The students were treated to an exhibition of overseas study services, language training, pre-university education, and overseas study tours offered by prestigious institutes, such as the University of California— Berkeley, Northwestern University, University of Oxford, London School of Economics and Political Science, National University of Singapore, and Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The schools also put forward a series of information sessions, giving comprehensive and direct suggestions to students interested in furthering their studies overseas.

Student representatives Yang Sen, Li Qinyan and Fang Yunpeng shared their experiences during their studies in the UK, Germany and Japan. They regarded their overseas studies as sparks between different cultures, which not only contributed to their academic growth, but also broadened horizons and enriched lives.
