About the ASEM Education Compendium for Higher Education

The ASEM Education Compendium for Higher Education provides a comprehensive overview of the multiple academic systems of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) partner countries. This tool shall help staff and educators from academic institutions, located in ASEM member states, to compare the various academic systems and to find helpful information needed for co-operations with higher education institutions from ASEM member states.

The aim of the ASEM Education Compendium is to improve transparency on the diverse educational landscape of the ASEM Education Process and to establish a valid source of reference for higher education institutions.

Data Collection

Compendium data has been compiled and reviewed by the ASEM Expert Group on interregional Credit Transfer Mechanisms and Learning Outcome Systems, with the help of the ASEM Education Secretariat.
Since 2016, this Expert Group meets regularly to facilitate dialogue and promote cooperation in the field of credit transfer mechanisms and learning outcomes systems. The participating members have continuously collected relevant information on their various higher education systems with the aim of establishing a common understanding of terminology and concepts of the ASEM education systems.

The data provided in the tool will be updated annually. The Expert Group and the ASEM Education Secretariat are continuously working on expanding the Compendium and adding further country profiles.
