Destination of Honour: Hong Kong

This autumn, the Vietnam Global Education Fairs, in partnership with Study In Hong Kong, are proud to announce our Destination of Honour as: Hong Kong

As the region’s main hub for world-class education, Hong Kong continues to adopt global standards into its university education design, while producing a steady roster of culturally diverse and competent graduates who are making their global dreams come true.

Students around the world are discovering that world-class education does not only reside in the popular Western corners of the globe. In Asia, Hong Kong stands out as a competitive resource of globally esteemed talent, sought-after for their world-ready capabilities.

Hong Kong is home to Asia’s highest ranked universities, including eight government-funded universities: City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University, Lingnan University, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Education University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and The University of Hong Kong. In the latest QS University Rankings, five of them are ranked in the world’s top 100 (2020) and three are ranked in Asia’s top 10 (2019), showcasing Hong Kong’s academic competitiveness on the global stage.

Country of Distinction: India

At the Vietnam Global Education Fairs, make sure to visit the institutions of the 3rd largest higher education system in the world, India.

A rising economic power, the Indian economy is ranked sixth in the world and is home to Fortune 500 companies such as Indian Oil, Reliance Industries and State Bank of India (SBI), alongside a thriving start-up scene.

While Engineering has been the flag bearer of India’s higher education, Indian universities are offering a host of courses in areas where graduates are required, as well as more niche programmes. Additionally, the chief language of instruction is English, an incredibly beneficial language to master.

India also has a rich culture and beautiful landscape that ranges from the Great Himalayas to the rocks of Kanyakumari. If you are looking to experience art, history, innovation and creativity and be part of a dynamic education system, India is the place to be!

Official Country Group: Romania

The Official Country Group of this edition of the Vietnam Global Education Fairs will be: Romania.

Located at the crossroads of Central and Eastern Europe, Romania is reminiscent of a fairy tale with its medieval castles, wild forests and picturesque villages. It is also known for its rich academic heritage offering state-of-the-art facilities, modern research opportunities and high quality of life, all for some of the lowest tuition and living costs in the European Union.
