European Higher Education Fair scheduled on October 10.

By Merlina Hernando-Malipot

Filipino students and other individuals interested in pursuing further studies in Europe will once again have the chance to urther assess their plans and options as the 2018 European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) Philippines opens in October.

Organized by the Delegation of the European Union to the Philippines together with EU Member States' Embassies and Campus France, Instituto Cervantes, Philippine-Italian Association, Goethe Institut in partnership with the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the EHEF will open on October 10 at the Shangri-La Plaza.

It will feature universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Europe.

Through the EHEF, the European Union hopes to open doors to Filipino students looking to expand their horizons through post-graduate studies.

This year's theme, 'Sustaining Innovation and Excellence', further promotes EU as a center of excellence and quality in higher education.

For EU Ambassador Franz Jessen, this year's exciting fair will once again be a platform for the EU to offer fusion of "old and excellent teaching and cutting-edge, innovative higher education."

The event will also highlight the advantages of getting a postgraduate degree from the European Union.

For instance, an EU degree affords better possibilities for those who want to move up on their professional careers and it is also an excellent destination for academic and scientific research opportunities.

An educational experience in the EU provides a new dimension to learning new languages, immersing in its member states' many rich and diverse cultures, and being part of an international network of students and peers.

Studying in Europe also proves to be a cost-effective investment.

With an array of scholarship options available, international students can pursue postgraduate degrees.

One such option is the Erasmus+ programme, which encourages deserving individuals to take further studies in the EU.

The EHEF is designed to enable students to get quick yet comprehensive information on higher education and mobility programmes. Filipino youth can learn more about the EU educational system and way of life through lectures and direct interaction with university and HEI representatives, alumni volunteers, and Erasmus+ alumni.
