French education fair welcomes thousands of visitors in major Vietnamese cities
The exhibition held on October 10, 2015 at Rex Hotel in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City featured representatives from 27 schools from France.

An exhibition on French education attracted thousands of students in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi over the weekend.

The “Bienvenue en France” (Welcome to France) expo took place in the southern Vietnamese hub on October 10 at Rex Hotel in District 1, and in the capital city on October 11 at Pullman Hotel in Dong Da District.

The event introduced the quality and diversity of French higher education to the Vietnamese public, featuring representatives from 27 schools including universities, engineering schools, business schools, and other specialized institutions.

Visitors were invited to attend seminars which helped to prepare them for a stay in France and gave advice on how to overcome cultural shock, complete visa procedures and administrative tasks, as well as find scholarship opportunities.

Applicants to study in France could have a 20-minute individual interview with the representative of the institution of their choice, as well as the opportunity to ask for further information at the school’s booth.

The expo also featured an additional area which introduced French cultural characteristics, books, fashion, tourism, gastronomy, innovation, and many other fields representing the Western European country.
