EU scholarships support graduate mobility in ASEAN countries

The EU Support to Higher Education in the ASEAN Region programme - SHARE - aims to raise the quality of higher education in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asia Nations) region.

Student mobility plays an important role in the development of higher education in ASEAN. Specifically, SHARE seeks to boost the mobility of students among ten countries, with the hope that they will continue to sustain the region's impressive development.   

Inspired by the European Bologna Process and Erasmus, the British Council and partners have established a scholarship scheme to support the region’s graduates of tomorrow. As well as assisting with mobility, the scholarship is designed to test the application of an ASEAN-wide credit transfer systems.

The European Union (EU) and ASEAN would now like to announce the opening of the second batch of scholarships for the January to July 2017 intake.

Undergraduate students in ASEAN countries who are interested in studying for one semester in another ASEAN country are invited now to apply for one of the 125 full scholarships available.

Each scholarship provides a fully-funded, short-term exchange of undergraduate students from selected universities across the region.

H.E. Mr. Vongthep Arthakaivalvatee, ASEAN Deputy Secretary-General for the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community, believes the scheme supports current integration efforts in the region:

“This special partnership with the EU allows us to empower talented students to pursue their chosen careers and exchange invaluable insights and experience. An effective regional higher education system centred on an ASEAN scholarship scheme for students is a key element in promoting people connectivity.”
