Australia’s First U.S. College Fair Draws More than 400 Students.

With the support of ConGen Sydney’s EducationUSA program, Ascham High School in Sydney hosted Australia’s very first U.S. college fair in March 2013. Consul General Niels Marquardt gave opening remarks at a packed auditorium to highlight the importance of study abroad and cross-cultural experience in developing career paths. Presentations included the differences between a U.S. and Australian undergraduate education, a presentation on sports scholarships and on the ACT test. EdUSA Advisers enlisted local graduates (both Australians and Americans) to host tables for their respective alma maters, resulting in the representation of 21 U.S. universities at the fair. This event, which attracted more than 400 students (an additional 200 were turned away due to lack of capacity), underscored the intense level of interest in opportunities to study in the United States.
