The US Embassy, through its EducationUSA platform, in partnership with EdPrograms, will host U.S. University fairs and tours in Dhaka, and for the first time, in Chattogram. 

The programme aims to provide prospective students, teachers, and college counselors with a unique opportunity to learn about the U.S. higher education application process from admissions officers from 12 accredited higher education institutions.

The tour entails two university fairs – the first one will be held at the Radisson Blu Chattogram Bay View on Sunday, January 29 and the second one at InterContinental Dhaka on Tuesday, January 31, said the US Embassy in Dhaka on Thursday.

The fairs will include interactive discussions and one-on-one fireside chat opportunities for students to engage U.S. university admissions recruiters, EducationUSA advisors, and U.S. Embassy officials.

From their individual booths, US institutions of higher education will give information on admissions and scholarship opportunities. Additionally, the program will feature information sessions on the F-1 student visa process.

The fairs will also provide students with an opportunity to learn firsthand from testing services on the SAT and banking representatives on financial options.
