To mark International Education Week, the US Consulate in Cape Town kicked off their annual US College Fair on Monday.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s event is virtual and will run until Friday.
“Over 2,200 South African students are currently pursuing higher education in the US in top institutions, studying everything from molecular biology to international affairs.
“The US Mission in South Africa is committed to expanding resources for interested students and scholars in SA to study in the US, which will lead to jobs and partnerships,” said US Consulate media representative Nurahn Schoreder.
The fair had a special workshop each day.
On Monday, the theme was “Steps to study in the US”; on Tuesday, it was “English Testing” and on Wednesday, it was “Undergraduate Study”.
On Thursday, the workshop will be “Graduate Study” while Friday will discuss student visas and will be led by the US vice- consul RM Srivastava.
While registration for the live workshops has ended, they can still be viewed on the EducationUSA Africa Connection Facebook page.
