VETEC-U.S. Education Center held a lively briefing session with East Los Angeles College on June 21st. Vi Ly, Dean of Student Affairs at East Los Angeles College(ELAC), provided a detailed briefing about opportunities to study at a U.S. Community College and the advantages of 2+2 pathways at leading California and U.S. universities. Students who were unable to attend the June 21st event are encouraged to contact VETEC to learn about study opportunities at ELAC and how to qualify for a special international scholarship available when applying through VETEC.
VETEC hosted a U.S. Study Fair on November 2nd that included participation from 8 U.S. schools coming from California, Illinois, Missouri and Washington State. The fair drew a strong turnout with more than 150 students and parents attending the four hour event. The participating schools were very pleased with the quality of the student attendees and expect that a number of the students they met with will apply for admission as early as Spring 2014. VETEC plans to build on the momentum of the VETEC Student Fair and other Fall promotion activities by hosting a set of high-impact marketing events in Spring 2014. U.S. schools are encouraged to consider participating in the March events planned in Can Tho and HCMC to begin or jump starting recruitment efforts in Vietnam.
