Event Summary:
Join Us to Explore Emerging Educational Markets and Build Recruitment Channels

The U.S. Commercial Service at the U.S. Embassies in the Czech Republic, Poland, and Austria, in cooperation with EducationUSA and the Fulbright Commission, are organizing educational fairs and partnership development opportunities in their respective countries from April 23 to April 27, 2018. Representatives of appropriately accredited U.S. institutions of higher education, both undergraduate and graduate, are encouraged to register.

Meet Students and Potential Partners

The fairs will connect U.S. educational institutions with prospective students and potential institutional partners in these markets. The stops will include embassy briefings, networking events with potential partners, and student fairs in Prague, Warsaw, and Vienna. The program in each country is coordinated so that you can easily travel and attend all three stops.

Why Central Europe?

Central Europe is a dynamic and quickly evolving region of the European Union with amazing development in the last 20 years and a strong tradition and interest in quality education.

The Czech Republic offers great recruitment potential. High quality educational programs, coupled with having English as the standard second language, produce a large pool of highly qualified candidates for both undergraduate and graduate studies in the United States. Study abroad programs and institutional cooperation are on the rise. Selected students may also be able to obtain scholarships from several new private foundations.

Poland is unquestionably a prime target from which U.S. educational institutions can successfully recruit both undergraduate and graduate students. This market not only represents the sixth largest country in the European Union in terms of population, but also, from a demographic standpoint, contains a

population heavily skewed towards young students with a keen interest in higher education. Poland also presents many opportunities for institutional partnerships.

Now is the best time to recruit prospective students from Austria! Study abroad is seen as an absolute must for many students, and one-third of students intend to study overseas. As a result, it is no exaggeration to say that study abroad is a booming business. Summer camps, as well as special English language and mentoring programs, all contribute to a large, highly-qualified pool of applicants that will be of great interest to U.S. colleges and universities.
