Needham, MA (PRWEB) September 09, 2013 - CollegeWeekLive, the world's leading website for connecting students with colleges, invites students from across the United States to CollegeWeekLive International Universities Day, a complimentary event to be held live online Tuesday, September 10th from 12 to 8 PM EDT. The completely virtual event provides domestic students who may be interested in studying abroad an opportunity to learn about opportunities to attend college abroad for the entirety of their higher education.
For many students, the idea of attending college outside of the United States sounds appealing, but it is not always easy to learn about opportunities to complete a college education in another country. In fact, attending college abroad can be a great option for students who know what they want to major in, and at many international higher education institutions, a Bachelor's degree may be completed in three years and a Master's in four years.
"This live video event will help students decide if attending college abroad is right for them," said Robert Rosenbloom, President and CEO of CollegeWeekLive. "Unless your parents are expatriates, you are unlikely to be exposed to opportunities to study outside of the U.S., but many of these institutions are the most respected universities in the world. CollegeWeekLive provides a perfect opportunity to chat live with admissions representatives and find out if it is a fit for you."
Teens attending will be able chat live with universities around the world, gain advice from study abroad experts, and video chat with current students earning their degree abroad to hear about their experiences. As an additional incentive, students who log in and browse or chat with three or more colleges during the event will be automatically entered into a drawing for a $1,000 CollegeWeekLive scholarship.
