On Wednesday November 13th
, students at ALHOSN University joined thousands of fellow students from around the world in a virtual education fair which brought them in direct contact with over a hundred top U.S.-based universities. This was part of International Students Day which was presented by Education USA, a U.S. Department of State-supported network of hundreds of advising centers around the world. International Students Day is a free online event dedicated to helping students to learn more about studying overseas. The American Corner of Abu Dhabi City was instrumental in facilitating this unique experience for ALHOSN students. The Virtual Education Fair allowed students to have a live chat with many universities, including the University of Miami, University of Washington, among others. Students were able to pose questions to study abroad experts about admission and students’ experiences. About a dozen male students and twice as many female students from the Faculties of Engineering and Business participated in this interesting exchange.
