+ International Education Fair Vietnam - Event Description

The International Education Fair in Vietnam brings you face to face with thousands of students who are actively looking for study abroad opportunities. 

This event is being supported and and organized in partnership with the state-owned education agency 'Centre for International Education Consultancy' (part of the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training). Cities and events can be booked separately. You can also book the entire tour. Please see the registration section for details

Traditional education fairs
The education fairs in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi have a classic exhibitor booth set up and bring you into contact with thousands of graduating students who are looking for international traineeships, bachelor, master, LLM, MBA and graduate studies abroad. The timing of the International Education Fair in Vietnam is in line with the country's educational agenda. 

High school fairs
The high school visits program has been designed for institutions exclusively looking to recruit students for their international college and bachelor/undergrad programs abroad. You will be visiting the leading private and international schools in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh. These exclusive schools have been carefully selected for their quality curriculum and their enthusiasm to proactively prepare their students for studying abroad.

Role of parents in the decision-making
While both parents and students are involved in the decision-making process, parents – as providers of financial support - tend be more influential in the choice of country; students, however, are more influential in the choice of institution and subject. Successful recruitment in Vietnam is about convincing parents. In our marketing campaigns, we target parents extensively. 

Student recruitment in Vietnam
Recruiting students from Vietnam has taken a flight over the past few years. With a population of 95 million, about 60% of which is below the age of 35, Vietnam represents the top marketplace for student recruitment for overseas High Schools, International Learning Institutions, Language Schools, Technical Schools, Colleges, and Universities.

Due to the stability of Vietnam’s economic and political system the number of Vietnamese students going abroad to study increased by about 30% since 2012. According to the latest UNESCO study abroad data, a total number of 94,662 students are currently studying abroad for a tertiary degree. Although the US and Australia are market leaders, countries in Europe and Asia have been gaining ground as a result of increased recruitment acitivities in Vietnam.
