About EHEVF India and South Asia 2016

Following on from the highly successful European Higher Education Virtual Fair India and South Asia 2015, the Delegation of the European Union to India, in collaboration with EU Member States, organised the European Higher Education Virtual Fair India and South Asia 2016 (EHEVF 2016).

An innovative, ‘Virtual’ initiative, EHEVF 2016 was designed to highlight the many benefits of Europe as a high standard higher education destination, to potential international students, researchers, and academics across India and South Asia.

EHEVF 2016 comprised two major components – this ‘Online Portal’ and website and the European Higher Education ‘Virtual Fair’.

This online portal/website acts as an interface between India and South Asian students, researchers and academics on the one hand - and European Higher Education institutions on the other. Information is presented in several useful sections including ‘EU countries’ and ‘Subject Specialities’. Each participating European Higher Education Institution also has its own micro-page containing information on programmes and courses, qualifications, institutional background, alumni, scholarships, and even living and accommodation.

The Virtual Fair, which was held in July and September 2016, did allow Indian and South Asian student, researchers and academics to interact with European higher education representatives through multiple webinars and personalized Q/A with the participating universities and EU member state representatives.     

ERASMUS+ is the European Union Programme for 2014-2020 to support projects, partnerships, events and mobility in the areas of education, training, youth and sport. Learn more here.
