Interview with Dr. Valerie Lindsay, Director of Graduate Programs, American Univeristy of Sharjah.
The Gulf Education and Training Exhibition (GETEX) is the region’s oldest education led event, supported by the UAE Ministry of Education, KHDA and the Knowledge Fund. This is the place where the finest education institutes and professional training providers get the opportunity to interact with the next batch of aspiring students.
Every year, the exhibition attracts over 35,000 local and expatriate students who are at the threshold of college life and actively looking for higher education, professional development and training options. Previous editions have hosted over 370 leading educational and vocational establishments from 40 different countries.
Held alongside the exhibition, The GETEX Counsellors Forum offers panel discussions to facilitate an exchange of ideas, allowing education providers to make a strong case for their admission procedures, quality of academics and their faculties. The focus, as always, is on general education, residential schools,under and post-graduate education, as well as training and skills development for professionals.
