Why study in the Europe?

Europe's highest point, just north of the Georgia border in European Russia is Mt. Elbrus at 18,481 ft (5,633m). Its lowest point is on the edge of the Caspian Sea, at 92 ft (28m) below sea level. Expand your horizons and widen your career choices.

Use your studies in the European Union to start a successful career. In the European Union you will discover a panorama of nations, people, languages and cultures, joined together in peaceful unity. You can expect more than just a springboard to your future career. You can learn new languages, enjoy cultural marvels and delicious food, hone your social skills and make new friends from around the world.

A dynamic economy like the European Union increasingly needs highly-qualified university graduates and offers many training and professional opportunities to students from around the world. The European Union also needs qualified contacts and business partners for its manufacturing and overseas commercial offices in South and South-East Asia and China. This is where people with the right knowledge and international experience are important, people that have become acquainted with our culture and possibly learned our languages. For you as a student from India, this represents a new and attractive opportunity to launch a promising future career. By coming to the European Union to study, you can lay a foundation today for your future career.

In a world that has grown ever smaller in the wake of globalisation, graduates with international experience are needed more than ever. With a top-quality European degree in your pocket you can demonstrate to potential future employers that you are cosmopolitan, flexible and mobile.

By studying abroad you will develop your communication skills and team spirit. Gaining experience of life in the European Union will make you more mature, expand your horizons and open up your mind professionally and culturally to meet the challenges of globalisation.

High-Quality Education for students with great potential
No matter what your personal preference is - whether scientific or technical, the arts or business and economics - you can pursue the courses you need for your future career in the European Union. You can apply to universities, technical or business schools. In the European Union you can find higher education and training directly connected to business, industry and on-the-job work experience.

Since European higher education institutions regularly undergo quality control reviews, they meet the highest international standards. The alignment of study standards across the European Union under the so-called Bologna Process has opened the door to the mutual recognition of cross-border exchanges. European governments have committed themselves to forming a ''European Higher Education Area'' of common academic values, transparency, diploma recognition, and high quality education.

Countries rich in Innovation
Great intellectual and technical innovations have made Europe what it is today: a leader in areas of the liberal arts, in design and fashion, in banking and financing, in the media and in telecommunications technologies. The large number of European Nobel Prize winners clearly demonstrates the European continent''s tremendous capacity for excellence. Many technological innovations have European inventors. The European Union submits over 44% of the total number of patent applications worldwide.

Innovation in Europe has produced many of the products or services we often take for granted in today''s world. From hi-tech advances that produced the Ariane space programme, the high definition TV and the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), to more everyday products such as the ball-point pen and the disposable camera.

New ways of living and travelling have been boosted by the European pioneers of low-cost airlines, high speed trains, flat-pack furniture and the Galileo navigation system.

Furthermore, the EU is highly visible in international trade in many key sectors - such as the environment, biotechnology, chemical and mechanical engineering, electronics and automobile manufacturing. Last but not least, the European Union''s success can be measured by the high standard of living and the level of education enjoyed by its citizens.

Visiting Europe (Schengen Visa)
If you are not a European Economic Area national and want to travel to Europe, you may be required to apply for a Schengen visa before you travel.

The Schengen Visa Scheme allows visitors to obtain one visa to visit a number of designated countries within the European Economic Area (EEA). Twenty five EEA countries now participate in the scheme, the members of the Schengen States are listed at the bottom of this webpage.

The Schenegan visa enables people from outside Europe the right move freely within the signatory countries of the Schenegan Agreement as internal borders checks no longer exist within Europe.At present, the following countries participate in the scheme. It is worth noting that the United Kingdom and the Republic or Ireland are not currently signatories.

The benefits of the Schengen scheme are self evident, allowing a holder to visit any country in the Schengen immigration area during the validity of the document.

Prior to the implementation of the agreement, the European nations involved relied on a complex and often obtrusive system of border controls and checkpoints.

Whilst most Schengen nations are also EU members, customs controls have also been removed allowing for unhindered access between nation states.

Some exceptions remain; in countries where one Schengen country borders a non-Schengen territory but both are member states of the EU, passport checks persist but customs checks are no longer in place.

In situations where two Schengen states border, but only one is an EU member, the reverse is true.

Applying for visas for access to European nations in this way is intended as a temporary measure and by definition does not offer permanent residency or settled status in any of the participating nations.

In addition, whilst sometimes referred to as a Schengen business visa, those in possession of a visa for entry to Schengen participant nations may not seek or undertake employment whilst in Europe through this temporary immigration service.

Holders may visit conferences, make fact-finding missions or source customers or supplies much like UK visit visas and the equivalent grant in many other nations.

However, working is not permitted without applying for a work permit for each country in which an applicant intends to work. As with a UK work permit, these will generally be issued for a six month to two year period.
