Student Exchange Fair

APU students who previously went on exchange, students from partner universities currently studying at APU, and partner university exchange coordinators attend the Student Exchange Fair and represent their universities at booths.
The fair will be held in 2 sessions, giving you the opportunity to learn everything you want to know about the exchange program in the “quickest” way possible!! You can visit the booths of over 30 partner universities in each session, easily ask faculty and staff members for advice, and talk directly with students from partner universities!
This is your opportunity to ask all the questions you have about the exchange program, including the strengths of each university, the courses offered, the learning environment, and what life is like in that country.
