The fair aimed to equip students with knowledge about universities worldwide and empowerment to explore future academic and career development opportunities. The face-to-face interactions with university representatives provided attending students with the chance to learn about the courses, admission requirements and the academic resources of different schools.

With TIS’s rigorous curriculum and diversified learning opportunities, students at TIS can obtain the Alberta High School Diploma, which is widely recognized by universities around the world. The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP) provided to students concurrently, also greatly enhances students’ competitiveness for higher education. From Grade 9 onwards, TIS provides students with one-on-one academic guidance counselling, which offers students support tailored to their individual university application needs. This commitment ensures that students receive vital support when planning for their application to renowned universities around the world.
