A statement issued by the Australian Trade Commission in West Africa on Monday said the fair, which was a sign of confidence in the future of the Ghanaian economy, would be held on Wednesday, September 23.
“The ‘exhibition will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about the opportunities an Australian education presents and also to hear from a number of leading Australian education institutions.
“For years many students from Ghana have chosen to study in Australia due to the future opportunities that an Australian education opens up for them,” the statement said.
The statement quoted Gordon Chakaodza, the Australian Trade Commissioner as saying, “Australia has a strong track record of innovation and success and also the home to some of the world’s leading educational institutions, researchers and academics – including 15 Nobel Prize winners.”
Mr Chakaodza said for students who were interested in studying in Australia, the Exhibition 2015′ would provide an excellent opportunity to discuss their study plans directly with representatives of 17 of Australia’s leading education institutions.
Organized by the Australian Trade Commission in West Africa, the fair would be the first exhibition presented by the Australian Government in the sub-region and would involve seminars on Australia’s education system, student visa requirements and living in Australia.
