French Ger­man ed­u­ca­tional fair un­der­way

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Ben Gar­cia

KUWAIT: A two-day French Ger­man ed­u­ca­tional fair kicked off yes­ter­day at the Ar­raya Cen­ter in Sharq, with the at­ten­dance of French Am­bas­sador Chris­tian Nakhle and a se­nior diplo­mat from the Ger­man Em­bassy in Kuwait. Par­ents and stu­dents from var­i­ous schools at­tended the open­ing cer­e­mony along with their men­tors to learn more about the best schools for higher stud­ies. One Ger­man and two French uni­ver­si­ties are par­tic­i­pat­ing in the fair.

French Ed­u­ca­tion At­tache Fran­cois Pradal said the French-Ger­man ed­u­ca­tion and cul­tural fair was or­ga­nized to en­cour­age more Kuwaitis and other na­tion­als to study in th­ese two Euro­pean coun­tries. “We have high-qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion in Europe - the sys­tem is sim­i­lar if not bet­ter than in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. We have ex­cel­lent ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties and the en­vi­ron­ment is re­ally great. We also have the most af­ford­able tu­ition fees and the value of ed­u­ca­tion is ex­cep­tional, so we want to en­cour­age Kuwaitis to con­sider France,” Pradal noted.

Cur­rently, France hosts about 300 Kuwaiti stu­dents. There are a few French stu­dents tak­ing Ara­bic cour­ses at Kuwaiti uni­ver­si­ties as well. “An agree­ment will be signed be­tween Kuwait Univer­sity and French Univer­sity in the com­ing weeks for an ex­change of stu­dents. This is nec­es­sary to im­prove our ed­u­ca­tional co­op­er­a­tion,” he added. The two-day ed­u­ca­tional fair also high­lights French and Ger­man mu­sic and food, along with an ex­hi­bi­tion of pho­to­graphs from var­i­ous schools in France and Ger­many.
