EUr Journey to Excellence Begins Here!

EUr Journey to Excellence Begins Here!

The Philippines continues to have one of the highest literacy rates in Southeast Asia, next to neighbors Singapore, Brunei, and Indonesia.  This proves that education remains a priority for Filipinos.  But for those who are looking to pursue higher education, there’s one destination that’s long been known as a center of excellence with its cutting-edge technology, innovative methodologies, and high standard of quality: the European Union or the EU.  

And if you’re interested to go on a life-changing educational adventure, your journey to the EU begins at the European Higher Education Fair or EHEF 2019.  

This much-awaited education fair will be held on October 26 at the Grand Atrium of Shangri-La Plaza in Mandaluyong City. EHEF 2019 will also have a roadshow on October 28 as it goes to the Lyceum University of the Philippines in General Trias, Cavite. 

First Counsellor of the EU Delegation to the Philippines Rafael de Bustamante Tello and CHED Commissioner Aldrin Darilag will lead the opening ceremonies together with the heads of the EU member states and cultural groups.
