EU higher education fair opens in Manila
(Philstar.com) - November 4, 2015 - 8:25pm

MANILA, Philippines - Catch up with the best higher education institutions from the European Union.

The Delegation of the European Union to the Philippines, together with the EU Member States' Embassies and Cultural Institutes, and in collaboration with the Commission on Higher Education, will bring back the European Higher Education Fair with this year's theme "Quality. Mobility. Innovation."

Twenty-seven European Higher Education institutions from 12 European Union member states will be participating in the fair on 7 November from 12:30 to 6:00 p.m. at Dusit Thani Hotel. Admission to the fair is free. Students, academicians, researchers and faculty may either pre-register at http://www.EHEFPhilippines.org or walk in during the fair proper at the hotel venue.

The main goal of the fair is to allow Filipino students find endless opportunities offered by European universities and to get immediate and direct answers from their representatives who have travelled all the way from Europe.

Recognizing that boosting one's language proficiency could be vital ahead when studying abroad, the five biggest EU Cultural Institutes — Goethe-Institut Philippinen, Alliance Française de Manille, Instituto Cervantes de Manila, Istituto Dante Alighieri and the Philippine Italian Association, will  also have their booths this year.

"The European Higher Education Fair 2015 is an opportunity for Filipinos to pursue their higher education programmes in the European Union which is one of the best higher education destinations in the world today," Mattias Lentz, Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of the EU Delegation to the Philippines said. "The European Union can offer the excellent mix of diversity and quality of higher education institutions as it tries to harmonize the wisdom of the past and the charm and cutting-edge technology of today's seats of learning." 

Opening the exhibit are the European ambassadors, education and cultural counselors to the Philippines alongside officials from the Philippine higher education institutions. Filipino Erasmus Mundus alumni led by Kate Ramil, country representative of the Erasmus Mundus Association - Philippines  and several other institutions will also attend the fair.

Partners of the European Higher Education Fair 2015  include philstar.com, ANC and Business Mirror.
