After a hugely successful 2014 event, Student Expo is back with a brand new series of events aimed at inspiring, educating and empowering tomorrow’s leaders. With events taking place in major cities across South Africa from April until July, Grade 11 and 12 students from all over the country are invited to attend what is sure to be the best event to date.
Last year’s event saw the attendance of leading international institutions from America, Germany, Russia and Botswana, along with thousands of students from state and private schools. A major highlight of this year’s event will be the High Flyers Power Hour, which will run between 09h00 and 15h00. During this time, speakers from various industries across the country and beyond will have a chance to present their products to attending schools and students, in short 10 minute presentations. The line-up for the 2015 Student Expo talks includes the following study areas:
- 09h00 – Universities

Attending students will have the opportunity to meet influential leaders across a variety of industries, while viewing presentations from universities and companies throughout the country. This exhibition offers an extremely useful platform for high school students – especially those wanting to explore the numerous paths offered after school. Presenting students with a full spectrum overview of student life, the Student Expo is designed to offer guidance and direction as well as inspiration on the vast range of opportunities that lie in wait for South Africa’s youth. In addition to potential fields of study, students will also have the chance to learn more about the specifics of student life, from accommodation to finances, transportation, training, social and sporting opportunities. Soft skills such as interview preparation and job hunting will also be covered, further helping to empower school leavers’ in their career growth.
Older students, school leavers and graduates are also invited to attend these life-shaping events, which are open to anyone seeking to expand their horizons and prepare for student life.
