Around 125 exhibitors including universities of global ranking, embassies and higher educational institutions from 26 European Union (EU) Member States attended the two day European Higher Education Fair organised in New Delhi by the European Union Delegation to India with nearly 100 globally renowned European higher education institutions.

The fair was inaugurated on Friday by Minister of State for Foreign Affairs M J Akbar and was attended by Member Secretary AICTE Dr. A P Mittal and European Union Ambassador to India Tomasz Kozlowski along with other leaders.

The fair reaches out to Indian students looking to study abroad and showcases what Europe has to offer in terms of high quality and diversity of English-taught post-graduate and Ph.D. courses.

The fair also provides a platform to Indian Students to explore scholarship opportunities available for studying in Europe, funded by the EU and Member States.

More than 4,000 Indian students have benefited from Erasmus grants to study in Europe in recent years and about 1,700 grants were given to Indian researchers under the ‘Marie Sklodowska-Curie’ scholarships to teach and research in Europe.
