The U.S. Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassies in Poland, Austria and the Czech Republic are organizing educational fairs and partnership development opportunities in their respective countries from April 23 to April 27, 2018. In Warsaw the fair will take place on April 24-25 in the beautiful library of the University of Warsaw. Come to Warsaw and promote your school in Poland!
The fairs will connect U.S. educational institutions with prospective students and potential institutional partners. The program in Warsaw will include briefings from the U.S. Embassy, networking events with potential partners and a student fair. Representatives of accredited U.S. institutions of higher education — undergraduate and graduate — are encouraged to register. The fairs are being held with the support of the Fulbright Commission and the U.S. Department of State’s EducationUSA service.
Why Central Europe?
Central Europe is a dynamic and quickly evolving region of the European Union with amazing development in the last 20 years and a strong tradition and interest in quality education.
Poland is unquestionably a prime target from which U.S. educational institutions can successfully recruit both undergraduate and graduate students. This market not only represents the sixth largest country in the European Union in terms of population, but also, from a demographic standpoint, contains a population heavily skewed towards young students with a keen interest in higher education. Poland also presents many opportunities for institutional partnerships. In 2016 the fair attracted over 800 students, who came to talk to the school representatives and attended an information session on study in the US organized by the Public Affairs Section in cooperation with Polish EducationUSA team. Dates: April 24-25
The Czech Republic offers great recruitment potential. High quality educational programs, coupled with having English as the standard second language, produce a large pool of highly qualified candidates for both undergraduate and graduate studies in the United States. Study abroad programs and institutional cooperation are on the rise. Selected students may also be able to obtain scholarships from several new private foundations. Date: April 23
Now is the best time to recruit prospective students from Austria! Study abroad is seen as an absolute must for many students, and one-third of students intend to study overseas. As a result, it is no exaggeration to say that study abroad is a booming business. Summer camps, as well as special English language and mentoring programs, all contribute to a large, highly-qualified pool of applicants that will be of great interest to U.S. colleges and universities. Dates: April 26-27
