Market Overview

More and more students from the Baltic States tend to look for opportunities to gain high quality international education, professional training and experience. Foreign language courses are becoming increasingly popular among people of different ages and occupations. Every year the number of students going abroad to language schools and universities is steadily growing.

The Baltic region has a long tradition of providing high-quality education. For young people it is a vibrant and international environment with the possibility to make use of the latest developments in different study fields, which makes the region an attractive place for living and studying. According to statistics from a 2011 poll by the non-profit organization Dream Foundation, over 60 percent of Baltic students would like to study at a foreign university.

Fair Outline

The Days of International Education fairs are free to access by the public, allowing visitors to get acquainted with the student fair’s participants; their courses and programmes and to take enrolments. On the other hand, education providers have the opportunity to meet and support their education agents, the Baltic Council and to establish new contacts.

Days of International Education has already become a tradition. The success of the fair is based on qualitative service and professionalism of the organizers combined with broad promotion campaign providing return of investments for the fair’s participants.

During the last several years the Baltic States (Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania) have become more attractive for education providers from all over the world. This is not a casual interest, but a developing tendency proving that the potential and demand for the educational industry abroad in the Baltic region is very high.

Days of International Education has been successful during the previous 5 years with a growing number of participants and a strong presence of institutions presenting their programmes and services. The potential for the development of the education industry abroad is very high in the Baltics and the demand for quality programmes will continue to grow.
