|European Union Virtual Education Fair 2 -- Education/Training Services|
|Pre-Register for this event|
Are you interested in an excellent opportunity to recruit international students from the European market, specifically France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands? How would you like to recruit without ever setting foot on a airplane? Here's your chance!
Join a unique, virtual opportunity to introduce accredited U.S. English as a Second Language and other short-term programs to pre-qualified international student recruitment agencies.
Participants will be given a low cost opportunity to introduce their school to education agents in the European Union.
The event will be held on May 15, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. EDT/7:00 a.m. PDT. The U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce is organizing this event
We have slots for only six (6) participants to showcase their ESL and other short-term programs. These institutions will present their school to potential European student recruitment partners through a live internet conference call connection from their office or home.
The cost to participate is $650, which is a fraction of the cost of traveling to Europe to introduce your institution. The deadline for registering is April 9, 2014 (note: may sell out earlier).
Upon receipt of institutional information, the U.S. Commercial Service will review your academic program offerings, accreditations, etc. to ensure an appropriate match.
If selected to participate, we will contact you regarding the required registration and request payment by credit card.
Once payment is fulfilled, we will send you the conference call and webinar participation information, along with dates and times for the web-based training programs.
If you are not chosen to participate, you will be notified with an explation of why your institution was not chosen to participate in this event.
If you are interested in participating, please contact James.Paul@trade.gov.
