EducationUSA Dakar

EducationUSA Dakar, at the U.S. Embassy, provides accurate, current and comprehensive educational advising services to prospective students. In the last year, over 8000 prospective students came to the Embassy to explore ways to study in the US. EducationUSA Dakar helps students find colleges and universities, provides information on various entrance examinations, admission requirements and financial planning. Besides the one-on-one information sessions, EducationUSA Dakar organizes monthly orientation sessions; participates in career fairs and school cultural activities. We also maintain a small library of books on American education in the American Information Center’s library where advisees have free access to internet for college/University search.
