A number of education fairs will be held later this month by 70 Canadian institutions in Vietnam's major cities, introducing education and sponsorship chances to the study in the North American country.


The three education fairs are a part of the 3rd Annual Canada Education Week. They represent a full range of education options from kindergarten to college and university, the Consulate General of Canada said in a press release.


One fair will take place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City on October 23, another at the Da Nang University in central Vietnam on October 26 and the third at the Grand Plaza Hotel in Hanoi on October 29.


Visitors will be informed of study permit procedures, features of the Canadian education system, and specific opportunities offered to international students.


Interested students can also meet with Vietnamese alumni to hear about their experiences on studying and living in Canada.


Every year, more than 200,000 international students arrive in Canada, which invests more in its education system than any other country in the 30-member Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the G8 group of the world's largest economies, the release said.


With tuition fees lower than many other developed countries, Canada also allows international students graduating from an eligible post-secondary institution to stay and work for up to three years, it said.
