Attracting non-EU students, researchers and interns to the EU: final vote  

Harmonised EU entry and residence rules that will make it easier and more attractive for students and researchers from third countries to study or do research at EU universities are up for a final vote on Wednesday. The new rules, informally agreed by Parliament and Council in November last year, also have provisions to clarify and improve conditions for non-EU interns, volunteers, school pupils and au pairs, so as to facilitate cultural exchanges.
