EU Education Fair

On 28 and 29 September, the Delegation of the European Union to Vietnam and its Member States welcome students in Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City to "Study in Europe" Education Fairs. Vietnamese students and their families will have the opportunity to learn about excellent education systems, the culture, traditions and attractions of European countries.

 

Out of a total number of 70.000 Vietnamese students currently following courses abroad, Europe is one of the biggest net receivers of Vietnamese students with more than 15.000 – studying in Europe. In 2019, 34 students have received full scholarship from the Erasmus+ Programme to study Master courses in Europe, which is a remarkable increase from a total 25 scholarship holders in 2017. In addition, hundreds of other students are attending exchange courses (3-12 months) or pursuing PhD studies under the International Credit Mobility or via the ongoing 51 cooperation projects between European and Vietnamese Higher Education institutions.

 

The series of events will start in Hanoi on Saturday 28 September at Daewoo Hotel (360 Kim Ma Street, Ba Dinh District), followed by Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday 29 September at GEM Centre (8 Nguyen Binh Khiem street, District 1).

 

At the "Study in Europe" Education Fairs 2019, participants will attend a 2-hour conference session where they are given valuable information and listen to real-life, actual experience from alumni speakers. These alumni are representatives of outstanding Vietnamese students who have been or are still studying in EU countries.
