4th UK Education Fair


SpringBoard4Cambodia with the support of the British Embassy in Phnom Penh is holding the 4th UK Education Fair on 1 February 2012 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The Fair will be opened by the British Ambassador, HE Mr. Mark Gooding, and HE Mr. Pit Chamnan, Secretary of State, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Kingdom of Cambodia. 21 British educational institutions will take part in the Fair.
Commenting on the Fair, British Ambassador Mark Gooding said, “I am delighted that over 20 British universities and colleges are participating in this year’s UK Education Fair. The UK is world renowned for excellence in education and skills. UK universities and colleges have an outstanding reputation for their diversity, research and innovation. The UK has produced over 70 Nobel prize winners, and is home to four of the top ten universities in the world. That’s why nearly 400,000 students come to the UK from around the world to study each year. The Education Fair is a good opportunity for Cambodians students to find out what’s available, and how they can access the courses that best meet their needs.”
The objective of the Fair is to give Cambodian students information on higher educational opportunities in the United Kingdom. Participating British educational institutions reflect the UK’s renowned reputation for producing talent and nurturing its skills base. The UK is home to four of the world’s top universities, with over 70 Nobel Prizes under its belt and offers high quality courses for a range of employers.
The Fair will highlight the importance of education in a knowledge-based world, which demands a highly-skilled workforce to sustain, develop and diversify. During the Fair, members of the British Chevening Alumni Association of Cambodia, who have studied in the UK, will be available to share their great experiences of studying in the UK with other Cambodian students.

The Fair will also include international debating championship between students from the UK, Cambodia and Vietnam. This is the first international debating championship with participation of students from the UK. The debates will be participated by 6 overseas teams consisting of 18 international students from 10 different nationalities; 5 of the overseas teams are from London, Leeds, Sheffield and Bristol in the UK, and one from Vietnam.
