6th ASEF Rector's Conference and Student's Forum (#ARC6)

The Sixth edition of the ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC6) organized by Asia Europe Foundation (ASEF) will be held on 9-13 October in Singapore which address the topic of “Future Universities and Graduate: Quality Education Beyond the Horizon“. The conference will invite over 280 representatives from academia, governments, business and industry, students and youth associations as well as NGOs and IGOs.

ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC) has been a multi-stakeholder dialogue platform for university leaders, business representatives, policy makers and students to discuss higher education issues and shape the education landscape in Asia-Europe. The results deriving from ARC, including policy recommendations and research, feed into the preparations of the ASEM Education Ministers’ Meeting (ASEMME) and also contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), with a focus on Goal 4 and 8 (on inclusive and quality education, and decent work and economic growth respectively).

The ARC6 consists of 2 programme elements: 1) a Students’ Forum 2) followed by a Rectors’ Conference. Close linkages between the Rectors’ and the Students’ is assured through a synergic exchange in which 4 Rectors’ attend the Students’ Forum as Mentors and 4 Students’ participate throughout the Rectors’ Conference.

More information and relevant documents of ARC6 can be found at ASEF website.
