The European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) – Study and Research in Europe took place for the 6th time in Japan, on 20th and 21st May, 2017.

More than 1300 students took part in the event and visited the ~70 exhibiting booths from 22 different European countries in total. Apart from the national and university booths, the EU DEL (Erasmus+, Horizon2020, Euraxess), the Japan Student Services Organization and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan was also present.

Hungary was represented at the Study in Hungary booth by the Embassy of Hungary in Tokyo, the University of Pécs, the University of Szeged and the Budapest Business School and all interested Japanese students could gather detailed information about the opportunities and characteristics of the Hungarian higher education, including the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme.

The main aim of the fair was to promote the higher education and the available study programmes of the European Union and its member states. As part of the opening event, the Japanese higher education institutions (more than 20) could also introduce their university programmes and profiles as well as build partnerships with European – including Hungarian – institutions during the networking and matchmaking session.

The Hungarian participation was financed by the Department for Science Diplomacy of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and was professionally supported by Tempus Public Foundation as well.
