WEBINARS

The Fair’s digital platform offers students based in Singapore and beyond the chance to participate in close to 30 webinar sessions. Students will speak with education counsellors from the participating European countries as well as university representatives to learn more about study options available to them in Europe. The Webinar sessions will cover topics such as living in Europe and adapting to European cultures, the university application process, the overview of specific university courses to acquiring global skills through travel and study abroad.

ERASMUS+ AND OTHER EU PROGRAMMES

Study In Europe also highlights and helps promote EU education programmes such as Erasmus+, SHARE and EURAXESS.

2021 marks the 34th year of the EU's student exchange programme Erasmus+, which enables university students to study or intern in a European country. It offers students a chance to broaden their horizons as they explore European cultures and gain insights into Europe. Erasmus+ funding includes support for education and training of staff, youth workers, and partnerships between universities, colleges, schools, enterprises, and not-for-profit organizations. The Erasmus+ Diaries | The European Journey webinar conducted as a

conversation between Adrian Veale, Policy Officer at the European Commission and Mertice Ho, a trainee with the EU Delegation in Singapore will provide students in-depth insights into the programme.

At Study In Europe, students can also learn more about SHARE, the ASEAN-EU project Supporting Higher Education in the ASEAN Region. Funded by the European Union, SHARE encourages student mobility within the ASEAN region. With a funding of EUR 10 million, SHARE has already provided 400 scholarships for ASEAN students to study in other ASEAN countries, replicating the Erasmus+ intra-EU scholarship scheme. At the Fair, SHARE will present the Webinar titled SHARE Programme: Intra-ASEAN Student Exchange Scholarships.

For the first time, Study In Europe will include the participation of EURAXESS, a platform for researchers, entrepreneurs, universities and businesses to interact with each other.  A Webinar titled EURAXESS – Your Gateway to the European Research Area. How to do a funded PhD in Europe: Roundtable with Singaporean doctoral candidates will be presented at the Fair. EURAXESS connects researchers in ASEAN with Europe through a research portal that provides a range of information and support services to researchers who wish to study or work in Europe or stay connected to it.

In partnership with the University of Luxembourg, we are pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for students from South-East Asia that would like to realize an exchange of one or two semesters at the University of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg met en lumière son héritage culinaire unique lors de la fête de la Francophonie

 

4 mars 2021

Every year in March, the members of the Francophonie gather around the world to promote not only the French language and the diversity of Francophone cultures but also the values that are at the heart of the Francophonie: solidarity, humanism, peace, democracy, human rights and diversity. Expect a month filled with theater plays, concerts, exhibitions, conferences, cinema, or even unique educational activities that will be happening throughout the countries of the region!

This year, we decided to add a culinary note to Luxembourg’s engagement with the region. Indeed, on Tuesday the 16th of March, the Embassy of Luxembourg will participate in the Francophone-EAT! – a series of 8 online masterclasses with renowned Chefs from different countries of the Francophonie. Together with Luxembourgish TV chef and food journalist Anne Faber, we are looking forward to bringing a true Luxembourgish classic called “Kniddelen” – our version of dumplings – accompanied by a spicy apple compote to South-East Asia.

Since starting her award-winning food blog Anne’s Kitchen in 2010, Anne has written 5 cookbooks and hosts a regular cooking TV show in Luxembourg. Heavily influenced by her travels across the world, and in particular Asia, Anne has dedicated one entire season of her show to the culinary delights she discovered in Bangkok, Hong Kong and Tokyo. She trained as a chef at Alain Ducasse in Paris and has been cooking for events at Luxembourg embassies across the world, including Beijing, Tokyo and Washington DC.

In her video, Anne will guide you step-by-step through the recipe, share personal anecdotes and extracts from her show and talk about her experience cooking this particular dish with students at the Lao National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality.

The event is free for all and the recipe will be posted (in EN and FR) along with the video on the 16th of March on the Facebook and Twitter pages of the Embassy of Luxembourg.

Finally, Luxembourg will also once again promote its young yet growing animated film industry by screening the movie “Les Hirondelles de Kaboul” on the 11th of March at the Alliance Française in Singapore. This critically acclaimed, animated film (2019) portrays the stories of two couples living under Taliban rule in Kabul in the nineties and the ways their fates become intertwined by a dangerous act of humanity. The film will be screened in French with English subtitles. We pleased to confirm that the screening will be followed by a short live Q&A session with the director of the film Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec. You can purchase your ticket via the website of the Alliance Française in Singapore.

Have a look below at the diverse and rich programmes of the Francophonie Festival in Thailand and Singapore.

Screening of "Les hirondelles de Kaboul"

 

2 décembre 2020

In the run up to the international Human Rights Day on December 10th, the Embassy organized a screening of "Les Hirondelles de Kaboul" in partnership with the Alliance Française in Bangkok.

A critically acclaimed 2019 film directed by Zabou Breitman and Éléa Gobé Mévellec, the animation captures the poetry of Algerian author Yasmina Khadra's 2002 novel of the same name. Co-produced in Luxembourg, the graphically rich film portrays the stories of two couples living under Taliban rule in Kabul in the nineties and the ways their fates become intertwined by a dangerous act of humanity.

The animated films sector has in fact grown rapidly in Luxembourg. Today, there are half a dozen animation studios active in the Grand Duchy. They either develop their own productions or co-productions or hire out their services to foreign productions. Support mechanisms and incentives for audiovisual production have worked well, thereby helping to establish a genuine industrial platform at a very high level.

The fact that Luxembourgish co-productions 'Song of the Sea' (Mélusine Productions) or 'Mr Hublot' (Zeilt Productions) were nominated for Academy Awards, with the latter winning Luxembourg's first Oscar in 2014, illustrates the distance the animation sector has covered in the country in just a few years' time. In fact, the TIME magazine recently selected their 10 best movies of the year - among which two Luxembourgish co-productions, including the animated feature film "Wolfwalkers".

 

European Language Café 2020

25 septembre 2020

Le 25 septembre 2020, la veille du jour des langues européennes, l'ambassade du Luxembourg à Bangkok a participé à l'European Languages Café, organisé par la Délégation de l'Union Européenne et onze ambassades et organisations culturelles européennes : l'Allemagne, la Belgique, l'Espagne, la Finlande, la France, la Hongrie, l'Italie, la Pologne, le Portugal, la Tchéquie et la Suède. Étant donné que le multilinguisme fait partie intégrante de l'identité nationale luxembourgeoise, l'ambassadeur Jean-Paul Senninger s'est réjoui du grand nombre d'étudiants thaïs qui ont participé à cet évènement pour célébrer, ensemble, la vigueur et la diversité des langues européennes tout en ayant l'occasion de pratiquer leurs compétences langagières.
