The Embassy of Canada in Hanoi and the Consulate General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh City are pleased to announce the 2012 Canada Education Week, which will be held from October 7 to 13 in Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, and Hanoi.
The highlight of Canada Education Week will be the 4th annual education fairs featuring almost 70 Canadian education institutions with representatives available to answer questions face-to-face and provide information on the Canadian education experience, including the academic environment and student lifestyle. Whether it's kindergarten to grade 12, summer school, English as a second language, college, undergraduate, or postgraduate, the full range of education options will be represented. Students and families are encouraged to take this opportunity to learn about Canada's education system, scholarship opportunities, and the visa application process. A special seminar on applying for student visas will be led by an Immigration Officer from the Consulate General of Canada. Alumni of Canadian universities and colleges will also be present to share their experiences about going to school in Canada.
Canada spends more per capita on education than any other G8 country and welcomes more than 239,000 international students every year. Canada's world-class educators, cutting-edge technology, competitive tuition fees, and diverse population make Canada one of the best possible choices for prospective students. This year's events will also feature a "Canada Corner", where visitors will have the opportunity to explore the natural beauty that Canada has to offer. As always, admission to the fairs is free of charge.
