Those who want to study abroad will have the chance to talk with the representatives of some of the most important international universities, colleges and high schools, at the most important educational fair of the year. World Education Fair will be organized this weekend at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Over 5,000 visitors are expected during the two-day event. Visitors will have the chance to talk with the representatives of 90 educational institutions from all over the world about university courses, master of arts, MBA, high school courses and foreign language academic camps.
The fair is the only fair of its kind in our country and will take place in Constanta and Craiova too. “We used an integrated consultancy concept to meet the demands of parents and children who are interested in learning abroad. Basically, under the Education 360 logo, at the World Education Fair, information can be accessed about all educational areas a young student comes into contact with when he or she wants to learn abroad. We are talking about information on academic camps, through which young students can get accustomed with the language and system abroad. Then, visitors can be exposed to the educational offers of the most prestigious international high schools and colleges. Eventually, the young students who want to enrol in bachelor of arts, master of arts or MBA programmes abroad will have here all information directly from the source, including the information related to scholarships and loans,” IntegralEdu University Department Manager Ana Maria Papp stated.
IT studies abroad, most sought-after by Romanians
Currently over 45,000 Romanian students study abroad, at various educational levels – high school or university – and their number is growing by approximately 20 per cent per year. According to IntegralEdu statistics, the young Romanians who leave to study abroad choose the following studies, in this order: IT, business management, media and communication, hotel management and engineering.
In what concerns the university “destinations” of young Romanians, the rankings are topped by United Kingdom (Coventry, Greenwich, Lancaster), the Netherlands (The Hague University of Applied Sciences) and Denmark (VIA University). “1 in 3 young people who come to us with their minds set on a certain foreign university end up radically changing their choices after talking with our consultants, even in the sense of changing their study domain. It is very important for young people who want to study abroad to assess their resources and knowledge base before setting out on this road. Because of this, ever since the first years of high school it is essential to discuss with an educational consultant that would professionally assess the young student before he decides on what career to embrace and where to train for it,” IntegralEdu University Department Manager Ana Maria Papp stated.
