Greetings

Education has always been and will remain a top priority for Filipinos. In choosing an education, many have found that the higher education institutions in the European Union offer opportunities beyond comparison.

The universities and education institutions in Europe offer a mix of “old and excellent teaching and cutting edge and innovative education.” To learn more, you are welcome to join this year’s European Higher Education Fair 2017, held at the Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong City. There you will be able to get first-hand information and tips on how to pursue a European education, and achieve a better and complete academic record.

With this year’s theme being “Sustaining Innovation and Excellence”, the EHEF 2017 aims to bring both excellence and diversity to a growing number of prospective Filipino students.

The EHEF has been designed to enable you to get quick yet comprehensive information about what European Union has to offer when it comes to higher education and mobility programmes. At the Fair, we shall give you the most essential guidelines to help make your dream of studying in any of the higher education institutions in the EU come true.

This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus Programme, an EU-funded programme which gives support to education, training, youth and sport in Europe. This year, a total of 37 Filipinos have gone to the EU to undertake their Masters and PhD programmes on Erasmus scholarships. During the European Higher Education Fair, you will have the opportunity to meet with some of the Filipino Erasmus alumni as well as graduates from other EU universities who will share with you their experiences of having studied in Europe.

Welcome to our window on the campuses of Europe, we look forward to seeing you!
