Students planning to study abroad will get to interact with global institutions like the Johnson and Wales University of the US and British Institute of Technology at a major fair to be held in Mumbai on April 18-19.
The Indian international education fair "Education Worldwide India", to be organised by Global Events and Expositions, will be held at the Nehru Centre. Over 50 institutions from more than 12 countries are participating in it.
SNDT Women's University Vice Chancellor Chandra Krishnamoorthy will inaugurate the fair.
Global Group officials said they expect over 8,000 students to attend the fair, where they will be given information on various streams like management, tourism, medicine, fashion and graphic design.
The participation from the Indian Air Force and Coast Guard will be an added attraction.
Global Group's chief marketing officer Siddharth Jain said, "Appropriate guidance is necessary for students these days to select a proper course. With the world's top institutions taking part in the fair, students are set to get up-to-date information on various professional courses."
Entry for the fair will be free and students and parents can attend seminars organised by universities.
"Parents can accompany students for the seminars since they need to have one-to-one conversation with representatives from these universities and understand everything about a particular course," Jain said.
