Useful information for travellers and students on visas requirements and opportunities to study in Europe.

Home to the world’s finest museums, breath-taking architecture and amazing landscapes; to celebrated composers, sophisticated restaurants and famous brands: Europe has it all. It is a continent full of diversity and styles, from ancient times to today – and a master of reinvention. Steeped in history, it nevertheless shapes the future, in fashion, art, architecture, gastronomy and design.

However you envisage your ‘adventure of a lifetime’, deciding where and when to go is one of the biggest challenges of your trip! Whether your aim is to go back in time or get a glimpse of the future, discover the ‘must-sees’, or get off the beaten track, Europe is ready for you. Are you ready for Europe?

There are more than four thousand higher education institutions in Europe, from top-level research establishments to small, teaching-focused colleges. Europe itself is no less diverse, extending from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa, where tiny principalities sit side-by-side with many of the world’s leading economies.

A fascinating destination, but which country should you go to? Which university should you choose? What do you need before you leave? What will happen when you arrive? These are just some of the questions you’re probably asking yourself already. The Study in Europe website provides up-to-date information on 32 European countries, their universities and what it takes to live and study there. You can use Study in Europe to find the university that suits you best. A well-informed decision will make your time abroad even more valuable.
