WITH the pandemic bringing the world to a halt, the Delegation of the European Union (EU) to the Philippines sees a great opportunity to champion higher education as an essential tool for young people to influence the world today and in the near future.

With that in mind, the EU Delegation will host the first-ever virtual European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) on October 2 and 3, embracing digital transformation by staging the much-anticipated annual education fair live online. This makes the event more accessible to Filipino students and members of the academe, while extending its reach to other provinces in the country.

This year’s theme, “Study in Europe: The Future is EUrs,” further establishes the EU as the Filipino youth’s gateway to excellence in higher education. The bloc is known as one of the world’s ultimate hubs for cross-fertilization of ideas, cutting-edge technology, and innovation coming from its many outstanding universities and European higher education institutions (EHEIs).

EHEF 2020 provides the best platform to link Filipino students with EU universities and EHEIs. This year’s online fair will feature webinars on research programs, sponsorships, and mobility opportunities. There will also be country presentations and live chats with EHEI representatives, alumni and scholars. Virtual meeting rooms will be set up for Philippine higher education institutions and their EU counterparts. Students will have a chance to explore opportunities for distance learning, with many EHEIs offering postgraduate degrees through distance education programs.

As EHEF 2020 goes virtual, it will also go regional for the first time, and in real time. Regional partner institutions Ateneo de Manila University for Metro Manila, Wesleyan University for Luzon, Silliman University for Visayas, and Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan for Mindanao will host clustered presentations for their students and other interested parties in their respective regions. A virtual networking event will also take place on October 2 at 7:30 p.m.

EHEF 2020 is organized by the Delegation of the EU to the Philippines, together with EU member-states’ embassies, in partnership with the Commission on Higher Education and is supported by BusinessMirror’s Envoys&Expats as well as other media partners. Interested parties can now preregister via
