EU Organises European Higher Education Virtual Fair India & South Asia (EHEVF) 2016

To promote educational initiatives between the European Union and India and encourage more students to study in Europe, the Delegation of the European Union to India is organising a series of webinars to provide a virtual dialogue platform between European higher education institutions (HEIs) and Indian/South Asian students.

Today, Europe has approximately 4000 higher education institutes, with about one-fifth of the world’s students studying there (roughly 20 million) and about 1.5 million academicians teaching there. This is solely due to the fact that Europe boasts of providing cutting edge education, value for money and rich cultural experience to students from the globe alike. Out of the 20 million students immigrating to Europe to study, approximately 50,000 are Indian students. The fair is being organised to provide Indian students a platform to explore the educational, scholarship and career opportunities available in Europe.

Study in Europe

The EHEVF 2016 has a website that lists more than 180 institutes in Europe, that broadcasts two series of webinars in July & September 2016 by institutes for the benefit of Indian students.

The EHEVF 2016 September series that is being conducted has subject sessions on popular courses sought by Indian / international students in European universities such as Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology, Business management and marketing / MBA and medicine and health.

The first day of the seminar saw more than 1000 students participating in live webinars and interacting with representatives of leading higher education institutions and subject matter specialists. Universities like Kaunas University of Technology Lithuania, Technical University of Denmark, Technical University of Liberec, Faculty of Textile Engineering Czech Republic, and Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Lithuania participated in the seminars and interacted with students and answered their queries.

Subject topics covered included Computer Science by (EISTI France, EURECOM France, University of Tartu Estonia, and Universidade Portucalense - Oporto Global University Portugal), Business Management and Marketing by (Halmstad Universtiy Sweden, Masaryk University, Czech Republic) and Medicine, Health and Bio-Sciences by (Radboud University Netherlands, Technical University of Denmark, University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy Bulgaria, and Kaunas University of Technology Lithuania).
