Study Advisory at Studia 2016!

Dear students in or of Finland, next week on 29th and 30th of November StudyAdvisory participates at Studia fair in Helsinki. Our booth is 5J45 where we will be with our partner university Stenden University Bali.

At the fair, you can meet higher education institutions and agencies from Finland and abroad, as well as employers, associations and more.

Study Advisory at Studia 2016!
Come join us for informal discussions about studying abroad!

Whether you would like to know more about our search engine, a partnership opportunity, a particular country, or about Stenden in Indonesia, we look forward to discussing with you! A quizz is also awaiting motivated attendees every hour from 10 am, so be ready to answer well and fast!

At our booth this year, we will especially be delighted to interact with high school students and current students about the possibilities that are available abroad. High school students have been very much on our mind, and we have visited a few as you will discover in our next blog post.

Study Advisory at Studia 2016!
Stenden University Bali provides the same curricula as in the Netherlands, for the Bachelor of Business Administration or International Hospitality Management, with a year in the Netherlands too.

So:

If you are attending Studia, see you on Tuesday at Messukeskus! A map of the fair can be found here.
