If you’re one of the many students around the world unsure whether to go ahead with your plans to study abroad or not, you can attend a live information session held by universities to help you make an informed decision.

We’re currently in a pandemic, but it won’t be forever. While there’s no telling how long countries will be on lockdown and implementing travel bans, it will ultimately come to an end and life will (hopefully) resume as normal.

Right now, you may be unable to visit a university fai. But through these information sessions, you can interact with representatives from the university and find out more about their programmes.

It’s also a great way to spend your time productively and stay motivated for the future if you’re in self-isolation or on lockdown.

Here are some upcoming online live information sessions by universities to check out if you’re planning to study abroad.

If you can’t find information about an online session from a university you’re interested in applying to, you can always e-mail and ask them if they will be holding one soon. If they aren’t, they may be able to have a video call with you for a one-on-one information session – it never hurts to ask!
