Yesterday, 50 universities and educational institutions gathered for the 11th edition of the University Fair organized by our school. The aim of this event was to make future university students aware first-hand of their academic offers, as well as their scholarship programs, facilities and other characteristics.
Due to current circumstances, the event was held both online -the most chosen option- and onsite -option chosen by 20 universities that also had the opportunity to offer an online webinar.
The online format has allowed the number of attending students, parents and teachers to multiply since, in addition to ELIS Villamartín last year’s students, many others from the rest of the Cognita schools in Spain have joined the initiative, benefiting from this great event.
National and international universities were encouraged to participate in this fair as ELIS Villamartín is accredited by the Spanish and British authorities, which means that our students graduate with dual official qualifications (British A-Level and Spanish Baccalaureate).
According to Natalia Tomás, Head of Sixth Form, “with this initiative we provide more support and guidance to our students at the end of Upper School with the intention of broadening their knowledge about university options both in Spain and internationally, so they can make better decisions about their future”.
