Romania is the second largest country in Central and Eastern Europe after Poland. The school population reached 4 million people in 2011, with over 800,000 in high-school and over 600,000 in universities. In the absence of official data regarding the number of Romanian students studying abroad, estimations indicate approx. 50,000 students.

Romanian students register an increasing interest in obtaining international degrees and British universities are held in very high regard. The rapid spread of English language competence among younger people is a further advantage for UK providers.

The exhibitors will benefit from full support from the British Embassy staff prior, during and after the exhibition.

Why attend?
This will be an excellent opportunity for UK institutions to interact with Romanian students interested in studying in the UK, but also with potential partners for longer term collaboration.
