The U.S. Commercial Service (USCS) and ELS Educational Services, Inc. (ELS), of Princeton, NJ will organize U.S. Education Fairs for twenty U.S. institutions of higher education in four cities in Nepal and India between November 14 and 19, 2016.
The U.S. Education Fairs will take place during International Education Week during which the U.S. government celebrates international education and exchanges at Embassies and Consulates around the world. The Fairs will be hosted in four cities: Kathmandu in Nepal, and New Delhi, Kolkata and Thiruvananthapuram in India. In each city, the twenty U.S. institutions of higher education will meet with hundreds of students and have opportunities to make connections with partners in the education sector.
Each student fair will have representatives from EducationUSA, a U.S. Department of State network of over 400 international student advising centers in more than 170 countries. EducationUSA is the official source of accurate, current, and comprehensive information on U.S. higher education opportunities. There are seven EducationUSA advising centers in India and one in Nepal, which are assisting students in accessing higher education opportunities through virtual and in-person outreach sessions and one-on-one consultations.

These twenty institutions of higher education come from the undergraduate, graduate and community college levels throughout the United States. They offer a broad range of study abroad opportunities, including four-year colleges and universities, graduate programs, and two-year community colleges offering associate degrees and certificates. The two-year community college option, which is lesser known in India, gives students an opportunity to attain a two-year degree at an accredited institution, and thereafter transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree. Community colleges can be an attractive option due to their relative affordability and smaller class sizes.
