2014 Canada Education Week in Vietnam

70 Canadian Institutions to Participate in 6th Annual Canadian Education Week in Vietnam

Hanoi - September 29, 2014 – The Embassy of Canada in Hanoi and the Consulate General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh City are pleased to announce the 2014 Canada Education Week, held from October 5 to 11, 2014, with 70 participating Canadian institutions. Highlights of the week are the fairs which are open to the public and will take place at the Melia Hotel in Hanoi on October 5 from 9:00am – 4:00pm, and at the Intercontinental Asiana Saigon Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City on October 11 from 9:00am – 4:00pm.

Representing the full range of education options, from kindergarten to Grade 12, language programs, all the way to college and university, these Canadian institutions are among the best in the world. This year, students will have the opportunity to meet with many of Canada’s leading universities like the University of British Columbia, the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, the University of Victoria, the University of Manitoba, the University of Saskatchewan, Concordia University, University of New Brunswick, Laurentian University, University of Guelph, and York University.

Canada spends more per capita on education than any other G8 country and welcomes more than 100,000 international students every year. Canada’s world-class educators, cutting-edge technology, competitive tuition fees, diverse population, and opportunities for international graduates to stay and work to gain international experience make Canada one of the best choices for prospective students. A recent survey says international students studying in Canada pay some of the lowest fees amongst Western developed nations; lower than Australia, the U.S., and the UK.

Students and families are encouraged to take this opportunity to meet directly with Canadian institutions’ representatives, learn about Canada’s education system and study options available, visa application process, and work opportunities for international students after graduation. A special seminar on applying for student visas will be led by a Canadian immigration official, aimed at providing the public with transparent and clear guidance on this topic of concern. Please visit the following website for the detailed program and list of participating institutions:


“The Embassy of Canada is once again very pleased to welcome some 70 Canadian educational institutions travelling to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to participate in the Canada Education Fairs in order to meet with parents and prospective studentsin Vietnam. Enhancing bilateral international education linkages is an important factor as we strive to build on our already strong Canada-Vietnam people to people linkages.”
- David Devine, Ambassador of Canada

“Our Education Team is looking forward to launching the 6th Annual Canada Education Week in Hanoi, joining outstanding Canadian educators here to recruit bright young Vietnamese to join Canada’s international student body.”
- Marcel Laneville, Senior Trade Commissioner, Canadian Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City.
