EU Fair Invites Filipinos to Get Higher Education in EU

Education will always be a main priority for Filipinos. It gives them a sense of identity and achievement. And in a world that’s getting more and more connected, it pays to have a world–class higher education.
 
On the 10th of October 2018 at the Shangri–La Plaza, the European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) will open the European Union's doors to Filipino students looking to expand their horizons through postgraduate studies. Organized by the Delegation of the European Union to the Philippines, together with EU Member States’ Embassies and Cultural Groups, and in partnership with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), EHEF will feature universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) from EU member states. 
 
This year’s theme, “Sustaining Innovation and Excellence,” further promotes EU as a center of excellence and quality in higher education.  As EU Ambassador Franz Jessen noted during last year’s fair, universities and higher education institutions in EU offer a mix of “old and excellent teaching and cutting–edge, innovative education.” 
 
Getting a postgraduate degree from the European Union has a lot of advantages.  An EU degree affords better possibilities for those who want to move up on their professional careers.  It is also an excellent destination for academic and scientific research opportunities.  An educational experience in the EU also bears other benefits such as learning new languages, immersing in its member states’ many rich and diverse cultures, and being part of an international network of students and peers.  
 
Studying in the EU also proves to be a cost-effective investment.  With an array of scholarship options available, international students can pursue postgraduate degrees with ease.  One such option is the Erasmus+ programme, which encourages deserving individuals to take further studies in education, training, youth, and sports in the EU.  
 
EHEF is designed to enable students to get quick yet comprehensive information on higher education and mobility programmes. Learn more about the EU educational system and way of life through lectures and direct interaction with university and HEI representatives, alumni volunteers, and past Erasmus+ scholars.  There will also be country presentations from each member state to showcase all the best reasons why one should definitely consider pursuing higher education in the European Union.  
 
Admission to the fair is free. Interested parties can pre–register online for the country presentations via  www.ehef–philippines.com.
