This week IICS held a mini fair of UK universities, including admissions representatives from sixteen different institutions. Occasions like this give students a direct opportunity to ask questions to schools they are interested in. Just as importantly, it gives admissions people an opportunity to get to know our students on an individual basis and learn things about them that an application may not illustrate. For instance, IICS University Counselor, Dr. Cherie Mobasheri, advised students that the university reps were very interested in hearing about their personal projects, many of which demonstrate intriguing topics students are passionate about and a depth of independent research that impresses recruiters and gives them more than just GPAs upon which to base an opinion of a student. University reps who attended this week’s event commented how impressed they were with the level of maturity of IICS students and the ease with which they expressed themselves.
