Representatives from Australian and US universities and pathway providers have been accessible to meet students and parents and offer guidance on courses and admission specifications.
Speaking at the occasion, Claire Maatouk, manager, StudyCo, mentioned, “We organise this event twice a year. We feel it’s compulsory to have information available for students to help them prior to going abroad for their higher degrees. We’re giving them the opportunity to meet in person with representatives of universities so their options can be discussed. Many of them are sponsored by the Ministry of Higher Education in Oman, which we work closely with.”
She added, “It’s good to have this face to face. If you start the first year, and you’re not happy or not doing well, it will have an impact on the whole experience. Our sessions are usually in March-April and September-October. The Omani students’ associations in Australia are promoting this event on their social media, which is perhaps the best endorsement by Omanis who are currently in Australia.”
The participating Australian universities incorporated Monash University, University of Melbourne, RMIT University, University of Technology, Study Group, Deakin University-Deakin College, NAVITAS & SP Jain School of Global Management.
The US universities incorporated University of Central Florida, and Louisiana State University.
The Australian Agency for Higher Education Services was established in Oman in 2002, to help and counsel students wishing to study abroad.
The workplace offers free of charge help with internship, coaching, accommodation, all application and visa procedures.
