Choosing the right school is an important part of a great year abroad. As a part of the selection process, UP Global offers its students an opportunity to get to know the schools, and get information of the schools directly from the schools’ representatives. Over the years, we have built wonderful long-term relationships with many schools, and we want to continue doing that. Since 2018, we have offered schools opportunities to personally meet with our students and families prior to them making decisions on which schools to apply to.
The meetings in Helsinki, Finland, have been successful, and the feedback from all parties involved has been fantastic. This year, because of the ongoing restrictions to international travel and gatherings, we have prepared to hold our Meet Your Schools 2021 online. Instead of the personal meetings that we have arranged in Helsinki in previous years, we have selected this virtual platform that enables the schools to meet with our families, and to bring many of the same networking and learning opportunities, but also to reach out the social element as our physical Helsinki Weekend in the past. On this platform, UP Global brings together the schools from across the ocean and families from Europe to conduct one-to-one online meetings, as planned.
