For those aspiring Filipinos who wants to pursue post-graduate studies abroad, this is your chance to know more about the EU Higher Education Systems and their institutions at the European Higher Education Fair that will happen on Nov. 10, 2016 at Fairmont Hotel Makati.
“Sustaining Innovation and Excellence” will be the theme for this year as they will feature top-notch universities from EU countries, as well as their different graduate programs and specific requirements that you need to be able to study in EU.
“EHEF will pave the way for Filipino students to experience these diversified and excellent programmes, including master’s and doctorate degrees of EU universities. Europe is also welcoming to foreign students from all over the world, social activities are well programmed to make the students feel at home and mobility of the students across Europe and other countries outside Europe is also incorporated,’’ Mr. Mattias Lentz (EU Delegation to the Philippines’ Minister Counsellor) said.
I was privileged to be part of the Press Conference last October 24 conducted by the European Union Delegation of the Philippines. I posted some of the key points from the speakers that I think will help you in pursing your studies in EU.
Nicholai Hansen (left), a 25 year old Danish law student from the University of Copenhagen. He said the best advantage of having post-graduate in the European Union is the well-recognized universities throughout the EU. Philippines and Denmark share a lot of culture and learning which makes Denmark an ideal place for Filipino students.
Erika Kirsten Vocal (third), she studied under the Erasmus Mundus European Excellence Program. Aside from the advancement of Technology, the teaching approach is different as they focused more on the application rather than the lectures.
According to Katherina McGrath (third), German Academic Exchange Service Lecturer (DAAD) there are 280 Filipino students enrolled in Germany, majority of whom are enrolled in Law, Economy & Business, and Social Sciences courses. Education is free, regardless of their financial background, and living expenses assistance provided by the German Government. Facilities are state-of-the-art and courses offer even greater in-depth specialization. Many degree programs are offered in English so you don’t need to learn a different langauge before being able to study in Europe.
Kate Alyzon Ramil (second), MA in Women’s and Gender Studies, Universidad de Granada, Spain. Her European Scholarship brought her to a higher place, that is, higher consciousness. She become more culturally sensitive at the same time more independent. She’s lucky and blessed enough to experience GEMMA, It’s her task to bring her education into practice by starting in their own small community. She wants to empower more people especially the young and the women through sustainable developmental programmes in her foundation.
