About the Program:

The U.S. Embassies in Australia and New Zealand are hosting the EducationUSA Universities EXPO 2016. There is no fee to participate in this public event, and we welcome admissions officers, alumni, and current students to represent their institutions.

EducationUSA Universities EXPO 2016 will feature a college fair and information sessions. The fair will have booths for university representatives and other organizations supporting study in the United States to engage with event participants and to share materials. The information seminars will cover a variety of topics, including the admissions process, finding the right fit, financial assistance, and sporting opportunities.

The U.S. Embassies are providing this opportunity to all accredited U.S. institutions of higher education to promote our country as the premier destination for Australasian students interested in international education.

This program has been created so that you can continue your regional travel to Japan for the Kanto Plains and EducationUSA Japan Fairs that take place later in the week. Please note that Monday, September 5 is Labor Day in America.
