Staff Reporter

MUSCAT Around 45 universities and colleges from seven countries are participating in the two-day Ghedex Autumn 2013 that opened at Oman International Exhibition Centre on Sunday.

The institutes are mainly from the UK, the US, Malaysia, Australia, India and Germany, besides the Sultanate. This is the first edition of Ghedex Autumn and was inaugurated by HE Dr Abdullah Bin Mohammed Al Sarmi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Higher Education.

“Ghedex Autumn offers students another opportunity to enroll for courses with preferred higher education institutions of their choice. Four to five universities are participating for the first time,” said Ashit Barnes, Senior Manager-Trade Fairs, Oman International Trade and Exhibitions (OITE) which has organised the event.

“We have invited all government schools and international schools for the event as it will provide an opportunity for students to be aware of the various study options at top universities from seven countries,” he said.

“Griffith University in Queensland, Australia offers over 500 graduate programmes. Business and IT is the preferred by Omani students,” a representative of Griffith University said.

 “Amideast has been participating in Ghedex for five years and welcomes the opportunity to provide young people with information about higher education opportunities in the US,” said Sarah Jackson, Amideast  Oman Country Director.

“Students wishing to learn about higher education opportunities in the US will be happy to note that Kent State University is participating at Ghedex 2013, along with the US Embassy and Amideast,” said EducationUSA Adviser Laila Kabbash.

“We have been active supporters of Ghedex in the past, aiding Omani students in their pursuit of education in the UK through enrolment within premier British higher education institutions,” said Paul Doubleday, Director, British Council.
