The Music and Dance School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague hosted an event organized by the US Commercial Service at the US embassies in The Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, in cooperation with EducationUSA and the Fulbright Commission on April 9th, 2014. During the three hours lasting fair students from all around The Czech Republic had the chance to meet representatives of regionally accredited U.S. institutions of higher education, both undergraduate and graduate, and receive information about issues such as the processes of application, immigration, or educational conventions in The United States. The list of universities that held their presentations at the fair included Bellevue College, Herzing University, New York Film Academy, Northeastern University, Oregon State University, or Washington University in St. Luis among others.
The fair took place on the premises of the Music and Dance School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (HAMU). The fair’s hosting institution was thus presented with a great opportunity to appear in the international context of the liberal arts education, beyond the scope of the music education only, by the side of large research universities from abroad.
