What is Global Fair?
Global Fair is a program where exchange students can introduce Chung-Ang University students their home universities. Chung-Ang University students can also get information on choosing a university to study abroad. At the Global Fair, CAU students have time to ask questions about the partner overseas universities that they are interested in, and learn about the exchange programs. It is a great opportunity to communicate with foreign students and to get more information about studying abroad or going on exchange.
Global Fair is an event held every fall, promoting Chung-Ang University’s partner universities and programs. Global Fair is mainly held in front of the Youngshin Hall, and exchange students from partner universities take charge of the booth and introduce their university to the CAU students. However, due to the COVID-19 situation, the event was held in a non-face-to-face manner, via online, this year. When students participated in the Zoom meeting, they watched the introduction of each university and the interview video prepared by GLAM and exchange students. When CAU students asked questions, exchange students answered them. The 2020 Global Fair was held on December 1st, 2020, and about 350 students participated, which was a success!
In the 2020 Global Fair, students who went on exchange program abroad and who have participated in ‘working holiday’ shared their experiences as well.
