75 universities to attend European Higher Education Fair India 2014
Nearly 75 recognized universities will be part of the European Higher Education Fair India 2014 to be held across 3 cities in India. The fair organized by the European Union will witness the participation of 23 countries within the European Union.
The European Higher Education Fair India 2014 will kick off in New Delhi on 30 November and continue 1 December, 2014. The event in Delhi will be followed by Bengaluru on 3 December and Kolkata on 5 December.
Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Smriti Irani will inaugurate the fair in the capital on November 30.
“Presently, we are targeting these three major cities in India. However, if we witness a positive response from the students we will definitely explore other cities in the country, too.” said Dr Joao Cravinho, Ambassador of the European Union.
The European Higher education fair is the first of its kind to be held in India and the fair will give students a chance to explore education and scholarship opportunities for studying in Europe, especially, by EU and its member states. The primary aim of the fair is to highlight what Europe has to offer in terms of high quality and post-graduate level education to students in India.
Mr. Cravinho explains that one of the strong points of European education is that higher education in Europe is highly subsidized. “In fact, in countries like Germany, Finland and Norway higher education nearly zero while in some other countries like Denmark, Sweden and Austria it is substantially subsidized.” He said.
