Location/Date: St. Louis, MO, United States 10/24/2018 - 10/24/2018
Event Summary:
Are you interested in an excellent opportunity to recruit international students from Nigeria? How would you like to recruit without ever setting foot on a plane? Participants will be given a low cost opportunity to introduce their school to high school counselors and select students in Nigeria. Join a unique, virtual opportunity to introduce accredited U.S. undergraduate programs to high school counselors located throughout Lagos, Nigeria, who are being encouraged to bring any of their students interested in studying abroad. The U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce is organizing this event that will be held on the morning of October 24, 2018 (the afternoon of October 24, 2018, in Nigeria). Only six (6) participants will be showcased from those educational institutions that express interest. These institutions will present their school to an audience of high school counselors and students through a live Internet-Conference Call connection from their office or home. The cost to participate is $710 (for non-profit public/private schools), which is a fraction of the cost of traveling to Nigeria to introduce your institution. Registration opens on August 30, 2018 at 12 pm EST (based on first come, first serve). Upon receipt of institutional information, the U.S. Commercial Service will review your academic program offerings, accreditations, etc. to ensure an appropriate match. If selected to participate we will follow up with you regarding the required registration and to assist in making payment by credit card. Once payment is fulfilled, we will send you the conference call and webinar participation information, along with dates and times for the web-based training programs. If you are not chosen to participate, you will be notified by email with an explanation of why your institution was not chosen to participate in this event.
