THE Delegation of the European Union to the Philippines will hold its annual European Higher Education Fair virtually this year to make it more accessible to Filipino students and members of the academe.

The fair, with the theme “Study in Europe: The Future is EUrs,” aims to establish the EU as the Filipino youth’s gateway to excellence in higher education. The online fair is slated from October 2 to 3, 2020.

“The EHEF 2020 provides the best platform to link Filipino students with EU universities and European Higher Education Institutions,” the agency said in a statement.

“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,” it added.

The group said virtual meeting rooms will be set up for Philippine higher education institutions and their European counterparts.

Students will also have the chance to explore opportunities for distance learning, with many EHEIs offering postgraduate degrees through distance education programs.

The online fair will likewise go regional as partner institutions including the Ateneo de Manila University, Wesleyan University, Silliman University, and Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan 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 pm.
