2016 Canada Education Fairs in Vietnam
(VNF) - From October 12th to 16th, the Consulate General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh city, in cooperation with the Embassy of Canada in Hanoi, announce the 2016 Canada Education Fairs taking place in Da Nang city, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city, with a record number of over 100 participating Canadian institutions.
The 8th annual fairs are open to the public and will take place at Novotel Hotel in Da Nang city on October 12th from 16h30 to 18h00; at Melia Hotel in Hanoi on October 15th from 09h00 to 15h00; and at GEM Centre in Ho Chi Minh city on October 16th from 09h00 to 16h00.
Canada spends more per capita on education than any other G7 country and welcomes more than 350,000 international students every year. Last year, some 4,921 Vietnamese students were studying in Canada, ranking Vietnam 11th among source countries for international students.
Canada’s education system offers world-class faculty, cutting-edge technology, competitive tuition fees, perse population, and opportunities for international graduates to gain international work experience.
According to a 2014 survey by HSBC, international students studying in Canada pay some of the lowest fees amongst developed nations; lower than Australia, the US, and the UK, and even lower than Asian countries like Singapore and Hong Kong (China).
Students and families are encouraged to take this opportunity to meet directly with Canadian institutions’ representatives, learn about Canada’s education system and study options available, understand the visa application process and work opportunities for international students after graduation, as well as meet and learn from experience of alumni. A special seminar on applying for student visas will be led by a Canadian immigration official, aimed at providing the public with transparent and clear guidance on this topic of concern./.
