HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese students can search for opportunities to enjoy overseas education at the “Study in Europe” Education Fairs 2020.

Local students and their families will get introductions to the education systems, culture, traditions and attractions in European countries.

At the fair, 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 applications and studying in Europe safely and effectively during the pandemic.

Throughout the events, 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.

The event is held in Hà Nội on December 12 at Daewoo Hotel in Ba Dinh District, followed by HCM City on December 13 at the Gem Centre in District 1 by the Delegation of the European Union to Vietnam and its Member States.

“Studying in Europe, you will have the opportunity to learn new languages and intercultural skills. Academic mobility will be facilitated by real mobility throughout Europe,” said Giorgio Aliberti, Ambassador of the European Union to Việt Nam.

“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,” he said.

Europe is known as one of the biggest destinations for Vietnamese students. Around 15,000 of total 170,000 Vietnamese students going abroad are being trained and educated in Europe.

In the five-year period between 2014 and 2020, more than 190 students have received full scholarships from the Erasmus+ Programme to study Master's courses in Europe.

In addition, hundreds of other students are attending exchange courses or pursuing PhD studies under the International Credit Mobility or via the ongoing 51 cooperation projects between European and Vietnamese higher education institutions. — VNS
