U.S. University Fair takes place in Bangladesh Five U.S. Universities Share Study Opportunities in the United States.

The U.S. Embassy, through its Education USA platform, hosted a U.S. University Fair at the EMK Center on Friday, March 1, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Five U.S. university representatives from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the University of Northern Iowa, the New York Institute of Technology, the University of Texas Arlington, and The Chicago School participated in the mini-fair. All five U.S. college recruiters returned to Bangladesh due to the notable rising interest in the number of Bangladeshi students pursuing higher education in the United States.

This was a unique opportunity for Bangladeshi students to speak with U.S. university representatives about admission requirements and scholarship opportunities.  Students also received tips on submitting a dynamic and comprehensive application.  Additionally, the program featured information sessions led by U.S. Embassy officials and EducationUSA advisors on the F-1 student visa process.  Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Nathan Flook welcomed the students and university representatives to the mini-fair.
