High-quality education for students with great potential
With over 400 Nobel Laureates and about 45% of the patent applications worldwide, Europe is a natural leader in research and education. No matter what you choose to study – science, law, business and economics or humanities – you can pursue this in Europe. There are also opportunities for training that are directly connected to the industry that you intend to pursue a career in.
The Top-ranking universities provide a broad variety of courses and many are taught in English. Language classes at all levels are also available. The European diplomas are recognized around the world. More information about your academic options in Europe can be found on the country pages, or through a Database on Educational Exchange Programmes (DEEP). This is an initiative of the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) that contains information on courses and scholarships from thousands of universities in Europe.
Studying in the EU costs less than you think!
Education in Europe is considered a basic right. Efforts are taken to ensure that Europe's more than 6,000 higher education institutions are open to anyone with the appropriate qualifications. Therefore tuition fees in Europe are comparatively affordable. There are many scholarships available that can help you cover the cost of studying in Europe.
European higher education institutions provide a strong support to help your education
European higher education institutions will support you throughout your studies overseas. These services can include airport transfers, university orientation programmes, accommodation, mentoring, and extra curricular activities – everything that you need to help you settle into your studies and surroundings.
The EU Member States also make every effort to simplify the delivery of visas for overseas students. Online procedures are widely available and you may also get information from your local embassies on visa application procedures.
Europe is culturally rich and diverse!
Europe is rich in history and culture. In Europe you will discover that we speak many languages, have diverse culture and traditions. In the EU alone we have 23 official languages. Its landscapes and nature are unmatched around the world. And thanks to the provisions of Schengen Treaty, you may travel throughout most of Europe with only one visa.
