The US Consulate General in HCM City will hold its first-ever EducationUSA Graduate Fair on September 14 at the Reverie Saigon Hotel in District 1.

This is part of a multi-country fair series, with two stops in Ha Noi and HCM City on September 12 and 14, respectively.

The EducationUSA Graduate Fair gives students the opportunity to interact one-on-one with representatives from 18 accredited US universities offering graduate-level programs, and two educational organisations.

Through discussions with these representatives, students will learn more about the different options available to them in US higher education, including the graduate admissions process and scholarship opportunities for international students, such as the Fulbright Foreign Student programme.

At the fair, students will be able to learn about the student visa process from a US Consular Officer. They can ask questions about the documents required and the interview process, and discuss common mistakes and misconceptions about the visa application process.

The number of Vietnamese students in the US has increased consistently for 17 straight years. Viet Nam remains the sixth leading country of origin for all international students in the US, with more than 30,000 students currently studying there. — VNS
