Education Abroad Fair
October 7th and October 8th, 2013
10 AM - 3 PM
The University of Georgia's 29th Annual Study, Work, and Travel Abroad Fair will play host to over 75 programs that include UGA faculty-led programs, external program providers, and organizations involved in international education. These programs will provide information on upcoming study abroad programs which include program dates, academic information, program cost, and other pertinent information. This 2 day fair is a great opportunity for program providers to market their programs to students and for students to learn more about study abroad opportunities.
UGA PROGRAMS AND EXTERNAL PROVIDERS:
In 2012, we had nearly 2000 UGA students attend our 2 day fair in the Grand Hall of the Tate Student Center. In 2013, we are hoping for more! You don't want to miss out on this great opportunity to market your programs!
Each program has the opportunity to set up a table with pictures, brochures, and other promotional materials. Registration will be online and will open on June 3rd, 2013. A link to registration will be sent out to last year's fair participants. If you were not able to attend the fair last year and are interested in registering for the 2013 fair, please contact Laura Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org
