During the press launch of the EHEF 2015 on Thursday, EU Delegation to the Philippines Charge d'Affaires Mattias Lentz said that the fair, which will feature 27 European higher educational institutions from 12 EU states, will greatly benefit Filipino students who want to study in Europe as they will get direct and immediate response to their queries.
(The EHEF's goal) is to give Filipinos students the opportunity to learn more about European universities and get immediate and direct answers from the representatives of the higher educational institutions [who] will be present in the fair, Lentz said.
In its fourth year, participating educational institutions at the EHEF are eyeing the inclusion of mobility opportunities across the EU and a better platform for dialogue to further strengthen partnership between the European Union and the Philippines.
EHEF Philippines 2015 also includes lectures on the European educational system and way of life to prepare applicants who aspire to enroll in any of the participating educational institutions.
