The Vancouver International Universities Fair (VIUF) will be held this coming April 30 at the Vancouver Convention Centre-East from 1pm-4pm (PDT). Registration for exhibitors and students is now open through the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) Fairs website.

VIUF is the product of collaboration between NACAC and International ACAC. The fair was established in 2016, where over 3,000 attendees connected with over 170 colleges and universities from 12 different countries. Watch the VIUF 2016 video to hear about the fair directly from students and admission officers.

Nancy Cromarty, VIUF committee chair and director of university counseling at West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver, has been working diligently with her team to ensure the success of this year’s fair. Over 110 colleges and universities from 10 different countries have already registered as exhibitors and participant attendance is expected to exceed that of last year. Make sure to visit the NACAC Fairs website regularly to see the growing list of exhibitors.

In addition to meeting with college and university representatives, attendees will have the opportunity to visit the resource center and counseling booth to speak with local counselors familiar with the varying international admission processes. They can also join any of the free information sessions that will be happening throughout the day ranging in topics from university admission processes in the US, Canada, and the UK to standardized testing and athletic recruitment. “Students, parents, and high school counsellors should take advantage of the incredible presentations that are being given on the day, which will fill up quickly.  Students in grades 9, 10 or 11—this event is for you,” said Nancy. More information about the fair, information sessions is available on the NACAC Fairs website.
