The ASEM Work Placement Programme (ASEM WPP) was established for promoting the exchange of talent between Europe and Asia within the ASEM education process. Currently 2 European countries (Germany and Belgium (Flemish Community) and 3 Asian countries (Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Thailand) participate in this programme.
The programme in Flanders focuses on work placements for students enrolled in higher education (EQF-level 5, 6 or 7), who want to perform a work placement in Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia or Thailand.
Through an open call of applications, 30 students from 6 different University Colleges were selected for a work placement between 2 and 4 months in a Thai or Indonesian company. The Flemish Ministry of Education and Training provides a scholarship to these students to support their travel costs.
The Work Placement Programme hopes that more countries can contribute to the programme throught selecting, supporting and sponsoring students for a work expierence in the other continent. More information about the call can be found on the ASEM WPP Website.
