Fall 2020 Virtual Fairs
Post-Secondary BC Fall Fairs have gone virtual this year. Any Grade 12 or 11 student who is looking for information on post-secondary programs in BC is encouraged to participate in the PSBC Fall 2020 Virtual Fairs. These fairs are scheduled on the following dates and times:
Monday November 16th 2 pm to 6 pm
Tuesday November 17th 3 pm to 7 pm
Students will need to register online (https://postsecondarybcvirtualfair.easyvirtualfair.com/prefair/) to access the PSBC Virtual Event platform, called Easy Virtual Fair. You can register at any time, even 10 minutes before the scheduled event. Students will have access to the platform as soon as they register, and they will be able to access the website even after the Nov 16 &17 events. Students can explore the different booths to access videos, viewbooks, etc.
On the scheduled event days, students can expect that representatives from the PSBC member schools (30 institutions in BC) will be available to chat and/or offer presentations. Each post-secondary school will have their presentation schedule posted in their booth if they are offering live presentations (UVic will be offering four live presentations throughout each event time). Students will simply visit the booth they are interested in, go to the "presentation" tab and then click on the "attend" button at the time of the presentation. This will take them out of the Easy Virtual Fair platform and to the presentation platform that post-secondary school has chosen. For most schools, Zoom is the presentation platform of choice.
Students can return to Easy Virtual Fair and check out other booths. They will also have the ability to chat with reps within the platform. Post-secondary reps will be available during the scheduled event times; however, students have access to the platform at all times.
The Nov 16 & 17 events are for the students in the Greater Victoria Region, but if you are not able to log in on those days, there is a general event scheduled on November 14th (3 pm to 7 pm), which is open to students from all regions in BC.
