ISLAMABAD: More than 70 young students from across the country have been selected for the
European Union (EU)s Erasmus programme.
The programme facilitates young students from around the world who would have an
opportunity to pursue a masters degree from different universities across Europe.
The selected students from Pakistan would be studying a range of subjects including agriculture,
energy, biotechnology, business studies, engineering, telecommunications, economic cooperation
and political science.
EU Ambassador Jean-François Cautain hosted a pre-departure brief and said “the mobility that
the EU has encouraged since its inception provides young people with greater opportunities and
equal access to resources and knowledge.”
He added that “This has greatly contributed to raising the quality of academia, research and
innovation throughout Europe.”
