Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 8 / Trend T. Hajiyev /
The United States is widely regarded as the world leader in higher education and more foreign students study in the U.S. than in any other country. Young Azerbaijanis can learn about exciting possibilities to study in the United States at the "U.S. Education Fair" to be held on Sunday, October 10, 2010, from 1300 - 1600 at the American Center, located in the University of Languages at 60 Rashid Behbudov St.
Representatives of well-known American higher education institutions, among them the University of South Carolina, the University of Tulsa, State University of New York Plattsburg, Lynn University, Hult International Business School, and Bergen Community College, will attend the fair. Attendees of the fair will have the opportunity to speak with representatives and ask questions about study in the U.S. In addition, local and international organizations that facilitate study in the U.S - including the Baku Education Information Center, American Councils and IREX - will attend the fair and can answer questions about programs that provide opportunities to study in the U.S.
Indeed, increasing numbers of Azerbaijani youth have recognized the value of studying in the US in recent years. "Azerbaijani youth are seeking the best education opportunities and the United States offers world-renowned quality in higher education. In fact, the number of Azerbaijanis applying for visas to study in the United States has risen approximately 14 percent in each of the past two years," said Terry Davidson, the Public Affairs Officer at the United States Embassy in Baku.
