Now that you've been working for a decade, it's probably a good time to consider taking things a notch higher by going on a hiatus and pursuing further studies. Having sufficient work experience under your belt, you now have the readiness and the maturity to give school another shot; maybe this time, you can opt to be more adventurous and try a different geography—like Europe.


It isn’t as far off a dream as you would think. In fact, you can start the journey with the 2018 European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) that's set to happen on October 10 at the Grand Atrium of Shangri-la Plaza in Mandaluyong. If you want to pursue a higher degree in business, engineering, sciences, and the arts, then these 30+ schools in different EU countries will be offering an array of courses to suit your career path:


  • Ghent University

According to Entrepreneur Philippines and, those who pursue their master’s degree are more likely to have better pay. In fact, those who took post-graduate studies are paid 73 percent higher than those who only have a college diploma. Aside from the potential pay increase, studying abroad is an interesting adventure in itself. European Union Ambassador Franz Jessen notes that it “allows one to gain a different perspective.” Studying specifically in Europe will also give you a working edge especially if you’re dead set on learning another language, plus you’ll even get the opportunity to find a job in your chosen country should you wish to pursue your career outside the Philippines.

Interested? There’s no harm in checking the fair out—maybe now is the best time to invest in yourself.
