Education UK Exhibition 2015

Monday 26 January 2015

 

British Council presents 'Education UK Exhibition' from 31st January to 1st February, 2015 from 11:00 to 17:00 hours at the Everest Hotel, New Baneshwor, Kathmandu and on 3rd February at Hotel Pokhara Grande, Pardi, Pokhara.

With a view to promoting UK education and increasing the understanding of the UK's expertise in education, the event is organised in an exclusive way where students and parents will get a chance to meet representatives from 18 UK institutions. There will also be seminars & presentations by representatives from the British Council, the British High Commission (UKBA) and UK institutions.

The event is the biggest opportunity for face to face discussions and interactions among the alumni, students, aspirants, parents, career advisers, agents, representatives and people from all walks of life looking to broaden their educational horizon. The growing demand for overseas education is becoming more apparent as many Nepalese students pursue higher/further education and those who already have qualifications, wants to upgrade or update them.

Studying abroad is becoming more and more popular with a variety of career opportunities available for aspirants and students. In many cases students are in a dilemma with regard to choosing the right career with the right aptitude. Taking this into consideration, this exhibition is focused on complete guidance about the career opportunities that are available enabling prospective students to make the right career and education choice.

British education, famous for its breadth and academic excellence offers outstanding education to students from all over the world. Independent thinking and student centred learning are the hallmarks of the British degree courses. British higher education offers shorter and more intensive courses than what are available in many other countries. The quality of education, the exciting multicultural lifestyle and benefits to career prospects all combine to make the UK amongst the top destination for international students worldwide.
