European countries may compete for students, but also collaborate in attracting the best from around the world

A major pan-European initiative to encourage students from beyond the continent to come and study there has been relaunched.

The Study in Europe programme, spearheaded by Campus France, forms part of wider efforts by the European Commission to internationalise European higher education. It started in 2014 and has now been renewed for a further three years until the end of 2020.

The programme is run by a consortium that also includes the German Academic Exchange Service, equivalent bodies in the Netherlands and Estonia, the Brussels-based Academic Cooperation Association and – even as Brexit approaches – the British Council.

Although such countries naturally compete elsewhere for international students, Study in Europe initiatives see them coming together to promote the continent as a whole through a web portal, webinars, a social media campaign – and a series of face-to-face and virtual workshops in countries ranging from Ecuador, Ethiopia, Myanmar, Peru and Ukraine to Malaysia and South Africa.
