NEW DELHI: An education fair right at home. Unbelievable, but that was the experience students had at Edufair, the first ever online education fair organised by Eduguy, India’s first digital admission and career counselling platform.

Over 2,000 students, stuck in their homes and anxious about their future as admission processes in colleges remain stalled, joined Edufair. Through 10 hours of discussions and counselling, Edufair helped students and their parents decide what course of study was actually suitable for them to follow.
The fair brought together about 40 colleges and institutions handling student queries across 40 virtual auditoriums on a single online platform from where aspiring students could find out everything they needed to know about with over 200 courses and subjects.
Edufair provided a wonderful opportunity for students to virtually walk through the fair, hop on to any number of virtual auditoriums, attend discussions and talks by eminent speakers, speak to representatives of colleges and find institutions of their choice, all of this while sitting in the comfort of their homes. “Edufair is a fresh new concept by Eduguy that is technologically advanced that aims to bridge the gap between universities, institutions and the students.
