Mumbai: Following a successful showing in December 2022, Uni-Italia's exclusive Study In Italy fair organised in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Mumbai is back again in November 2023. Uni-Italia, which is the official Italian centre promoting higher education in Italy under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is set to conduct IDOHE 2023 (Italian Days On Higher Education) on November 5.
The IDOHE fair will be organised at St Regis, Mumbai, between 12 PM-4 PM, wherein over 15 Italian universities catering to varied academic fields, the Consulate General of Italy in Mumbai, the Cultural Promotion office of the Consulate General of Italy in Mumbai, and the Italian Lecturer for Italian Language Classes will be present to meet Indian students.
The university representatives, who are officials of the institutes, will help students explore Italy's academic offerings, interact with them, and showcase presentations on course options, application, and visa procedures. Students can discover scholarship opportunities (merit and income-based) while getting tips on how to ensure a smooth admission process.
"Our goal is to offer students a unique occasion to discover study opportunities in Italy directly from the Italian University Representatives, to learn how to apply for their scholarship and visas, and to avoid failures in the process. Moreover, the event will help students to meet fellow peers as well as representatives from institutional bodies of Italy in India such as Uni-Italia, the Consulate General of Italy along with its Cultural office, leading them to have a real taste of what Italy is about," said Federica Maria Giove, Director, Uni-Italia, India.
