After the success of the Severi fair, TutorYou held a second fair at the Istituto Marcelline Tomaseo. This fair was very different from the previous day. Marcelline was a small event with about 40 children in a private school with 16 attendance at the University. This is the 3rd year we have hosted an event in Marcelline and maybe the most successful.
The day followed the same format as Severi. We showed the students a presentation in one of the classrooms telling them exactly how to apply to UK universities by guiding them through all the requirements of an UCAS application. As the presentation was conducted in a classroom to a smaller group of students rather than the 220 students at IIS Severi-Correnti’s auditorium, it felt more intimate and engaging for them.
After the presentation came the undergraduate fair. There were 16 universities in total at the Marcelline fair, many of them were the same universities from the previous day. Here’s a list of the universities that attended:
- University of Warwick
- Queen Mary University of London
- Bocconi University
- Hult International University
- Nottingham Trent University
- Richmond – American University in London
- New European College
- Marangoni Institute
- Bath Spa University
- Condé Nast College of Fashion Design
- Global University System
- IE University
- UCAM University of Spain
- University of Chichester
- Arts University Bournemouth
- ONCAMPUS Foundation
Once again, a handful of own tutors specializing in an eclectic range of subjects from robotics to philosophy were present to talk to students. Students would talk to our tutors about what they wanted to study at university and our tutors would suggest what they thought would be the best courses at the best universities for that specific student. Our tutors were also there to help the students if there was anything about the application process they did not know. Our tutors are the best people to ask when it comes to the application process as they are all university or gap year students who are very familiar with the requirements of UK and European universities.
We think that both days were huge successes despite being very different in nature. We have to thank all those present at the events as they would not have been possible without them. With any luck next year will be as successful as this year!
