Do not miss this year’s GO Global Education Fair,
being held in the Netherlands on September 22 and 23, 2018!
Our Fairs are a great opportunity for exhibitors to meet European students and their families interested in an educational experience in North America. This year we are expecting around 1,000 visitors.

Our exhibitors will meet and chat with approximately 1,000 visitors over two fair days. Our fairs attract a broad range of North American schools, from high and college prep schools, to specialized sport academies, community colleges, private liberal arts schools, and Ivy Leagues. Previous exhibitors have provided the following feedback about our fairs:
Exhibitors are represented either by international student recruiters, or by Dutch alumni and/or their parents. We certainly welcome staff members to attend in person as it adds a personal face to the school, and there is no one better to answer questions from curious visitors. However, if schedules and/or budget does not allow this, we strongly encourage finding an alumnus representative. Our visitors respond well to a ‘peer’ who can share their personal experience and stories in their native language.
Dutch students are academically strong and possess an international outlook. Our effective and dynamic education system is accessible to all ability levels, teaches English as a second language starting at age 10, and produces top scorers on the TOEFL/IELTS worldwide. We also pride ourselves on strong transatlantic ties, not just historically, politically, and economically but also culturally. More than half a million Dutch tourists visit North America annually, making it the number one travel destination outside of Europe.
While the total number of international students at American institutions continues to decline, the number of Dutch students studying in the US steadily rises, and increased by 62 percent between 2006 and 2017 to over 2,500! The Dutch government and universities encourage students to gain educational experiences abroad and facilitates this by letting them secure government grants to obtain a college degree in the US or Canada. This makes US or Canadian study possible for all students!
All fair presentations are FREE for visitors. We are working diligently to finalize our presentations for this year. Also, view the locations and see which other American and Canadian schools will be exhibiting this year.
Our yearly Information Booklet serves as a great resource for interested students and their families. Filled with lots of interesting articles, student interviews, and general information, UStudy and GUTS hand out this information booklet throughout the year, reaching thousands of interested students and parents. Did you know that we offer advertisement pages as well? See options below.
UStudy offers numerous options, varying in price for Partner Schools and non-Partner schools. Our UStudy Partner Schools enjoy a generous discount for the fairs, as well as priority referrals for our students and student-athletes, logo visibility on various pages of our website, and more!

In the event you are unable to send a representative from your institution, please keep in mind alumni make great representatives!
If you are having trouble finding a representative, please let us know. We have a database with alumni, who we could ask to represent your institution at the GO Global Education Fair 2018. We have succesfully done so with past exhibitors and having local alumni worked particularly well for many exhibitors in terms of yield and supplying information to families.
