EducationUSA Malaysia hosted two US education fairs in Penang and Kuala Lumpur on February 18 and 19. These were by far the largest US education fairs hosted by EducationUSA Malaysia, with 53 US universities in attendance in Kuala Lumpur and 32 universities represented at the Penang fair.
Over 1,200 fair participants in Penang and Kuala Lumpur met with different US institutions such as public, private and liberal arts colleges. Students and parents also had a chance to attend several speaking sessions throughout the fair detailing specific aspects of the US education system and application process. And consular officials from the Embassy presented information about the student visa application process.
University representatives said they were happy with the quality of the students they met, noting the genuine interest to study in the US from participants of varying educational backgrounds. Some universities even received completed applications at the fair!
