Empowering Students and Parents through the Global University Fair
The Global University Fair created an exceptional opportunity for students to engage directly with university representatives.
Education plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of students, and one of the essential tools in this journey is the Global University Fair. These fairs offer a multitude of advantages to both students and parents, acting as a bridge to higher education opportunities. By bringing together educational institutions from around the world, they allow students to explore a wide array of academic programs, campuses, and cultures. This exposure equips students with the knowledge they need to make well-informed decisions about their future education.

It witnessed the participation of more than 55 world-class universities and drew the attendance of approximately 525 students and parents from various schools in Visakhapatnam.
