Russia Virtual Education Fair

July 17, 2012

Are you interested in an excellent opportunity to recruit international students from Russia? How would you like to recruit without ever setting foot on a plane?

Participants will be given a low cost opportunity to introduce their school to education agents in Russia.

Join a unique, virtual opportunity to introduce accredited U.S. 2- and 4-year colleges and universities to pre-qualified Russian international student recruitment agencies.

The U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce is organizing this event that will be held on the morning of July 17, 2012 (the evening of July 17, 2012, in Russia).

Only six (6) participants will be showcased per event from those educational institutions that express interest. These institutions will present their school to potential Russian student recruitment partners through a live Internet-Conference Call connection from their office or home.

The cost to participate is $650, which is a fraction of the cost of traveling to Russia to introduce your institution. Deadline for registering is June 15 (note: may sell out earlier).

Upon receipt of institutional information, the U.S. Commercial Service will review your academic program offerings, accreditations, etc. to ensure an appropriate match for the generic needs of the Russian students.

If selected to participate we will contact you regarding the required registration and to assist in making payment by credit card.

Once payment is fulfilled, we will send you the conference call and webinar participation information, along with dates and times for the web-based training programs.

If you are not chosen to participate, you will be notified by Joan Kanlian who will explain why your institution was not chosen to participate in this event.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Joan Kanlian at Joan.Kanlian@trade.gov or (914) 682-6712.
