Students in Bahrain will get the opportunity to meet representatives from universities and colleges in the UK during an exhibition next week.
The Education UK Exhibition 2013 (Edukex), organised annually by the British Coucil, will take place in the Al Murjan Ballroom at the Movenpick Hotel on September 29 and 30, said a statement.
The exhibition will be held under the patronage of the British Ambassador, Iain Lindsay, Higher Education Secretary General Professor Riyadh Hamza and Andrew Glass, British Council Bahrain director.
