education fairs. There is one taking place already today on the 22nd of October 2016 in Moscow, and another one tomorrow on the 23rd of October 2016 in Saint Petersburg. If you have just any questions, you would not want to miss them, as it is just a perfect opportunity. By the way, the entrance is absolutely free. For more information, please refer to the official website of Saimaa UAS: http://www.saimia.fi/ru-FI/ .
If I had an opportunity like that, I would have definitely taken advantage of it. You get all the answers to your questions in just a few minutes’ time, and it might also save you a lot of money, as you will be more aware of how the process goes, and you might choose to do the document package preparation on your own, for example.
This is all for today.
Have a nice day and see you soon J
