When I was in high school, I remember how my school will always have an educational fair every year for the Form 5 students. For me, it was such a huge step back then to graduate from high school and step into the real world of University. 

Yeap, I m sure it's pretty nerve-wrecking for all the students who are going to sit for their SPM and start a whole new journey as a college students; because I was that student back then. Therefore, it was pretty nostalgia to have attended IACT educational fair awhile back ; it brings back so much memory of me being a high school student.

Before I start, I always like to give an introduction about the main character for this post. So, IACT College is the Creative Communication Specialist in Malaysia. The College offers an array of programmes in Media and the Creative Arts. Pioneering Project-Based Learning (PBL) in its classes, students are trained with real-life projects, which are provided and assessed by industry leaders. This has successfully produced many job-ready and award-winning graduates who are now leaders in their industries.

That morning the college was packed with so many high school students. To be more specific, a total of 33 students from SMK Tropicana and what's more interesting is this educational fair was the first Education Fair held by IACT College themselves in its city campus in Jaya One. I have to say , they have very effective and informative booth for parents and students to get to know more about what course that suits them best and what are they looking for as well.

All the guest and students was able to go on a student-guided tours around the college which included the course stimulations and trial classes within the College's latest facilities.Moreover, the school's counsellor, ms. Catherine Thomas was filled with joy and expressed her excitement by saying that . "The fair was a great opportunity for my students to gain awareness on high income jobs available in the creative world." Well indeed she was right. In this creative world of industry, we are bound to compete with each other in order to be more creative then one another other. That's how the best one wins.

Furthermore, with over 80 partnered universities ovrseas, IACT student also have the greatest privileged to have the fastest option to earn an honors degree in just 3 and a half years after SPM. OWH WOAH, come on guys ! Now this is interesting, I mean you get to graduate a semester earlier then any other colleges could offer. Think about it again !

In order to make all the parents and students to feel closes to the heart, IACT College has also set up a live testimony through two Diploma in Advertising alumni, Abiseshana Mohan (Copy Write at Saatchi & Saatchi) and Wong Jia Li ( creative Copywrite at Leo Burnett ) to give a word of two about what they've gained and learn in IACT. Both shared a very valuable insights and learning from their time at the college and abroad at the University of Hertfordshire and University of Sunderland, UK.

Besides than the two students, guest were also inspired by Danial Kulian and Robin Gan, current student of IACT who shared their experience as an interns at 8TV and Eye Believe ( a creative content production company) as well.

After a well content speeches from all the students and representative, I got the chance to visit the college facilities. My first opinion about their facilities was, I FREAKING LOVE THEIR LIBRARY. Well at least it's has a pretty creative architecture :)

It was a nice experience visting IACT College, I've heard about it before but never really have the chance to see the college as a whole.
