The Educatio - International Trade Fair for Education in Budapest, Hungary continues to grow as the leading event to promote international studies to an ardent audience of students in Hungary. The 18th Educatio International Education Fair is organized on 18-20 January 2018 in Budapest. The exhibition is waiting for students from high schools, their parents, educators, educational institution directors and decision-makers.

Reasons to Attend

The EDUCATIO International Trade Fair for Education, which has been organized each year since 2000, is the most important and most significant annual meeting of the profession of Hungarian education. Around 200 exhibition pavilions, nearly 30,000 visitors, representation from nearly all Hungarian higher education institutions, and the latest educational developments, school equipment, methods!

Hundreds of exhibitors – among them all of the Hungarian universities and colleges – represent the national secondary and higher education, the production of school equipment, the publishing of textbooks, the professional training, the language teaching and the quality assurance. The exhibition stands, the professional lectures and the presentations provide the opportunity for visitors to get more information about the present situation and the prospects of the education.

Market Overview

The total number of students in the higher education system was over 380,000 during the 2015/2016 academic year. Hungary has 70 operating higher education institutions. Hungarian institutions of higher education have started the transformation toward the regulations of the Bologna system. In the new system, both colleges and universities may launch bachelor, master and PhD programs provided that the necessary requirements are fulfilled. This also means that all awarded degrees are equivalent and transferrable throughout the EU and many other countries.

Fair Outline

It is one of the most momentous annual meetings for Hungarian educators across the country and increasingly from overseas. Besides the national and foreign higher education institutions, companies and other organisations related to education will also participate in Budapest, Hungary at the Trade Fair.

Thanks to the written material offered at the exhibiting stands, the presentations and the professional lectures, visitors at the education fair in Hungary, will have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the specific features of each institution. During the three days of the Trade Fair, more than 25,000 visitors are expected to come and gather information about the content of training courses, academic programmes and admission requirements.

Following the practice of the past years, EDUCATIO 2018 will be dedicated not only to the opportunities of the continuation of studies in Hungary, abroad and the changes in the national higher education system, but also to the companies that are - in one way or another - related to education.

The importance of the education fair in Hungary for the students, the parents and the educational decision-makers is given by the fact that it makes them possible to get all the necessary information at the same time, in the same place: the students taking an entrance examination in the near future can inquire about the chances and the opportunities to take the entrance exam, while the decision-makers can inquire about the available tenders and the school equipment supply.

The Ministry of Education and Culture, in collaboration with the Educatio Kht., will organise the 17th International Trade Fair for Education.
