The fair brought together various institutions across the country that offer study abroad opportunities to tertiary students, travel and tour organizations and other organizations that provide goods and services to students seeking to further their studies abroad.
Addressing participants at the event, the Director of the Centre, Madam Jocelence Buckman noted that, the aim of the fair was to create an avenue for students to learn about various graduate schools abroad, courses, explore various scholarship opportunities and eligibility criteria for accessing those scholarships.
She said, students over the years have called for such a fair and this is a direct response to their request. She added that, the Centre has decided to organize this fair on a yearly basis.
"This event is going to be organized annually," she told participants at the first edition of the fair held at the Institute of Statistical Social and Economic Research (ISSER) conference room.
A representative from the International Programmes Office (IPO) at the University, encouraged students to take advantage of numerous opportunities that the office provide to them, especially those beyond first year and graduate students.
According to the rep, students do not have to defer their courses when going abroad for an exchange programme abroad.
The IPO rep mentioned that, among other benefits, students who partake in exchange programmes abroad experience new cultures and academic environment, make new friends, broaden their horizon/network and have new perspective on issues affecting Africa and the world as a whole.
Other institutions like PFL, Emirates, South Africa Airways, Campus France, Racus Ghana, Edugh Fair, GhScientic, among others were also present.
