What is SHARE?
SHARE is an EU Grant funded project with an overarching objective to strengthen regional cooperation, enhance the quality, competitiveness and internationalisation of ASEAN higher education institutions and students, contributing to an ASEAN Community beyond 2015. The main aim is to enhance cooperation between the EU and the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and to create lasting benefits from the harmonisation of higher education across ASEAN.
Who are the partners and what are they going to deliver?
A consortium led by British Council, comprising the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), EP-Nuffic, Campus France, the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and the European University Association (EUA) will be working between 2015 and 2018 with ASEAN counterparts to implement SHARE. There are 3 main components (called Result Areas) during the implementation of SHARE, as follows:
• Result 1 – Policy Dialogues: Led by British Council
• Result 2a and 2b – ASEAN Qualifications Reference Frameworks and ASEAN Quality Assurance: Led by DAAD working with European partners ENQA and EUA
• Result 3a – ASEAN Credit Transfer System (ACTS) & Result 3b – ASEAN-EU Credit Transfer Systems (AECTS): Led by Campus France
• Result 3c ACTS & AECTS Student Mobility with Scholarships: Led by EP-Nuffic
Who are the main Stakeholders?
• The European Union (EU), represented by the European Commission in Jakarta
• ASEAN Secretariat in general, represented by Education, Youth and Training Division (EYTD)
Who are the target groups?
SHARE is aimed at a cluster of target groups and beneficiaries. At regional level, these include ASEAN agencies involved in the harmonisation of higher education sectors such as:
• AQAFHE Task Forces
• SEAMEO RIHED
At national level, target groups include:
• government departments responsible for overseeing higher education sector
• university leaders associations
• higher education institutions with ambitions for internationalisation and desire to improve the quality of education provision
Students and employers will directly benefit from SHARE as recipients of quality academic programmes delivering higher level skills and knowledge, improved mobility (borderless education) and enhanced employability skills.
What are the impact?
By the end of SHARE in early 2019, the following outcomes are expected in higher education in ASEAN member states:
• Increased and enhanced mobility for university students across ASEAN through improved qualification frameworks, quality assurance, an ASEAN-wide credit transfer system and scholarship scheme.
• Improved equality in opportunities for exchange, as students benefit from SHARE’s technical assistance across ASEAN member countries, thereby improving connectivity across higher education in ASEAN.
• Strengthened ties between ASEAN universities and increasing opportunities for EU-ASEAN university partnerships.
