Mumbai – U.S. Consulate General Mumbai will hold a University Fair in Pune on September 13, 2014. The University Fair is free and open to the public. It will take place at the Westin Hotel (Koregaon Park) between 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to not only meet Indian alumni who have studied in the United States, but also learn about the university selection process, admissions-related exams, and how to apply for a U.S. student visa.
The University Fair will have representatives from 25 diverse universities and colleges from across the United States. Among the institutions represented are Arizona State University, Columbia University, Harvard University, and Gallaudet University, which specializes in education for hearing-impaired individuals.
U.S. Consulate General consular officers and advisers from the U.S.-India Educational Foundation (USIEF) will be on hand to deliver presentations and answer questions from students and parents on selecting a university and applying for a visa. In addition, globally-recognized testing organizations—SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, and IELTS—will send representatives.
U.S. Consul General in Mumbai Tom Vajda said about the upcoming Fair, “There are more than 100,000 Indian students studying in the United States. Given the quality and diversity of U.S. educational institutions, I am confident that Indian students can find a U.S. school that is the right fit for achieving their educational goals. By bringing together alumni, education advisers, and Consulate staff, Indian students and their parents can get the information they need to make the best decisions about their academic futures.”
