Following the 1st ASEM Education Ministers’ Meeting in (ASEM ME1) in 2008 in Berlin, the ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC) was established to serve as a multi-stakeholder dialogue platform for university leaders, policy makers and education practitioners, business representatives and students. ARC is recognised as the Official Dialogue Partner of the ASEM Education Ministers Meetings (ASEM MEs). Its results, including policy recommendations and research, feed into the preparation of ASEM MEs, which ARC rectors and student representatives have been also invited to attend.
The 6th ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC6) will focus on the topic “Future-ready Universities and Graduates: Quality Education beyond the Horizon”. ASEF will organise ARC6 in partnership with the Singapore Management University (SMU) from 9-13 October 2017. The Students’ Forum will take place from 9-12 October 2017, followed by the Rectors’ Conference from 12-13 October 2017.
The Open Call for Application for the Students’ Forum has just been launched. Deadline for application is on Sunday, 16 July 2017.
