The U.S. Embassy is going to officially launch the AmCam Exchange at the Exchange Square near the embassy in early March.
The information was shared by U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. W. Patrick Murphy in a meeting here this morning with Cambodian Minister of Information H.E. Khieu Kanharith.
According to H.E. Ambassador, the AmCam Exchange will provide parents and students with information about studying in the U.S., like the EducationUSA centres established so far in partnership with the Pannasastra University of Cambodia (PUC).
Last month, the embassy inaugurated an EducationUSA Advising Centre at PUC in Siem Reap province. The centre also offers guidance on how to search for universities, scholarship opportunities, and U.S. government-sponsored programmes; and help with the application process.
There were already two EducationUSA centres in Cambodia, one in the American Centre at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh and another at PUC Phnom Penh.
The 2020 Open Doors report on International Education Exchange showed that 742 Cambodian students attended schools in the United States in 2019-2020, an 8 percent increase compared to the previous year.
It continued that the United States is the No. 1 destination in the world for international students, with more than 1 million of them studying there in 2019-2020.
