The Annual Canadian Education Spring Fairs in Vietnam are organized by Canadian Education International (CEI-Vietnam). The Fairs are organized in the 3 main cities in the central, north and south regions of Vietnam and attract over 4,000 visitors in total. These fairs provide the opportunities to recruit Vietnamese students for the Fall and Spring intakes.  For further information please contact ngoc.nguyen@canada-edu.org 


WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE

Vietnam remains an important recruitment market, with outbound mobility growing significantly over the past few years. With steady growth in both the number of students arriving from Vietnam and the size of the economy, Vietnam looks set to continue as a strong growth market. Vietnam’s economic development will also enable parents from its growing middle and upper classes to send their children to study overseas at a younger age. In 2017, the number of Vietnamese students reached over 14,000, doubling the previous year, making Vietnam the 5th largest source country for Canada.
