The biggest Education UK event of the year will take place in Hanoi on 8 October, Ho Chi Minh City on 9 October, and Danang on 11 October. The Education UK Exhibition 2016 offers students the chance to meet directly with representatives of nearly 70 UK schools and get to know about more than 80 valuable scholarship programmes.

With 78 Nobel prizes in the field of science and technology and with it ranked second in the world and the first in Europe – a UK education has always been a guarantee of quality and a dream for many people aspiring to learn and be successful.

To support this dream, the Education UK Exhibition – held annually by the British Council – is enjoying an increasingly positive response as well as attracting major participation from parents, pupils and students in Vietnam. 

To attend, you can register via the exhibition website or the Facebook page “Nuoc Anh trong mat toi” at https://www.facebook.com/NuocAnhTrongMatToi

Alongside the opportunity to meet directly with university representatives, Education UK Exhibition 2016 profiles UK university initiatives aimed at maximising student employability. For the first time, parents and students will get to know in detail how UK universities build relationships with enterprises and design creative programs for students. This helps students gain practical experience, as well as building up skills and relevant networks in preparation for future careers.

The side events and workshops have always been a special feature of the Education UK Exhibition. Parents can find useful information in the workshop ‘Financial planning for studying abroad from secondary level’. Meanwhile, students will have the opportunity to meet directly with excellent UK alumni through the workshop ‘Studying in the UK - the entry ticket to a future career’. 

The workshop will introduce two faces from Forbes’ ‘30 under 30’ list – these are Thi Anh Dao, CEO of Isobar Vietnam, and Mai Lan Van, co-founder of UP co-working space for start-ups and creative individuals. As the third guest speaker, chef Truong Quang Dung will share the amazing story of how he graduated with a BA in Economics (University of Exeter) and had two-years of experience working in the banking sector, but eventually decided to pursue his culinary passion by opening his restaurant ‘Gastro’ instead.

A workshop on the prestigious Chevening Scholarship from the British Embassy in Vietnam also promises to be popular as the application deadline for the academic year 2017-18 is near (November 8, 2016). Elsewhere students preparing for their IELTS exam won’t want to miss out on the ‘Tips for a high IELTS speaking score’ workshop from British Council experts.

Event attendees will also receive two special publications on Education UK, which are the latest edition of ‘Education UK Guide 2016’ and ‘The road to the UK is right beneath me’ - version 2016.

There’s even the chance to take a selfie at British Culture Corner with visual works inspired by famous Shakespeare quotes to mark the 400th anniversary of his death.
