The U.S. Mission in Iraq is hosting an EducationUSA University Fair in Erbil, October 12 and 13, as part of its ongoing activities to promote educational and cultural exchange opportunities between the U.S. and Iraq.
EducationUSA is funded by the U.S. Department of State and provides accurate and complete information – for free – to all students interested in pursuing academic studies in the United States.
The fair will host representatives from more than 20 U.S. universities to meet with prospective Iraqi students. A full list of participating universities can be found on the EducationUSA Iraq Facebook page, www.facebook.com/StudyUSAIraq.
The fair will take place at the Rotana Hotel Ballroom in Erbil on October 12 and 13 from 1:00PM until 6:00PM. All interested students are invited to attend. No prior registration is necessary. To make best use of this opportunity, students are encouraged to bring copies of academic records, TOEFL scores, and scholarship award letters, if possible.
The U.S. Mission in Iraq has two EducationUSA Advisors dedicated to helping Iraqi students from all provinces interested in studying at U.S. universities. Advisors provide information and services to Iraqi students by email, telephone, and online through the Facebook page and official U.S. Mission websites.
Advisors also give group presentations at universities, schools, and at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and U.S. Consulate General in Erbil. EducationUSA is part of the United States’ commitment, under the U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement, to advance educational exchange.
