From 31st October to 1st November, China Education Expo took place in Shanghai. In order to popularize Hungarian higher education, the representatives of the University of Szeged (SZTE) and Central European University (CEU) also joined to the educational booth of the Consulate General of Hungary in Shanghai.

In a great part due to the Consulate General of Hungary, Hungarian universities could represent themselves at the expo for free. With the support of the Consulate the universities could also easily send their brochures and promotional gifts from Budapest to the Expo. Therefore the visitors could take the brochures and promotional gifts of the University of Eötvös Loránd (ELTE), the University of West Hungary (NYME), the University of Szeged (SZTE) and Budapest Business School (BGF). Thousands of students and parents visited the exhibition both days.

Lívia Szentmártoni, Consul for Culture and Education gave two lectures about Hungarian Higher Education and about Scholarship facilities at the Education Expo.
