US education fair to take place in Nicosia next month

Getting education advice at the Fulbright

EducationUSA Cyprus, under the auspices of StudyUSA Higher Education Consultants Ltd. and the support of the U.S. Embassy Cyprus, is hosting the 18th annual U.S. University Fair on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the J.W. Fulbright Center, next to the Ledra Palace Hotel, Nicosia. Twenty U.S. universities and colleges will be represented.  Entrance is free.

The fair provides an opportunity for students considering the US for higher education to meet with admissions officers and local alumni representatives.  Students can learn first-hand about the institutions represented.  Scholarship opportunities are available at many of the US universities participating this year, the US embassy in Nicosia said.

The United States remains the #1 destination for international students for higher education.  According to Open Doors Data, nearly 900,000 international students were studying at American colleges and universities in the 2013-2014 academic year, and 19.3 percent of these students were primarily funded through their universities.

StudyUSA Higher Education Consultants Ltd., which is supported by the US embassy in Cyprus, offers advising services to students interested in studying in the US. Through their advising program in 2014-2015, they assisted their students to secure $2.76 million in financial assistance from US colleges and universities.

For more information about the Fair, including a list of participating US institutions, and StudyUSA Higher Education Consultants, visit www.studyusa.com.cy or email [email protected]
