About Study & Research in Europe 2010
With Korea-EU FTA soon to come into effect, the needs of professionals with European connection and expertise in the companies are increasing and as a result, the students’ interest in study and research opportunities in Europe is growing rapidly.
In respond to the current trend, “Study & Research in Europe” has been designed for all those students and professionals who are interested in studying in Europe, either during their studies at a Korean university or for a follow-up degree programme. This fair offers an extraordinary insight into study and research opportunities in core European countries, including in-depth details not only on study programmes but also on scholarship opportunities. The programme is divided into two major sections that will run in a parallel fashion. Section 1 includes presentation on European Higher Education, the EU Erasmus Mundus Programme as well as country presentations by each individual country. Information on job and internship opportunities will also be made available. Section 2 presents a fair with individual booths hosted by all the countries participating in this fair.
Why Study & Research in Europe?
Europe offers diverse competitive edges in the study and research field, for example:
- Europe is developing a scheme to create a European Higher Education Area with more compatible and comparable quality control and recognition procedures called Bologna Process.
- Europe is a unique pool of cultural diversity and dynamics. Students who choose to study in Europe can earn world-class qualifications as well as the intercultural skills and multi-lingual communication abilities that are required to become global leaders of the next generation.
- The high academic standards can be achieved with relatively low investment. Tuition fees and daily living costs are reasonable. In addition, since education had always been and still is the sector with the highest importance in Europe, students can explore variety of scholarship opportunities that are not only offered by each university but also by the country and EU.
- Europe is renowned for its expertise in many different fields ranging from medicine to space travel, from nanotechnology to polar research, etc. with numerous Nobel Prize winners, world-famous researchers and scientists.
- There are thousands of higher education institutions in Europe to choose from, offering a great variety of degree programmes both in languages of the host country and in English. In addition, there is a unique cooperation and mobility programmes offered to non-European students. (e.g. Erasmus Mundus)
To highlight this event, a quiz has been organized with some questions about Europe. All students can participate to win round trip flight tickets to Europe. There are also other cultural gifts from each European country they can win.
