SEAMEO RIHED was delighted to participate in the 2nd ASEAN Student Mobility Forum in Yangon, Myanmar last 28-29 August 2018.

Ms. Phunyanuch Pattanotai, Programme Director of SEAMEO RIHED, participated during the session The Big Picture: Mobility Schemes in ASEAN and the Future. She served as one of the panelists who enlightened the audience about SEAMEO RIHED’s ASEAN International Mobility for Students (AIMS) Programme. Ms. Pattanotai was joined by Ms. Ms Najihah binti Ahmad Lutfi, an AIMS Alumna who shared her experiences while participating in the AIMS Programme.

Moreover, SEAMEO RIHED was also part of the panel session Mobility: Credit Where it is Due where existing credit transfer systems used and applied in mobility schemes in the region were explained to the stakeholders. In addition, this session also emphasised the importance of QA in building trust and mutual recognition among countries and higher education institutions.

After the insightful sessions, outcome of this Forum was a finalized statement from the students after the 2nd Student ASEAN Student Mobility Forum. The document contained appreciation and recommendations from the perspective of the students which will be forwarded to the ASEAN Senior Officials Meeting on Education (SOM-ED) for regional education policymakers’ consideration.

SEAMEO RIHED would like to thank SHARE for inviting us to this fruitful and remarkable Forum!
