Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India]: GIIS Ahmedabad, a leading international school, in association with the Indo-American Education Society (IAES) recently hosted an impactful University Connect Program for its Grade 10 to 12 students in collaboration with delegates from 27 prestigious universities from United States in the Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH) of the school campus. The event aimed to provide students with valuable insights and guidance about higher education opportunities abroad.
The University Connect Program witnessed the participation of over 150 enthusiastic students who were eager to explore their academic prospects in the United States. The students were introduced to the objective of the University Connect Fair and the opportunities they will get to interact with the delegates of reputed US universities and their offerings. Ms. Suman Trivedi, the university counselor, highlighted the benefits of studying in the US along with the eligibility criteria and necessary credentials.
During the program, representatives from the participating universities shared comprehensive information about their institutions, academic programs, admission requirements, and scholarship opportunities. The one on one interaction allowed students to engage directly with the delegates, gaining first- hand knowledge and clarifying their queries regarding the popular courses, campus life, and career prospects.
Mr. Caesar D’silva, Principal of Global Indian International School, Ahmedabad, expressed his delight at the overwhelming response from both students and universities. He emphasized the importance of comprehensive career guidance for students’ academic growth and future success. Mr. D’silva stated, “The University Connect Program with esteemed US universities has opened up a world of possibilities for our students.

One of the attending students, Samiksha Dey from Grade 12-Humanities, expressed her gratitude towards GIIS Ahmedabad for organizing such an informative event. She said, “I interacted with 6-7 universities. Surprisingly, I found out that some universities do not consider SAT or IELTS scores and it will help us get admission more easily.” While Prushti Dalsania said, “For the fact that some of the universities are my favorite ones. I also got to know about the various other courses relevant to me. So I am looking forward to admission to one of the best universities in the US.”
