EU's annual higher education fair Study In Europe sees an all-time high participation by 15 European countries. This reflects the growing interest in the various education options available across Europe. Our fair this year comes on the back of our deepening engagement with students and youth in Singapore. From May to July several European Ambassadors and senior diplomats reached out to over 10,000 students through their school visits that were part of the inaugural EU@Your School Project.

Our popular annual higher education fair is an opportunity to connect students in Singapore with European universities and provide them first hand and easy access to useful information about the wide variety of study options in Europe, details of the application processes, and the range of bond-free scholarships which they may apply for.

2019 marks the 32nd year of the EU's student exchange programme Erasmus+, which enables university students to study or intern in another country. It is very good news that a proposal to double the Erasmus+ budget for 2021-2027 is currently under consideration. Once approved, this can open up more opportunities for youth to truly experience Europe. Erasmus+ funding includes support for education and training of staff, youth workers, and partnerships between universities, colleges, schools, enterprises, and not-for-profit organizations.

2019 also marks the fifth year of the ASEAN-EU project Supporting Higher Education in the ASEAN Region', or SHARE. Funded by the European Union with EUR 10 million, SHARE has already provided 400 scholarships for ASEAN students to study in other ASEAN countries, replicating the Erasmus+ intra-EU scholarship scheme.

European countries participating in this year's fair are: Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
