Helen Lee, from UCAS’ Professional Development Team, will be in Hong Kong this coming week to advise this year’s applicants as well offering support to advisers and parents.

She will be at the ESF University Fair 2014, at Island School on 22 January 2014 as well as the British Council Education UK Exhibition, in Wanchai on 25-26 January 2014. Full details can found on the event websites.

Ms Lee will also be visiting a number of schools to speak to students and teachers in the classroom about their UCAS application and to help explain the admissions process.

UCAS advisers visit Hong Kong SAR, its second largest international market after mainland China, twice a year.

Ms Lee said: “I’m delighted to be back in Hong Kong to speak with students, parents and teachers about applying to a UK university through UCAS. Unlike many countries, we have a centralised admissions service which means you can apply to several universities and colleges using one online process.

“More Hong Kong students than ever before chose the UK as their study destination in 2013, attracted by the excellent teaching, cultural diversity, and quality assurance.”
