Why Study in Europe?

Universities in Europe have long been known for their high academic standards, their cutting-edge research and their value for money. Thirty-one of the world’s top 100 universities, as listed by The Times in its 2012 World University Rankings, are located in Europe, making it the second biggest bloc of universities after the USA.

In all, there are over 4000 Higher Education Institutions in Europe offering a wide range of courses at Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate level. With more and more of these institutions introducing English as the language of instruction for at least some of their degree programs, universities in Europe are now better placed than ever before to offer a warm welcome to international students and to deliver a course of study that meets their career needs in today’s global market. This is particularly noticeable at graduate level: the number of English-taught Masters in mainland Europe has increased massively from just over 1000 in 2007 to over 5000 today. Degree courses taught in English are available in a huge array of disciplines from Business and Economics (currently the most popular, representing about 28% of English-taught Masters in Europe) to Engineering, Life Sciences (including medicine), Social Sciences and Humanities subjects.

Reason to study in europe

Choice and Flexibility : Choose your perfect course from among the tens of thousands of degree programmes offered by the higher-education systems within the European Union.

Take advantage of the flexibility provided by universities –such as the range of courses within your programme, the opportunities to gain experience in the world of industry and the possibility of studying in more than one European country.

Tradition & Innovation : The rich traditions of university life across Europe remain firmly in place – but our universities are far from resting on their laurel. In both the oldest and newest universities we can see the cutting-edge achievements of Europe’s researchers, who benefit from the enormous investments made in our higher-education institutions by governments, industry, and the European Union itself.

Quality : Europe’s universities are working ever more closely together to ensure the quality of education they provide. Student-centred learning isn’t just a slogan – it’s at the core of European values in higher education.

Internationalised outlook : Universities across the European Union are on a mission to become truly global in outlook and activities – and building a thriving community of international students and lecturers is often at the centre of this approach. Ask the exhibitors at the Fair to tell you how they are internationalising, and how you can benefit from this global outlook.
