The sixth edition of the European Higher Education Virtual Fair (EHEVF) India will be held from November 24 to 26, 2021, through a 3D virtual platform that will connect leading European higher education institutes with Indian students.

Some of the Top-ranking European universities (as per QS World University Rankings 2022) are participating this year. These include Trinity College, the University College Cork, and the University of Dublin from Ireland; the Wageningen University and Research, Leiden University, and the University of Groningen from The Netherlands; Aarhus University, Denmark; University of Twente, the Netherlands; Radboud University, The Netherlands; Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the University of Antwerp, Belgium; Università degli studi di Padova, Italy; University of Navarra and BarcelonaTECH from Spain; University of Tartu, Estonia; and Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. The students will have the opportunity to interact and choose from a range of universities and courses.
The European Higher Education Virtual Fair 2021 will provide Indian students the opportunity to interact with world-class institutions available in Europe and help with practical steps on how to get admission into one of these.
According to H.E. Ugo Astuto, ambassador of the European Union, choosing the country, university and the course for pursuing higher education is a key decision. The EHEVF brings together the EU, its member States, universities and education organisations on one platform, making it easier for students to gain insights into the European higher education landscape and to take an informed decision. The mobility of students is a critical aspect of people-to-people contacts, strengthening connectivity between the EU and India through academic and cultural exchanges.
