Overwhelming response to Jaffna Education Fair
The first ever large-scale education exhibition in the North will be held on September 15 and 16 at the Jaffna Central College.
In addition to local educational institutions several foreign companies have shown tremendous interest to take part in the Fair. "All space was taken up within days of its launch with many on waiting lists wanting to be a part of this prime event," said Assistant General Manager, of Pico Events, Emile Gunesekera.
This event will showcase a large number of exhibitors who will provide students of the North the opportunity to advance their studies by obtaining internationally recognized qualifications within the country and overseas.
The enthusiasm has been great among the participating institutions to take their services to Jaffna.

They will also be provided with all relevant information to carry out further studies overseas. As students, they will be provided with the opportunity of choosing their avenues in studies.
