ICSK - Virtual Higher Education Fair 2021

IIM AHMEDABAD, IIT ROORKEE, NIFT DELHI PARTICIPATING IN THIRD HIGHER EDUCATION FAIR AT ICSK

Higher Education Fair 2021 is one of a kind mega event organized by The Indian Community School, Kuwait on Friday 5th February 2021 & Saturday 6th February 2021. This educational fair is a unique venture organized by the school from 2019 onwards with exclusive focus on around 20,000 students from 21 Indian schools of Kuwait and it has been a resounding success amidst the Indian diaspora in Kuwait. Undaunted by the global pandemic, we are showcasing the Higher Education Fair 2021virtually, as we nurture the ideology of providing the best for our children.

The Higher Education Fair 2021 will be inaugurated by Dr. Shashi Tharoor who is a writer and former international diplomat who has been serving as Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, since 2009. He was formerly Under-Secretary General of the United Nations and contested for the post of Secretary-General in 2006. He also serves as Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology and All India Professionals Congress. He formerly served as Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs and in 2019 he received the Sahitya Academy Award for his book “An Era of Darkness” in a non-fiction category in English language.

ICSK has hosted the Higher Education Fair with more than 50 universities answering queries of our children and this year is no different. More than 45 universities from India, UK, USA, Canada and Malaysia will be participating in this mega event. The Higher Education Fair 2021 at ICSK is unique as IIM Ahmedabad, IIT Roorkee, NIFT Delhi and National Forensic Sciences University, Gujarat are participating for the first time on the same platform in the Middle East providing a golden opportunity exclusively for the students here which is not even available for students in India. This Higher Education Fair is therefore an opening to new vistas of awareness on various courses and career opportunities to a larger group of students of Middle East from classes 9, 10, 11&12. Student participants from Kuwait, Middle-East and from any part of the world can meet the personnels of various universities and directly interact with them. 

As we are all aware children in the Middle East have very little exposure to the wide spectrum of careers available and therefore the Higher Education Fair organised by ICSK will be a huge opportunity for the students to meet Dr. Sethumadhavan T. P, a career expert, who can provide the required insight and right information to help streamline the students to choose various courses and careers according to their aptitude.

On both Friday 5th February 2021 & Saturday 6th February 2021, ICSK brings to your very homes an exclusive opportunity for direct interaction and open-ended conversation with representatives of Universities / Colleges providing larger outlook into the opportunities to choose from. On the spot admissions and scholarship opportunities are the highlights of the venture. We are also organizing a lucky draw for all registered participants from among whom one winner will be gifted a 100 KD voucher.

The Indian Community School, Kuwait has organized such a prestigious event with forethought and cognizance of the higher educational entailments of the students. Quality education and student welfare being the prime focus, the Higher Education Fair 2021 is yet another platform arranged by ICSK providing access to a wider range of information and opportunities to all the Indian students in Kuwait. ICSK welcomes your whole hearted participation and encouragement for the success of this grand venture.
