Tripoli, November 2, 2010 – EducationUSA, together with the Libyan General People’s Committee for Education and Scientific Research, Al-Fateh University, Linden Educational Services, and Waha Expo are hosting – for the first time – a comprehensive event to showcase the best of American education.
The 2010 Study in the USA Education Fair, to be held November 6 – 7 at Al-Fateh University in Tripoli, is designed to provide Libyan students and their families with all of the information necessary to choose the best American university and best degree for their needs.
More than 30 American universities, colleges, English language schools and boarding schools will be represented at the fair.
The fair runs from 10:00 to 16:00 on November 6th and November 7th and is open to the general public, free of cost. Media are invited to cover the official opening ceremony at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 6. Guests of honor and speakers are scheduled to include U.S. Ambassador Gene A. Cretz, the Secretary of the General People’s Committee for Education and Scientific Research, and Al-Fateh University officials.
There are currently more than 1,800 Libyan students studying in the U.S. at academic institutions across the country. Many of these students are on full academic scholarships sponsored by the Libyan government, and the U.S. Embassy salutes the emphasis that Libya has placed on providing unique opportunities for Libyan students to pursue degrees at America’s best academic institutions.
The Embassy hopes the 2010 Study in the USA Education Fair further strengthens these educational exchanges and provides participants with all of the information they need to make the most informed decisions. The fair will include sessions on how to prepare the best possible admissions application; how to apply for a student visa; and how to prepare for student life at an American university, among other topics.
