Information about Kick Off

Every spring and autumn Across the Pond pland to travel around to the biggest cities in Norway and host a "Kick Off" event for students interested in studying in Britain. The idea of the Kick Off event is to complement the larger events that you are familiar with, and also offer an alternative to direct “school visits”. We are pleased to say that we are now ready to invite partner universities to participate in these events.

We rent a small venue and invite local students, parents, families etc. to have an opportunity to explore the possibilities of studying in the UK. This event is a great opportunity for the students who are not able to attend education fairs or other events, to learn more about studying in Britain, Across the Pond and our partner universites. This event is open to everyone, free of charge.

During the event Across the Pond will hold a 20-30 minute long presentation, followed by the universities' presentations (20-30 minutes) and then 30 minutes of mingling and informal chats.

We hope this is an interesting and attractive opportunity for you to further engage in the Norwegian market, and if you can't participate this time there should be further opportunities in the Autumn, and Spring of 2016.
