If you’re one of our Facebook followers, you would be well aware of the fact that last Sunday was a big day for us at UKEC as it marked our first International Fresher’s Fair 2016 in Northern Quarter, Manchester where we welcome some 300 students from all over the world and we have all the deets for you in this post.
First things first, food. It’s true what they say, we at UKEC know how to throw a party for students. Indeed, we pulled out quite a spread with our extensive selection of sushi, Malaysian snacks, pizzas, cakes and biscuits.
Other than food, we also have the other favourite F word of many students… the freebies!

Every student walked away with a goody bag, but that is not all, our official partner Kiehl’s King Street also came along and brought each student a little something special as well as some professional skincare advice and treatment.

Except for the goody bags filled with discount coupons and product samples, we also had a string of prize draws throughout the day.
Including wagamama meal vouchers, a Breakout Manchester session, a 12-month the gym membership, £250 Native Youth online shopping spree, a return flight from Manchester to Beijing courtesy of Hainan Airlines as well as a couple of special prizes for students who successfully enrolled at a university and used our Xinlung visa service.
Meet our official partners:
Many of our Xinlung colleagues also took part in IFF2016:
Apart from the main area where there were prize draws, food and performances, we also had designated rooms for our partners to hold their workshops and seminars.
Results? One-on-one, much more intimate interaction between our students and partners.
So, did you think that was it for International Fresher’s Fair 2016? Well, you couldn’t be more wrong because we still have more goodies to give to you lovely, supportive and wonderful bunch because our hosting venue, Ziferblat
are giving away 30 vouchers to spend at their Manchester branch.
Thanks to everyone who turned up and we’ll see you all again next year!
