Endorsed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Study Texas is an educational consortium in the Texas that connects international students, professionals, and governmental entities with quality education and training opportunities.
At the 2018 Gulf Conference at Jeddah on 20-21 February, Texas State University will represent Study Texas. “Texas State's 38,000 students choose from 98 bachelor’s, 91 master’s and 13 doctoral degree programs,” Rosario Davis, Associate Director Texas State University, said. “Texas’ private and public accredited universities, four-year colleges, and community colleges offer thousands of degrees, affordable tuition, and low cost of living.”
As an Emerging Research University, Texas State University, Davis said, offers opportunities for discovery, research and innovation to faculty and students. “Texas is considered one of the most welcoming and hospitable destinations for international students with its rapidly growing private sector, oil and gas industry, and technology sector,” he said. “With historic connections to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and over 300 days per year of sunshine, students from the MENA always feel at home in the State of Texas.”
The two-day Gulf Education Conference is committed to supporting global education programs through student recruitment as well as facilitating partnerships between international institutions, academies, schools, and universities with Ministries of Education from the MENA region.
