Join Our Live Video Event As We Visit Valencia College

Posted on October 13th, 2017 by Rachel Rollins

Join our live video event as we visit Valencia College at their campus in Orlando, Florida on Friday, October 20th 2017. 

In this free event you’ll have the opportunity to ask your questions to Talia, the Director of the International Student Office. You’ll also meet May, a current international student at Valencia College from Brazil.

Life In Orlando, Florida

Not only will you be able to ask questions during the event, but you will also learn why many international students choose to study at Valencia College. For starters, Valencia College is located where the sun shines year-round and fun is just around the corner. Orlando is home to theme parks such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. When you’re not riding rollercoasters at Universal’s Harry Potter World, you can enjoy sporting events like an Orlando Magic basketball game or an Orlando City soccer game. There’s also tons of live music events, shopping, clubs and food you can enjoy!

Low Tuition Cost

On top of all that, Valencia was named the “best community college in the nation” by the Aspen Institute. One of the reasons why Valencia College received this recognition is because of their low tuition cost. International students at Valencia College pay 40% less than at a Florida public university. In fact, 90% of Valencia’s international students choose to study here because of the low cost. Valencia also offers many scholarships just for their international students.

Two-Year Degree

During the event you will also learn what an A.A. degree is. Valencia College primarily offers two-year associate degree programs. After graduation, those first two years count towards your bachelor’s degree. Many people choose to study at a community college because it prepares them better for a four-year college. For students that study at Valencia it guarantees that they will be accepted into a four-year Florida school. This can be a good choice for you if you think you might need extra help your first few years in college. Later you can apply want to a top-tier university that would normally be harder to apply for.

Now that we’ve gotten your attention, it’s time for you to mark your calendar for our live-video event with Valencia College!
