ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality, value-based education, has joined the 9th Specialized Exhibition of Universities Institutes & Universities Equipments (EDU.9 – 2010) held from March 9 to 11, 2010 at the Sheraton Hotel in Damascus and from March 13 to 15, 2010 at the Sheraton Hotel in Aleppo to discuss its leading academic programs with more than 16,000 Syrian students.
Held under the patronage of Syrian Minister of Higher Education H.E. Dr Ghiath Barakat and organized by Al Haitham Exhibitions and Conferences in coordination with the Ministry of Education, the event is regarded as the largest gathering of public and private educational institutions from Syria and other Arab and foreign countries. Over 40 universities from countries including the UAE, Jordan, Egypt, Malaysia, France, Canada, North Cyprus and China discussed their respective programs and policies, special activities and services. Aside from exposure to various international schools, participants were also invited to view to view the products and services of around 50 exhibitors.
ALHOSN representatives met with students from the top schools in Damascus, Aleppo, and surrounding provinces to inform them of the realities of higher education and explain the university’s unique curricular and extra-curricular approach.
“Since we opened our doors five years ago we have been emphasizing that our programs are available to students of all nationalities. EDU.9 – 2010 provided us with an opportunity to show how talented Syrian students can gain a competitive edge in their chosen line of studies by joining ALHOSN. During our stay we also appreciated Syria’s efforts to provide its youth with various educational options. Moreover, we learned a lot by interacting with our peers from abroad and sharing our views on how to further improve the quality of education in our respective countries,” said Nadine Kanj, Marketing and PR Manager, ALHOSN University.
The Syrian visit extended ALHOSN University’s participation in a series of promotional tours as part of its 5th year anniversary celebrations in 2010.
