EducationUSA's Higher Education Fair 2016 Attracts Hundreds of Vietnamese Students in Hanoi

HANOI, March 17, 2016 – EducationUSA Advising Center at the U.S. Embassy Hanoi hosted the EducationUSA Higher Education Spring Fair on Thursday, March 17 at Hanoi Daewoo Hotel. Forty-five accredited U.S. universities and colleges showcased their schools at the fair and over 900 people registered to attend. University representatives spent two hours meeting with interested students and parents, providing information and answering questions.

U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission Susan Sutton opened the fair with remarks to the audience, which included gifted high school students from the provinces and the general public. Ms. Sutton noted that her highest priority as the Deputy Chief of Mission is to strengthen the partnership between the United States and Vietnam, and one of the most meaningful and productive ways to do this is by building long-lasting connections through international educational exchange. She also shared that “This is a great time to study in America. Not only are there nearly 19,000 Vietnamese studying in the United States, but there are nearly one million international students on American campuses.”
