The USIU-Africa Admissions Team - represented by Jane Asava, Jackline Mabia and Elaine Andanje - was at Bunyore Girls High School over the weekend for the annual Bunyore Girls Careers Day, which attracted over 2,000 students from other neighboring schools.

The event provided a platform for our Admissions Officers to engage with the students and share information on programs offered, university entry requirements, financial aid scholarships, co-curricular activities, student life, and much more.
In attendance were several schools including Chavakali High, Chavavo High, Keveye Girls, Eregi Girls, Tigoi Girls, Mudavadi Girls, Maragoli Girls, Kaimosi Girls, Ebusiratsi Girls, Hobunaka Boys and Girls, Ramba Boys, Ebulonga Secondary, Mukumu Boys and Girls and Chango Secondary.

Another team of Admissions Officers were also present at the World Link Career Day that was held at Naivasha Girls’ High School on June 2-3. The team interacted with Form 3 and 4 students from six high schools with a total of about 500 students. There was an interactive panel question and answer session that saw the team answering questions from the students. Many of the students were very inquisitive about the career options and the qualifications for various programs at USIU-Africa.

On the second day of the event, the USIU-Africa team interacted with about 1,000 Form 1 to 4 students from seven high schools. The event was primarily held to guide Form 1 and 2 students on the subjects to select for their KCSE exams and how their selection would affect their career choices, as well as informing the Form 4 students on the career options they could pursue after high school.

Last weekend, the Admissions team was also at the St. Georges Girls High School Career Fair, which was open to Form 4 and Form 2 students. The team gave a presentation on why the students ought to join the institution, as well as interacting with the students in regard to the programs offered, the entry requirements and the career paths after graduation. The students were interested in Pharmacy, Animation, Criminal Justice studies, Software Engineering and Finance courses.
