GETEX 2015 – Platform for education providers aims to make a strong case for their universities and colleges to attract students

GETEX Counsellors Forum to provide networking opportunities to student and career counsellors
Dubai, UAE, March 18th, 2015 – With the abundance of higher education and training options from around the world available at GETEX, making the right choice can be a nerve-racking experience for students. The assistance of student and career counsellors at this juncture of a student’s life is crucial.  Education providers, on the other hand, realize the importance of keeping the lines of communication open and look for opportunities to keep career counsellors in the loop.

Recognising the importance of this three-way relationship, the Counsellors Forum will be hosted at the region’s leading education fair, the Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX), for over 100 student and career counsellors providing them the opportunity to network with universities from around the world on a student recruitment platform. The forum will enable counsellors to learn more about the academic and occupational programs being offered to post-high school students from the region. Additionally, a series of panel discussions will facilitate the exchange of ideas where education providers will have an opportunity to elaborate on the quality of their program offerings, faculty, admission procedures, fee structure, and campus facilities.
Anselm Godinho, Managing Director, International Conferences and Exhibitions (IC&E), organizer of GETEX 2015, said: “The GETEX Counsellors Forum is a unique extension of GETEX. It is the first of its kind in the region and attracts counsellors from across the UAE and beyond. Career Counsellors need a platform to exchange ideas and experiences,and discuss trends that would serve to be useful to their students. We are extremely appreciative of the support we received from Murdoch University as Head Sponsor and Counselling Point as the forum’s Moderator.”
Held under the patronage of the UAE Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research, the 27th edition of GETEX will take place from April 15 to 17, 2015 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center and onward to the Beach Rotana in Abu Dhabi from April 22 to 24, 2015.
