U.S. university education fair in city a big draw

Committed to helping Indian students pursue world-class education in U.S.’
Over 1,200 students and parents had their doubts cleared on university education while they got vital information on admissions, courses available and visa process at the annual University Fair organised by U.S. India Education Foundation (USIEF) and EducationUSA.

Attended by U.S. Consul-General in Hyderabad Katherine Hadda, the fair saw the presence of 43 American educational institutions. “Education is a prominent pillar of the growing U.S.-India partnership and we are committed to helping Indian students in their journey to pursue world-class education in the U.S.,” she said.

“Today’s event is just one way in which we try to ensure that students in Hyderabad have access to accurate information as they make choices about their future in academics. There are over 40 institutions who have represented here and that is the highest ever for the fair in the city. These institutions clearly recognise the immense talent pool in this region and are eager to have these students at their colleges and universities,” she said.

The participating universities represented a wide geographic area in the United States offering a range of academic programmes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. “We were able to get information directly from these institutions about their programmes and admission criteria,” said several students who had come to the venue looking for their dream college/university to study in.

Information sessions were also held to help students make informed choices about their higher education options in the U.S., navigate the U.S. student visa application process, and seek out financial aid opportunities.

There are over 1,86,000 Indian students studying in the United States, and more than 17% of the international students in the U.S. are from India. All of these students are pursuing courses at one of the 4,500 universities and colleges there, officials said.

Some of the participating institutions included the New York Institute of Technology, George Washington University, Colorado State University, University of Southern California’s Viterbi Graduate School of Engineering, Arizona State University, and University of Alabama.
