The student fairs are back to allow young people to meet training institutions and move forward in their information efforts to build their orientation project.
Thus, it is not one but three thematic exhibitions that will take up residence this Saturday, November 13 at the Congress Center, at the Cité internationale (Lyon 6e): the Grandes écoles exhibition , the Arts, communication and digital fair and the Health, social, paramedical and sports fair.
Student fairs are an opportunity to meet managers of schools and training organizations, but also students. Visitors can thus understand the specificities of each sector and attend conferences led by a journalist from the editorial staff of L’Étudiant magazine.
On all the shows, 153 exhibitors mobilized during the day of November 13 to inform the high school students in reflection on their post-baccalaureate orientation. As a reminder, senior high school students will have to make their choice on the Parcoursup platform from January 2022. Bac + 1 to Bac + 3 students looking for training to continue their higher education are also welcome.
L’Étudiant lounge. Saturday 13 November from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Congress Center, 50 quai Charles-de-Gaulle, Lyon 6e
Lyon, student city
Lyon is in 2nd place in the 2021 general ranking of French student cities, tied with Rennes, according to the ranking of the Étudiant editorial staff. If the capital of the Gauls hardly wins any points for the quality of the climate and the accommodation criterion, its universities can congratulate themselves on their good success rate in L1.
Indeed, the passage rate in L2 is nearly 49%, when the highest rate is 57%. Otherwise, the city can also rely on a dynamic economy. The unemployment rate is quite low and the number of jobs has increased in ten years.
Something to delight those who would like to stay in the city to work after their studies. A shadow on the table: Lyon remains relatively expensive, whether on rents or for transport subscriptions.
