OPUVIA FAIR is an international education platform that offers educators the opportunity to showcase their educational brands, network with parents and students alike for the purpose of boosting their academic or professional enrolments.

The education fair also offers an opportunity for parents and students to interact with both local and international university and college admissions representatives’ for the purpose of making better enrollment and education investment decisions.

WHY OPUVIA FAIR

The Opuvia fairs come as tours; we offer a series of recruitment activities during these tours, which are geared towards maximizing your recruitment trip and hence providing you holistic solution in the Africa student recruitment market, which makes us unique, and number one in the Africa.

Our tour activities include…

OPUVIA FAIR Exhibition is the best method for organic recruitment of international and local students. Students typically prefer it because it’s easier to navigate than searching online. Meeting face to face with an admissions representative who can answer on the spot questions and clear up any confusion a student (or their parent) might have.

Our exhibitions are like a job fair. They are held in few different locations during our tours (like convention centers, private venues or hotels). At the exhibition, there are multiple educational vendors/exhibitors that share information about themselves, their college or university.

We introduce universities and colleges to well prepared, motivated students with the means and preparedness to study nationally or internationally. At the fair, talented professionals unite their hard work, creativity, skills and motivation to help universities and colleges recruit students during carefree recruitment circuits.

We do ALL the work, take on ALL the risk and TRIPLE guarantee results.

We give exhibitors an opportunity to organise private seminars about their brands during our tour period. We handle the seminar logistics and recruitment of participants.

We offer a variety of seminar planning and coordination services to make your event a success. We are able to assist with events large and small, both on and off campus. There is a fee for our services.

UNDERGRADUATE RECRUITMENT

 

  • Visit some of the Africa’s leading high schools.
  • Engage face to face with students.
  • Build and maintain relationships with careers advisers and school directors.
  • Maximize your experience with an all-inclusive tour.

We are moving towards an increasingly digital world with the growth of AI and robotics, but there are still several areas where human interaction is important and takes precedence over technology. An example lies in student recruitment events, where universities can connect with students on a personal level, allowing them to learn more about how that university could be a good fit for them.

Every year, OPUVIA focuses on organizing student and talent recruitment events that brings access to quality education and vast career opportunities.

To this our high school visits are great opportunities for our local and foreign educators to meet face-to-face with prospective quality students on their campuses and classrooms who might be interested in studying in their institutions, because we believe “Nothing can replace…face-to-face interaction’’.

Our high school visits are open to all registered and confirmed OPUVIA FAIR and OPUVIA DAY exhibitors who wishes to join us for these visits which are focused primarily on undergraduate recruitment.

Our visits are an excellent way to meet high-quality students at some of the best elite high schools in Africa.

Our goal is to maximize your time with students, while still allowing you to build relationships with their career advisors and school administrators.

The elite high schools we visit during every tour are carefully selected by our experienced liaisons, and all the schools we visit have a tradition of excellence in teaching, high student achievement, and a commitment to assisting students in finding their educational and career paths.

Friendly OPUVIA staffs take care of the planning, organization and management of all aspects of the High School Visits leaving representatives free to focus on their interactions with students. Not only will this translate to a successful tour, but also a comfortable and carefree one.

As a volunteer, before you open your mouth or hand over a scholarship application, you’ve already demonstrated to participating educators that you have initiative and positive intellectual qualities.

As an added bonus, volunteers will receive a formal letter of thanks and certificate of recognition with references from the OPUVIA FAIR organizing committee.
