Comprised of 44 countries, Europe is the world’s second-smallest continent. Spanning over an area of around 10,180,000 square kilometres, it is surrounded by bodies of water on three sides: the Arctic Ocean in the north, the Atlantic Ocean in the west, and the Mediterranean Sea in the south.

The population of Europe is more than 700 million, and the most spoken languages include Russian, English, German, Turkish and Italian. Europe is noted for its cultural diversity, largely as a result of its rich history and the migration patterns of countless groups over many years. It is recognised as the birthplace of Western civilisation, largely originating from Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.

The region has the highest GPR per capita in the world, as many countries within Europe have robust economies, including Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Italy. As the wealthiest continent in the world, Europe is hugely influential in key global affairs. It has a remarkably high GDP of around $17.1 trillion, representing around 1/6 of the global economy.

Why Choose Europe?

There are so many reasons to choose Europe as a location for employment or business. According to the OECD Better Life Index, the continent ranks highly in terms of life expectancy, employment opportunities and quality of education. While each country within Europe has a diverse historical background, there are a number of cultural similarities stemming from art, architecture, literature, music and philosophy.

Aside from a rich and diverse culture, Europe is also well-known for the employment opportunities it presents. Sectors such as construction, engineering, healthcare, IT and software are thriving, and there are plenty of opportunities for a promising career in these sectors (amongst others). European companies offer a number of unemployment benefits, better work-life balance, and excellent social security schemes.

English is widely spoken across the continent, thus making movement between countries straightforward. Transport links between the UK, mainland Europe and the rest of the world are fast, advanced and convenient.
