STUDYING abroad is just a tantalising dream for most high school pupils but is a real option for those with a record of academic, sporting or community service excellence – as an American educationist will outline in a talk in Port Elizabeth this evening.
Theodor Herzl High School is hosting EducationUSA representative Alice King for a talk to senior pupils and parents, and invites other genuinely interested pupils in Grades 10 to matric, students or academic staff (particularly guidance teachers) to attend the free information session too.
The presentation will be held from 6.30 to 8pm this evening in the Theodor Herzl School Hall, 14th Avenue, Walmer. Entrance is free but seats are limited so it is essential that places are booked by e-mailing Angela Kennedy at email@example.com
King has been involved in education for more than 25 years and has worked in the US, the United Kingdom and in South Africa. As an EducationUSA advisor, she guides and advises undergraduates and graduate students about study opportunities in the US.
King will discuss a variety of study opportunities in the United States, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and will outline five steps that will help turn the dream into reality for aspiring youngsters. She also will discuss various funding opportunities, as there are a number of programmes offered through the US embassy, as well as other international bodies who fund studies.
There will also be a question and answer session after her presentation.
