International Education Fair to begin at Hotel Taj Coromandel today

Following the season of examinations, it is the season of making choices for students. When it comes to higher education, particularly abroad, a host of options are available, but how does one go about choosing what is best for him or her? This is where ‘The Hindu Education Plus International Education Fair 2010' can help.

Being inaugurated at Hotel Taj Coromandel in the city on Friday, the two-day Fair is aimed at making available comprehensive information pertaining to higher education abroad.

Representatives from popular universities in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand, Philippines, Germany, France and Switzerland will be present at the venue. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with them.

Counselling sessions focussing on different courses in disciplines such as Engineering, Management, Medicine, IT, Fine Arts, Aviation, Animation, Fashion, Hotel Management and Hospitality, and other aspects such as country familiarisation and visa counselling will be part of the event.

Organisations such as the British Council, USEFI and STB will also conduct workshops for the benefit of students.

Organised by The Hindu Education Plus, the annual event, in its third edition, seeks to provide a forum for students, with complete solutions for education abroad, bringing education providers and students on the same platform.

The fair will be held on Friday and Saturday at Hotel Taj Coromandel from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., both days.

N. Ram, Editor-in Chief, The Hindu, and Bryan Dalton, acting Consul-General, U.S. Consulate-General in Chennai, will participate in the inaugural on Friday at 9.15 a.m.
