College Day is the largest American university fair in Europe. Held in partnership with University of South Florida, the event is taking place on 23 & 24 September at the ILEC Conference Centre in central London.
The UK sends more students to the US than any other country in Europe (Open Doors 2015, IIE), and attendance at College Day has grown dramatically over the past few years. There were 4,700 attendees in 2015, and we are already predicting large crowds again this year, with over 5,000 registered a week before the event.
The US-UK Fulbright Commission is proud to announce the American scholars of its 2016-17 cohort. During this academic cycle, 91 American scholars will be coming to the UK on exchange to study, lecture and/or research. Their expertise covers a diverse range, including immigration, cyber security, race relations, political journalism, human rights and radicalisation.
The US-UK Fulbright Commission is delighted to announce the appointment of Sir Nigel Sheinwald as Chairman of their board of Commissioners. He will take up the role on 1 September 2016 for a three-year term.
At College Day you will have the opportunity to speak with over 170 exhibitors representing universities in the US and educational service providers. Now in its 39th year, College Day is the largest American university fair in the UK.
If you did not receive a place at a UK university, you may be interested in other options such as studying or working abroad.
