The Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX), the region’s leading student recruitment event, is all set to open its doors in Dubai this year, offering new learning initiatives and covering a wider scope of courses to help address the 21st century needs of the region’s ever evolving job market.
To be held from April 13 to 15, 2017 at the Sheikh Saeed Halls of the Dubai International Convention Centre, GETEX will showcase more than 2,000 multidisciplinary undergraduate, postgraduate, and training courses along with a wide array of key activities such as student and career counseling sessions, financial advice, and career-oriented seminars to be hosted by academic and industry experts.
Moreover, the event will put the spotlight on at least 250 master and doctorate degree programs in the fields of international business, economics, humanities and social sciences, law, medicine and vet science, nanotechnology, criminology, food safety, and maritime technology, to name a few. Industry-ready courses in key sectors such as aviation, information technology, gaming, teaching, nursing, architecture, and hospitality will be highlighted as well.
Anselm Godinho, Managing Director of International Conferences and Exhibitions, the organizer of GETEX, said: “GETEX comes at a time when investment in education is at its all time high across the Arab World. Many regional governments are now prioritizing and heavily investing in education infrastructure as part of their transition towards a knowledge- and innovation-driven economy. We hope to contribute to this growth by providing a global platform where all stakeholders can get a buy-in from end users and advance their education offerings to address regional trends.”
This edition of GETEX will provide a smart and interactive recruitment platform connecting educational institutions and professional training providers with young and mature learners, in addition to free seminars addressing a range of pertinent student issues and interactive learning sessions allowing visitors to engage and learn from education experts.
University representatives from Canada, Egypt, India, Lebanon, Malaysia, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, the UK, and the US will be present in the event. Some of the participating institutions include the American University in Dubai; Paris Sorbonne University, Abu Dhabi; Middlesex University Dubai; Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine & Health Sciences; UAE University; Zayed University; Higher Colleges of Technology, International Oxford Royale Academy – UK; IOB Insitut Osteopathie Bordeaux – France; and International Business School – Hungary.
