For the first time since the inception of European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) in Manila, the European Higher Education Fair Roadshow was held at the Lyceum Philippine University in General Trias, Cavite last October 28.
EU Delegation to the Philippines First Counsellor Mr. Rafael de Bustamante Tello said that the roadshow was brought about by the clamor of students and young professionals, researchers to bring the EHEF outside Manila.
The EHEF was held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the LPU in Cavite and featured universities/higher education institutions from Austria with Advantage Austria and Modul University participated, Czech Republic’s Charles University and Masaryk University, Hungary’s Budapest Metropolitan University, Italy’s Instituto Europeo di Design and Campus Spain from Spain.
The embassies of the Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden as well as Campus France, DAAD will also be represented during the EHEF 2019 Roadshow.
This year’s theme, “Study in Europe: EUr Journey to Excellence” establishes EU’s position as an outstanding center of quality and excellence in higher education.
Obtaining postgraduate studies in the EU offers many advantages and possibilities. The EU is an excellent destination for academic and scientific research programmes, as well as being an ideal atmosphere for scholarly activities. Most EU universities offer specialized and advanced study courses in Engineering, Architecture, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, and Information Technology.
The other tangible benefits of an educational experience in the EU include learning new languages, immersing in diverse cultures, and joining an international network of students and peers.
The EU also provides scholarships to foster student mobility and academic excellence such as the Erasmus+ programme, which encourages students from partner countries to take higher education courses in the EU. This year alone, 66 Filipino students have been awarded Erasmus+ scholarships that will allow them to take MA courses in various EU universities. More than 400 Filipino students have already pursued their academic dreams in several EU member states and have successfully made their mark in their chosen fields.
The EHEF is 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).
The Philippine Business and News is a proud media partner of the European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) 2019.
