Mobility and progress in Southeast Asian higher education

As of 2021, the Asian International Mobility for Students (AIMS) Programme, an initiative considered an unprecedented success in removing obstacles to student mobility in the region, reaches its 12th year. As studies cement the powerful role higher education plays in influencing international relations, expanding mobility between ASEAN higher education institutions is essential for developing greater understanding, co-operation and unity between countries.

In its 10th commemorative edition, founding editor of Higher Education in Southeast Asia and Beyond (HESB) Professor S. Gopinathan similarly discusses the necessity for greater faculty and student exchange as the foundation for furthering common regional goals in higher education.

Next week, distinguished experts from across ASEAN further expound on such themes, discussing pertinent issues on the future of ASEAN higher education. Sign up for The HEAD Foundation’s webinar The State of Higher Education in the Region here.

The 9th issue of HESB, The HEAD Foundation’s higher education publication, extensively covers issues of regional student mobility.

The 10th commemorative issue of HESB is now available, discussing pertinent issues in the state of higher education in the region.
