Salon en ligne rencontrer universités britanniques février 2021 Friday 28 January 2022

From 14-25 February students from EU and EEA countries can explore a wide range of world-class courses for undergraduates and postgraduates. 

Study UK: Meet the universities follows the success of the British Council’s Study UK: The essentials online event in October 2021, when over 3,000 European students joined to learn about studying in the UK.

This year, undergraduate and postgraduate students will be able to engage with 53 universities from across the United Kingdom – including five of the UK’s top ten and two in the world top 20 university rankings (Guardian’s University Ranking 2021, Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021), and two thirds of the members of the renowned ‘Russell Group’ of leading research universities.

The programme will run from 14 to 25 February 2022. The platform is part of the British Council’s Study UK campaign in Europe, working with university partners to promote study in the UK and provide clear, reliable information to prospective students and their families. The event will give students direct contact with leading UK universities. In addition to signing up for live webinars, students from EU and EEA countries can schedule individual online meetings with advisors from UK universities. Registration to the platform is open and free of charge.

Many of the participating universities will be sharing their latest scholarships and funding offers available to European students. Registration to the platform allows students to browse profiles of the universities and watch all webinar sessions from the October Study UK: The essentials event about applying to, moving to and studying at a UK university. 

Helen Etheridge, the British Council’s Higher Education and Science lead in EU Region, said: The UK education sector is one of the most international in the world. Students and staff from the EU and beyond are extremely welcome. International students make an enormous contribution to the UK and the success of its education institutions. The UK is home to two of the world’s top three universities, and there are 26 in the top 200 best institutions for learning. UK graduates are among the most employable in the entire world, with three UK universities ranked in the global top 20 for employability, with a further 14 ranked in the top 100. 53 brilliant higher education institutions from across Scotland, Wales and England are joining us during our February event to speak directly with European students. Students will be able to access detailed information about the application process, support packages, fees, immigration regulations and language requirements. The event is free and open for all European students, and we hope to see them soon!

About the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We build connections, understanding and trust between people in the UK and other countries through arts and culture, education and the English language. Last year we reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, and through broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934 we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body. We receive a 15 per cent core funding grant from the UK government.

The roots of the British Council lie in Europe. Our first offices opened in Europe in 1938 and we have supported educational and cultural relations with countries of Europe ever since.

Our higher education work supports internationalisation, mobility of academics and students, and partnerships between UK and European higher education institutions. We contribute to current debates by providing insights and knowledge. We conduct research to understand the impact of our work, and to foster innovation within the sectors and communities in which we work.
