World Education Fair is the leading educational event in the Balkans. It covers five countries – Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Kosovo and Croatia. Its main goal is to inform potential applicants about the newest trends in education abroad and to promote the innovative aspects of the education structure of higher and secondary institutions.

Our mission is to help students discover their vocation and find suitable paths to pursue their dream career, but this is not all we do. We always aim to help partner universities and schools in their recruitment efforts. Provision of comprehensive information and guidance through all the steps of the application process is our main responsibility. What is more, we familiarize the young people with the opportunities to obtain a high quality education abroad, including a variety of language programs, elite secondary schools, undergraduate and postgraduate courses along with high level of service provided to both our clients and partners. We believe that education is a life-time investment. Hence, our main objective is to provide all the available information about education abroad.

A very well organised event with a significant number of interested and informed potential students.

This was a superbly organised event and I very much look forward to working with you again.

Matthew J. Homewood
Nottingham Law School

Well organized and well attended so PR and Advertising must be good. I think the process of students lining up and then sitting down to talk with the representatives is marvelous. You make much better contacts this way.

Melanee Crist
Truman State University, USA

Well organized, busy throughout, well staffed. Visitors were well informed and of a high quality. My only concern was that some Post Grad students had been given details of our MA programmes as a potential match to their enquires, this resulted in a little confusion. Excellent system and well managed. Overall I was most impressed with the quality of the fair.
