International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education initiative is part of our efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
One of the events highly recommended for students during IEW is the annual EducationUSA International Students Day virtual college fair, organized in partnership with CollegeWeekLive, which will take place on Wednesday, November 16 between 10:00-22:00. Each year, more than 20,000 students from around the world take part in this 12-hour virtual event and interact with international student recruiters from more than 100 U.S. institutions of higher education.
Students and parents participating in the fair will have an opportunity to chat with school representatives about study in the United States, academic programs, and available scholarships for international students. The fair participants will be able to join various live presentations as well as tour the schools on-line.
