The fair aims to help students select a suitable course and university by providing adequate guidance.

Students will get an opportunity to explore options for study abroad and interact with foreign education providers or their representatives at The Hindu-EducationPlus International Education Fair being conducted in Kochi on May 9. The venue is Taj Gateway, Marine Drive. Entry is free.

With options for studying abroad ever increasing, the task of selecting a suitable course and university and deciding on related study facilities can become a daunting task if adequate information and guidance is not available. The fair, organised annually in major southern cities such as Chennai, Coimbatore , Kochi, Hyderabad and Bangalore, aims to help students in this regard.

Along with institutions, many consultants will make their services available at the fair to help students with various formalities.

This year, universities from countries such as Canada, U.K., U.S., Singapore, the Netherlands, UAE, Germany, New Zealand, Malaysia, Australia, Italy, Latvia and some other European countries will be present. The universities will provide counselling to the students.

Students and parents can take part in the event, for which registrations will take place on-the- spot at the venue.

There will be seminar sessions on destination-specific opportunities and Visa formalities.

The fair will be open from 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
