India’s largest US education fairs will be hosted on Today in the four Indian cities which send maximum number of students to the US- Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. The education fairs aim to bring together admissions officers from more than 40 American universities and students aspiring to pursue higher education in the US. The fair is hosted by KIC UnivAssist, an organisation for global education engagement. In Mumbai, the fair will be held at the Taj Lands End hotel from 6 to 8 pm with workshops beginning at 5 pm.
Students and parents can meet with representatives from US universities and get answers to their queries about the various degree programs, eligibility requirements, fee structure, living expenses, and other application procedures at these universities. The workshops starting at 5 pm will include a session on US visa requirements led by a representative from the US Consulate in Mumbai. Ganesh Kohli, Chief Mentor at KIC UnivAssist, will lead a session on critical aspects of American higher education and guidance about financial aid and scholarships. To attend the sessions and the fair, students can register free of charge through the KIC UnivAssist’s mobile app “StudentAssist”. Free registrations will also be available at the venue.
Speaking about the current education scenario, Mr. Kohli said, “The American education system boosts academic, professional, and personal development of individuals.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address during his recent visit to the US had pointed out that various American universities have played a key role in nurturing many institutes of technology and management in India. Over 1,32,000 Indian students are currently studying in the US. “There are large numbers of Indian students aiming to enter this high quality American education system and they all need to find their ideal educational fit. This is where KIC UnivAssist plays a role”, added Kohli.
