The week-long program will include a series of activities including student recruitment fairs, agent workshops, information seminars, market and visa briefing, as well as tentative partnership forums or roundtable meetings. A networking event hosted by the Consul General will also be organized in Ho Chi Minh City. Highlights of the week are the two education fairs taking place in Hanoi (October 5) and Ho Chi Minh City (October 11).

67 institutions from 7 provinces from across Canada participated in the 5th Annual Canada Education Week (CEW) in 2013. Canadian institutions had direct access to close to 2,000 visitors at three education fairs in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Can Tho City, participated in institution-agent meetings, market opportunity briefing, briefing by the international development officer, visa briefings for clients and agents, and networked with key Vietnamese education contacts.

Results from our client survey indicated that clients found the Canada Education Week either "excellent" or "very good" and that they would return for future Canada Education Weeks.

The Canada Education Week is proving to be an important tool in branding Canada as the destination of choice for Vietnamese students looking to study abroad. It has also become one of the largest education fairs organized by the Government of Canada.

Note: Canadian institutions should not take the fairs as the only channels to recruit students as other marketing activities should be implemented as well to achieve objectives.
