Project Summary, Objectives and Results
Universities in the EU and elsewhere are vigorously marketing their courses overseas and adapting curricula to meet their demand.
Interest in developing international academic cooperation between faculties, institutions and networks is also growing and many developed country universities are establishing branches in Asia and Central Asia and/or entering into joint-venture activities with Asian and Central Asia partners.
The first European Higher Education Fair in Asia funded by the European Commission was held in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2004. “Fairs” are promotional activities which could range from traditional fairs to travelling road shows including a combination of both.
Other fairs took place in China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and other countries. The fairs enabled EU national representations and their higher education institutions to inform potential students, their advisors and sponsors about study opportunities in Europe.
The overall objective of the project is to promote European higher education to students and academic staff in Asia and Central Asia and to coordinate activities between European and third country higher education institutions.
