On 7 and 8 October, Study in Wales exhibited at L'Etudiant higher education exhibition in Paris. This is one of the largest study exhibitions in France for students considering studying abroad, with last year's event attracting over 2,300 onsite visitors and more than 8,000 visitors to the accompanying online exhibition. 

We were also joined by some of our great universities - University of South Wales, Bangor University, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Aberystwyth University and Cardiff University, which gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about Wales, our universities and scholarships available.  

While we were in Paris, we also visited the International School of Paris, British School of Paris and the Institute Notre-Dame Collège to showcase the benefits of studying at a Welsh university to the pupils, ahead of making their university applications.   

We had a great time with our colleagues from Wales’ universities, and hope that the students we met at ‘L’Etudiant and during the school visits enjoyed learning more about Wales.
