Carfax Consultants would like to bring to your attention a worthwhile event in London related to US higher education: The Fulbright Commission’s USA College Day Fair, this September 25-26, 2015.
For close to 40 years the Fulbright Commission, which is partially funded by the US government, has brought together a large number of American universities under one roof. The commission’s aim through this fair is to help students and their families in Britain familiarize themselves with American universities and their liberal arts curriculum. Indeed, the fair serves as an excellent opportunity for students and their families to engage directly with representatives from some of America’s leading universities (including those from the Ivy League and University of California system).
We are happy to announce that Carfax Consultants will have a stand at this year’s event. We will be on hand to answer questions and offer general advice on all matters related to the American university application process. We would also be available to schedule more in depth consultations for October and November.
The fair’s popularity is clear: last year alone over more than 4,500 people attended Fulbright’s College Day Fair. Similar numbers are envisioned for this year’s fair. Accordingly, if you are interested in the event, we would strongly recommend that you register your participation as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you at College Day!
