International Studentsí Day is an international observance of student community, held annually on November 17. Originally commemorating the Nazi German storming of Czech universities in 1939 and the subsequent killing and sending of students to concentration camps, a number of universities now mark it, sometimes on a day other than November 17, for a nonpolitical celebration of the multiculturalism of their international students.
International Education Week (IEW) (the dates for IEW 2016 are November 14-18, 2016) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of efforts to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
IEW was first held in 2000 and today itís celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide.
As International Education Week celebrations, the U.S. Department of State (a federal agency that issues visas at U.S. consulates and embassies, and offers student-specific information on its websites, the Department of State also manages the J visa programs within the United States) and U.S. Department of Education (a Department of State-supported network with over 400 advising centers in 170 countries that provide students with information to help them select a school in the United States) present International Students Day on November. This online college fair gives prospective international students around the world the opportunity to ask questions and learn about more than 150 colleges and universities in the United States. This is a great event to attend if you want to study in the United States.
