October 04, 2017

LONDON: The London-based education networking company, Gulf Conferences Ltd., has unveiled its aims and objectives for its third World Student Scholarship Education Program (WSSEP) scheduled to be held at the Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, on Oct. 22-23.

Some 100 heads of scholarships and key decision makers from the public, private and government sectors responsible for sending students abroad to the universities in the UK, the US, Malaysia, New Zealand and elsewhere in Europe, and also internally within the Gulf countries such as the UAE would be invited to engage in one-to-one meetings with educational providers and suppliers from different organizations, institutions, and companies, the organizers of the event say.

The event would explore newer opportunities in the scholarship scheme with a view to identify courses that can help countries to cater to their own market requirements.

The WSSEP, CEO Gulf Conferences, Mohammad Abdulkhalig, said would be an ideal platform to enable governments to have a one-to-one interaction with the educators about the programs as per their market needs rather than just the traditional courses or programs.

“With some 5000 universities and schools having enjoyed networking and proper debate within Gulf Education and Gulf Conferences umbrella, we’ve an experience of over 10 years in the scholarship programs dedicated via more than 80 ministries and governments around the globe,” Abdulkhalig said.

The World Student Scholarship Education Program was inspired by the King Abdullah Scholarship Program (KASP) in Saudi Arabia.

“It is an exclusive platform for delegates to create valuable contacts, generate new business, develop partnerships and discuss future scholarship positions,” Abdulkhalig said. — SG
