Young Georgians' attitude towards Europe very positive

In order to further strengthen the European brand and encourage young Georgians to consider diverse European countries as study destination, the consortium proposes to organise a one-day Study in Europe fair in Tbilisi, the capital city and main university centre. The target audience will be students of all levels, from high school to doctoral candidates. The consortium proposes to organise the fair in cooperation with the local education fair provider EduGuide, which is well known and appreciated by the target groups. The pavilion will have a clear separate visual identity and an additional independent communication campaign. This approach will guarantee a high number of visitors with a profile the universities are looking for and will increase the visibility of European higher education opportunities set alongside its main competitor countries and regions.

The Georgian higher education landscape consists of 55 HEIs, 20 of them in the public sector[1]. The biggest challenges for Georgian universities over the years have been chronic underfunding of HEIs, an ageing academic staff and the brain drain of highly qualified scientists. No Georgian university is ranked among the first 600 world-wide in the QS ranking and only one among the first 1,000.[2] To improve the quality of education, the government has committed to increasing the share of government expenditure on education in GDP from 3,85 (2017) to six percent by 2021. However, it cannot be assumed that the supply of high-quality study places in the country will meet the demand of qualified applicants in the medium term. This is all the more true since the number of 14-25 year olds will increase from the current 451,000 to 522,000 by 2035.[3]

Georgian students are internationally mobile, with an outbound mobility ratio of 6.5 per cent. The number of students abroad rose from 7,200 in 2013 to more than 9,700 in 2022[4]. Europe is popular; among the ten most important target countries are Germany, France, Greece, and the Czech Republic. The attitude not only of the young generation towards the EU is very positive. More than 80 per cent are in favor of EU membership.[5] More and more school graduates are interested in studying for a bachelor’s degree in Europe. Georgia is a cosmopolitan country with liberal legislation and visa policies. Georgian universities are very interested in international cooperation, teaching staff and students. Freedom of science is given and anchored in the constitution (top group A).

Since Georgia joined the Bologna Process in 2005, the country has made significant efforts to bring educational standards into line with the European higher education area. Important milestones on this path have recently been the accession of the National Center for Educational Quality Enhancement (NCEQE) to ENQA and the inclusion of NCEQE in the EQAR register. Georgian HEIs are very active in the Erasmus+ programme: until 2018, 30 CBHE projects have been implemented in Georgia, the country had top places in Erasmus+ credit mobility for four consecutive years (2018: 6th place among 141 partner countries) and was in top 20 EMJMD countries. The Erasmus+ scholarship opportunities are complemented by a government scholarship program. Since 2014, the International Education Centre has been providing grants for BA-, MA-, and PhD studies abroad (650 until 2018). More than 70 percent of the fellows chose a country within the EU.

A European degree has a high value in the local labour market. Since a European university degree significantly improves the chances on the domestic job market, many families are willing to raise the money for study abroad. Due to the low average monthly income (345 euros), EU countries with lower living costs and lower tuition fees are particularly attractive for Georgian students. Studying in EU countries is also favored by the fact that 19 of the 27 EU countries have an embassy or consulate in Georgia.
