Forum on Study Abroad in Rabat attracts over 20,000 visitors

The second edition of the Study Abroad Forum, organised by the "Moroccan Student" group from 18 to 20 January, attracted more than 20,000 visitors to Rabat, before moving on to Casablanca. This annual event brought together several national and international universities and grandes écoles. It offered baccalaureate holders a unique opportunity to find out about the possibilities of studying abroad, as well as the necessary steps to take, such as applying for visas and scholarships.

Kaoutar Abdallaoui, head of sales for the "Moroccan Student Group", stressed the importance of this forum in presenting the range of courses available and helping baccalaureate holders make their study choices. A number of universities, including Italian ones taking part for the first time, presented high-quality courses in a range of disciplines.

Najate Es Sadeqy, head of the Uni-Italia Maroc association, mentioned the participation of 13 Italian universities through the association, founded in 2010 by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Italian International Cooperation, in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation and the Ministry of the Interior. The aim is to attract more Moroccan students to Italian universities.

The forum, which has brought together institutions from over 15 countries, will be held in several cities across the Kingdom, including Meknes, Laâyoune, Dakhla, Marrakech, Fès, Béni Mellal, Tangiers, Agadir and Oujda.
