Students gain insight

For the first time in South Africa, students, graduates, matriculants and parents are being offered access to everything they need to know about courses, careers, campus life, loans, accommodation and transport – all under one roof at one time in the nation’s major regional centres.

The SA Student Expo – an Africa first for the organisers, Student Expo Ltd– promises to be the greatest gathering yet seen of young achievers, their parents and businesses wishing to reach out to this unique audience. 

The Expo is being staged at the Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg on 23 & 24 of November, then at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on November 24-25 before finally moving to the Durban Exhibition Centre on December 6-7.

The unique event is expected to attract more than 20 000 students, said Heidi Garbade, director of the expo. The Expo brings together more than 100 exhibitors, including major corporates, financial service providers, professional bodies, real estate firms, developers, motor dealers and tertiary institutions. 

In addition, the exhibition programme features daily seminars addressed by speakers from various industries.  

The Expo therefore enables Grade 9 learners to identify appropriate subjects ahead of university entrance while Grade 10 – 11 learners can explore their higher education options and how to apply for a university place.

For matriculants, information is readily available on student loans, transport and accommodation.
