Colombo, Sri Lanka, September 26, 2017 – The High Commission of Canada in Sri Lanka will host an education fair in Colombo on October 3 to showcase Canada as a destination of choice for Sri Lankan students who are planning to pursue their higher education. Interested students and parents are invited to attend an information session on Tuesday October 3 2017 from 16:30 – 18:30 at Ozo Hotel Colombo 04.

The event will involve presentations on why Sri Lankan students should choose Canada as an education destination, scholarship opportunities, and on immigration requirements for studies in Canada.

The highlight of the event is the participation of eleven colleges and universities from across Canada that will be presenting on the multitude of programs on offer at their institutions. Prospective students will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with these organizations and find out about the best course of study for their needs. Students will also hear from Sri Lankan alumni of Canadian institutions, and from High Commission officials.

Chargé d'affaires of the High Commission of Canada to Sri Lanka, Jennifer Hart stated that ‘‘Canada offers some of the best educational institutions in the world - which is why it is increasingly a destination of choice for international students. Sri Lankan students considering studies abroad will have the opportunity to meet reps from some of these great institutions first hand to find out what it is that makes Canada stand out in terms of quality of education, quality of life, cost competiveness and a welcoming and diverse environment for students of all nationalities’’.

This information session is a part of a series of exciting activities marking Canadian Education Month in Sri Lanka, with visits by leading Canadian universities making their way to Colombo during the month of September.
