On 12th and 13th December, 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 2020. 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 2014 - 2020, 191 students have received full scholarship from the Erasmus+ Programme to study Master courses in Europe. In 2020, 41 excellent Vietnamese students were awarded full scholarships to pursue joint Master's Degree full-time at the prestigious universities in Europe. 

The series of events will start in Hanoi on Saturday, 12 December at Daewoo Hotel (360 Kim Ma St, Ba Dinh District), followed by Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday, 13 December at Gem Center (08 Nguyen Binh Khiem St, District 1).

Ambassador of the European Union to Vietnam H.E.Mr Giorgio Aliberti said “Studying in Europe, you will have opportunity to learn new languages and intercultural skills. Academic mobility will be facilitated by real mobility throughout Europe. Once you are in the Schengen area you will be able to travel all over the continent and discover the beauty of Europe. Studying in Europe can be affordable and in most European countries, tuition fees are very low compared to the top quality education that you will receive.”

At the "Study in Europe" Education Fairs 2020, participants will attend a discussion 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. In addition, education consultants from many countries will share and answer questions around application and studying in Europe safely and effectively during the pandemic.

Throughout the events, from 8:30AM – 13:00PM at the “Counsellor Area”, public visitors can find detailed information and consult with country representatives at the information booths of the attending countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, France, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Finland, Portugal, Romania, Poland, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden. Participants can also enjoy fun quizzes, interactive games, and bring home souvenirs from Europe.
