The EducationUSA Advising Centre in Albania has participated at the first Art and Book Festival in Albania.

Volunteer students and advisers of the Advising Center have been giving information for 5 days about the applications procedures to study in the U.S.
During the event, we have provided information on main issues relevant to the public, i.e.: finding the appropriate studying institutions in USA, main admission requirements for a particular field of study, the list of testing requirements, possible sources for financial assistance, various application procedures, etc..

Many students and parents came at our booth to met EducationUSA advisers and receive first hand, free, and unbiased information about:

- How to define study your objectives and find appropriate institutions;
- Admissions requirements for study in a particular field;
- Testing requirements (TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, SAT, GED, ACT, etc.);
- Sources of financial assistance and scholarship opportunities;
- How to write a CV/ résumé, an Essay, Letter of inquiry, Letter of references, etc. for a successful application
- J. William Fulbright, Hubert H. Humphrey, and other exchange programs

During this event we have taken about 40 student’s contacts. 60% were interested for undergraduate programs. 35 % were interested in graduate level and 5 % were interested in Post-grad level, PhD program.

EdUSA Albania thanks the volunteer students: Eni Lazri, Joana Alla, Armora Rama, for providing information for the service’s center and taking contacts of the potential interested students.
