At Edufair, we showcased numerous opportunities for pursuing higher education abroad, particularly in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, and Switzerland. Many of these countries also provide pathways to permanent residency and citizenship. Students aiming for overseas education should prepare for standardised tests, establish a regular study routine, and allocate sufficient time for practice and enhancement. At Y-Axis, we provide support for each destination, facilitating a smooth transition and successful application process.

With a growing openness to new-age professions, parents expect schools to equip children with the necessary skills for these careers. Deira Private School meets these expectations, offering a truly well-rounded education and an inclusive environment with 20 per cent special students. Edufair provided us with a valuable platform to engage with parents from diverse backgrounds and collaborate with industry partners. Panel discussions allowed us to share our perspectives on critical issues and strengthen the education community through meaningful interactions.
