US varsities to scout for students at Mumbai fair

Mumbai: As many as 32 leading varsities will take part in the US Universities Fair here Sunday (13th November) in a bid to attract more Indian students, an official said.

The fair is being organised by the United States-India Education Foundation (USIEF) in collaboration with the Institute of International Education, a non-profit organisation.

Representatives from 32 US universities will offer detailed information about their institutions and academic programmes at undergraduate and graduate levels at the fair being held in JW Marriott Hotel, Juhu, north-west Mumbai.

“The USIEF is committed to helping Indian students find accredited US universities that are best fit for their academic and professional needs. We welcome Indian students to obtain genuine and relevant advice from us through these fairs, which have gained tremendous popularity over the years,” said USIEF executive director Adam J. Grotsky.

Students will be able to have one-on-one sessions with admissions officers, who will provide authoritative information about their college and university programmes.
