The idea behind the festival

Elab Education Festival is an event which celebrates studying abroad. Every year, the festival brings together representatives of universities from all over the world, graduates who have achieved success thanks to their overseas education, parents and, above all, young people who are now starting to plan their adventures with abroad education. Elab Education Festival  is for those who want to get first-hand knowledge about educational opportunities available to them while studying abroad. The unique programme of Elab Education Festival offers a wide range of open lectures, workshops, and motivational speeches. Visitors can participate in discussions and workshops, talk to mentors from the world’s best universities and get a preview of what university life looks like.
