The China Education Expo provided visitors with an insight into the universities, colleges and high schools of nearly 40 countries and regions. Xing Wen reports.     

The 2017 China Education Expo, which toured Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Shanghai from Oct 21 to 29, attracted over 50,000 visitors, with the expo at the China National Convention Center in Beijing hosting the most, around 27,000 visitors.

Universities, colleges and high schools from nearly 40 countries and regions including the United States, Australia, Canada, Spain, Japan and Sweden had booths at the expo, which provided visitors with details about different universities, scholarships, tuition fees and living expenses.

"Although it's more effective to cooperate with high schools in recruiting qualified students, we can give students and parents more comprehensive information about our university through the expo," said Zhao Suping, the international relations manager and special adviser of University of Waterloo in Canada. "For example, I can introduce them to the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies in our university, which ranks high in the field all over the world yet isn't known by many Chinese students."

Among all the national pavilions, Canada's was the largest, with over 130 universities and colleges showcasing their programs, courses and curriculums.

As the Country of Honor for this year's expo, Canada promoted its international education brand "EduCanada: A World of Possibilities" and developed an app to present information about the education institutions featured in the expo.

Zhang Ke, the trade commissioner of the Canadian embassy, said staff from the visa office also showed up to answer questions about how to apply for student visas and work visas.
