On the 27th of April the Centre of International Affairs represented the University of Sopron on an online fair, which was held in the Central Asia region.
There were plenty of presenters in the online space, so 5 live presentation rooms were streaming during the 4-hour long fair. 3 other Hungarian Universities presented their study programs, and many other countries like France, USA, Lithuania, Italy and Cyprus also appeared.
Even before the presentation of Boróka Buzsáki, the Coordinator of International Affairs, there were questions asked in the chat room.
These online fairs helps to gain more contacts and of course strengthen the visibility of the University of Sopron on the market. Since we have the application period right now, it was more than useful to give information for the countries located in Central Asia about our study programs in English, about Sopron and the possibilities here. Around 200 prospective students were online listening to the presentation, and some of them asked questions afterwards as well.
All in all we can say, that these kind of fairs deeply supporting us on an international scale.
