British Council holds first EDUKEX fair in Jordan

September 27, 2013

Twenty-nine universities from the UK participated in the first Education UK Exhibition (EDUKEX), an event showcasing the extensive number of courses and higher education institutions available to Jordanian students seeking to study in the UK.



Organised by the British Council, the exhibition was attended by over 700 Jordanian students, giving them an opportunity to meet and interact with representatives from some of the UK‘s top universities, many of whom had locally based agents with them in support.

“The British educational system is recognised as one of the best in the world and provides students from every corner of the globe with the opportunity to gain qualifications that will kick start their careers and give them the tools to contribute positively to the growth and development of their home countries,” said British Council Jordan Director, Robin Rickard.

“This is the first time we held this exhibition in the Kingdom [of Jordan] and the number of people who attended demonstrated the strong appeal there is in Jordan to study in the UK and gain a higher education that is respected and valued worldwide,” he added.

Guidance and information was given to all visitors at the exhibition who were looking to study in the UK, including details about degree courses, the application process, important deadlines and entry requirements. Sessions were also held at the exhibition to provide students with information about the Ielts English proficiency test, English language development and other vital entry requirements.

EDUKEX is part of the British Council Services for International Education Marketing which delivers a set of seven tailored and standard services to cater to the international marketing needs of UK educational institutions.
