The fourth ‘GREAT Universities’ education fair returned to Ecuador in September 2016. Twenty of the UK’s best universities visited Guayaquil, Cuenca and Quito and met Ecuadorean students considering higher education options. This was a GREAT opportunity to find out more about the UK’s world-class universities and understand how to apply to universities in the United Kingdom.

At the fair in all cities, the British Embassy also launched the app StudyUK, available now in Apple store and Google play for free download. The app is a great source to get official information about how to study in the UK.

We take the opportunity to thank to the 5,000 asistants to the fair in all three cities, and all the education officers, teachers and authorities that supported this event.

The visiting universities were: Anglia Ruskin University; Brunel University London; Glasgow Caledonian University; Hult International Business School; King’s College London; Swansea University; The University of Edinburgh; The University of Manchester; The University of Northampton; The University of Nottingham; The University of Sheffield; The University of Warwick; University College London; University of Bristol; University of Glasgow; University of Leicester; University of Lincoln; University of Southampton; University of St. Andrews; University of Strathclyde.

The International House, EF and CEDEI offered advice about English language training options and IELTS exam preparation. Representatives of UK Visas and Immigration provided information about the visa application process.
