Virtual fair on US education on Nov. 13
Staff Reporter

MUSCAT The EducationUSA Center at Amideast and the US Embassy are marking International Education Week by providing opportunities for students to learn about higher education in the US.  

The International Virtual College Fair to be held on November 13 as part of the week allows students to participate by visiting the EducationUSA Center at Amideast office in Qurum, or from their home computer. Students can visit online exhibition booths of universities to explore information about admission and programmes at more than 150 US colleges and universities. Students can chat directly with university representatives. Also, live thematic video chats and presentations throughout the day will deal with undergraduate  and graduate admissions and financial aid.

“To help international students study in the US, the State Department supports more than 400 EducationUSA Advising Centers in almost every country. In Oman, the US Embassy sponsors the EducationUSA Center, housed at the Amideast Oman offices in Al Qurum,” Deborah Hart-Serafini, US Embassy Public Affairs Officer, said in a statement.

To mark the week, the EducationUSA Center at 11 Fahoud Street in Qurum will open its doors to students from 8am to 9pm on November 13 for students to access its computer lab to participate in the virtual fair and in sessions broadcast live from the US.

Said Laila Kabbash, who recently joined EducationUSA as the Educational Adviser: “It’s exciting to be able to offer the one-on-one chats with university representatives.”

On the day of the virtual fair, EducationUSA will give special prizes to select participants, and people will answer questions in person, including EducationUSA’s Educational Adviser, representatives of the US Embassy, and Omani students who have studied in the US. Registration is needed for the event.
