Application Advice

Meet student experts that are currently studying abroad as well as motivational speakers who will inspire you and give you food for thought.

Meet the Universities

Meet admissions officers from some of the world’s best universities, and have a chance to ask them questions about how you can get the best chances of getting accepted onto their courses.

Meaningful Networking

Meet like-minded students who are about to or currently applying for full degrees abroad. Networking and building friendships is one of the most instrumental parts of attending the Conference, and you should definitely take advantage of this unique opportunity.


The day begins with registration followed by a networking-breakfast, after which the conference is commenced by a welcoming speech to kick off the day. The conference consists of various elements, each uniquely designed to make for a well-balanced, exciting and informational experience for our participants.

You’re in good company

At the Conference, you will meet many likeminded students, and possibly someone who are interested in studying at the same university or even the same degree as you. You are also met by the NSAC team which consists of many students that are already studying abroad as well as student experts who can answer any questions you may have about what it is like to study abroad. Finally, admissions officers from the world’s top universities attend the Conference, giving you a unique chance to ask them questions directly about your chances to be accepted!

University Presentations

First and foremost are the university presentations, where representatives from the world’s finest educational institutions address the two driving questions behind NSAC Conference: “Why should you study abroad?” and “How do you study abroad?”


Furthermore, the conference includes unique panel discussions that make for a dynamic addition to the programme.

Motivational Speakers

Every year we invite motivational speakers to share their personal stories in between the university presentations and panel debates. Past examples include how they funded their world-class education or how studying abroad changed and formed their lives.

What others say about us

Dr. Emily Tomlinson

– Director of Admissions, Christ’s College, University of Cambridge

The NSAC Conference is unique in my experience: a multi-national conference for students, run by students, which answers real needs and real questions. It’s also a great way for universities to connect with highly motivated, highly intelligent young people who might otherwise ‘slip through the net’

Christian Fredensborg

– Partner, PWC

It’s been a pleasure working with you, NSAC. At PwC we highly value mobility and diversity and I can only encourage you to go study abroad and learn different cultures and countries. It’s so important for you to do that.

Samantha Fossey

– Recruitment Manager, University of Melbourne

The NSAC Conference is, foremost, a celebration of dreams. The organisation and execution of the conference is impeccable. The organising team are professionals.
