We look forward to seeing you at GHEDEX 2018!

Interested in studying in the United States?  Come visit us at GHEDEX, the Global Higher Education Exhibition, being held April 16-18 at the Oman Convention Center.  U.S. Embassy members will be available at our EducationUSA booth to answer questions about applying for U.S. colleges and universities, the student visa process, and living and studying in the United States.

Ghedex is also a fantastic opportunity to speak directly with representatives from 16 U.S. universities:

More than 1 million international students attend U.S. colleges and universities, and the number continues to increase each year.  Nearly 3,000 Omanis studied in the United States during the 2016-2017 school year, according to the most recent figures from the 2017 Open Doors Report on International Education Exchange.

U.S. higher education institutions are known worldwide for the quality of their programs, faculty, and facilities.  With more than 4,500 nationally and regionally accredited institutions in the United States, international students have many choices regarding the institution type and location that is the best fit for them and where they will thrive and reach their academic and long-term goals.  U.S. institutions welcome international students because they bring diverse perspectives and experiences to campus to share with their classmates and community.
