Higher Education

The search for your children’s future university is not always easy, neither for you or for them, especially when you don’t know which course to take, which university or which country! Open days are there to help you decide which university and course of study is best for your children. If some universities don’t have open days available, check out the websites of the universities you are interested in to get more information.

Below is a summary of various websites providing information on universities with open days in the coming months.

Several websites also offer an overview of the different universities in Europe (e.g. study.eu), so do not hesitate to contact your guidance counsellor.

Note: some universities operate on the basis of an application deadline, so please pay attention to this.
