New Delhi : The European Union is organising an education fair beginning Thursday to connect European higher education institutes with Indian students. Through a series of web-based seminars, the students will get an opportunity to explore a wide range of education courses offered by 54 leading universities from 20 countries of the European Union (EU), an official statement said Wednesday. In the four-day fair, aspiring students will get a chance to directly interact with officials from leading higher education institutions (HEIs) in the web seminars. "This is the third edition of the EU Higher Education Virtual Fair – a unique opportunity to connect some of the best European academic institutions with Indian students.
At any point of time, there are more than 50,000 Indian students pursuing education endeavours in Europe," Ambassador of the EU to India Tomasz Kozlowski said. He said over the years, increasing number of Indian students have started looking at European Universities due to unparalleled quality, diversity and opportunities it offers them. "We are going to have 40 web-based seminar sessions over four days. I am hopeful that more Indian students will make best use of this opportunity and explore education opportunities with Europe," he added. Since 2015, the EU has been organising the virtual education fair promoting Europe as a destination for higher education and research for Indian students and academic community. The fair provides aspirants with the latest information and advice directly from EU-based HEIs, EU member states representatives, and subject experts through different tools.
