Study in Europe 2018: Foreword


The European Union - Study in France


In its 12th year in Singapore, Study in Europe presents a diverse array of study programmes on offer throughout Europe and highlights a range of scholarship options that facilitate studying in Europe for Singaporean students. The programmes on offer at European universities bring together students from all over the world. The intent is to assist students foster closer networks not just with universities but also with the countries they choose to study in. Our popular annual higher education fair aims to connect students in Singapore with European universities and provide them first hand and easy access to useful information about the wide variety of study options in Europe, details of the application processes, and the range of bond-free scholarships which they may apply for. The fair provides information about the many European universities where courses are conducted in English and where the option to work part-time while studying is available. 2018 marks the 31st year of the EU's student exchange programme Erasmus+, which enables university students the opportunity to study or intern in another country. Erasmus+ funding includes support for education and training of staff, youth workers, and partnerships between universities, colleges, schools, enterprises, and not-for-profit organizations. 2018 also marks the fourth year of the ASEAN-EU project Supporting Higher Education in the ASEAN Region', or SHARE. Funded by the European Union with EUR 10 million, SHARE has already provided 400 scholarships for ASEAN students to study in other ASEAN countries, replicating the Erasmus+ intra-EU scholarship scheme.


I am pleased that in this year's fair we see an all-time high participation of 14 European countries. These are: Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom We will have several education experts present at #EUSIE18 to tell you lots more about Studying in Europe. I sincerely hope that all those who are looking at further study options in Europe will find both the fair as well as the information provided in this booklet useful.
