Study in Europe: Open Your Mind
European Higher Education Fair
Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam | 2 and 9 October 2022
Study in Europe: Open Your Mind higher education fair is back!
Studying abroad provides students with an opportunity to expand their horizons, learn about new cultures and make new friends in other countries. Europe, with its diversity and rich heritage, offers the perfect destination.
Europe’s long commitment to education has made it one of the best places for higher education. Of approximately 190,000 Vietnamese students studying abroad, Europe hosts about 40,000 of them. Every year, approximately 40 Vietnamese students are awarded the Erasmus Mundus scholarship - a full scholarship to study abroad for a master's degree, funded by the European Union.
This year, the higher education fair will take place in Hanoi on 2 October and Ho Chi Minh on 9 October in open-space locations. Parents and students can enjoy the fairs in person, after two years of virtual events.
Organised by the EU Delegation to Vietnam and EU Member States (EUMS), the fair will provide a space for students to learn about higher studies opportunities in Europe and collect information on education institutions, application processes, student life and scholarships.
Graduate and post-graduate students, academics and researchers between the ages of 18 and 35 are invited to join. Participants will have a chance to chat with university representatives, education agencies and scholarship providers. The fair will feature 16 EUMS booths in Hanoi, and 13 in Ho Chi Minh, where students can gain further information on study opportunities in the EU.
Responsible entrepreneurship and enhanced skills for decent employment are priority areas for both the EU and Vietnam. This fair will support EU-Vietnam’s efforts to provide relevant and quality vocational education and training, and especially to youth, with the knowledge, skills and competencies required for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
International academic and research cooperation also fosters knowledge-based societies, improves graduate employability, and enhances institutional governance. Such knowledge exchanges play a crucial role in nurturing common values and promoting common goals of multilateralism, universal human rights, innovative economy, and sustainable development.
