The ARC6 Students’ Forum is a hub for Asian and European student policy enthusiasts and practitioners.
The Forum takes the shape of a 3-dimensional conference setting combining: facts & research, stories & conversations, with policy & action Programme highlights include plenary sessions with thought-provoking speakers, workshops and policy-drafting working groups which result in the ARC6 Students’ Forum Policy Recommendations.
The recommendations will later be presented at the ARC6 Rectors’ Conference and the 6th ASEM Education Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM ME6). ARC6 consists of 2 programme elements:
- Students’ Forum (9-12 October 2017) followed by
- Rectors’ Conference (12-13 October 2017)
As the ARC6 Students’ Forum is organised on the side-line of the ARC6 Rectors’ Conference, a ½ day joint agenda will enable direct interactions and exchange of views among all ARC6 participants.
The ARC6 Students’ Forum is an ideal platform that recognises the value of higher education collaborations and brings ideas and suggestions to the policy table.
The 6th edition of ARC – themed “Future Universities and Graduates: Quality Education Beyond the Horizon” – gathers high-level representatives from academia, governments, business and industry, students and student associations as well as IOs and NGOs.
Key characteristics of ARC:
- Engagement in the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Education Process, including the bi-annual ASEM Education Ministers’ Meetings (ASEM MEs)
- Opportunity to shape the evolving Asia-Europe educational landscape, from policy recommendations to thematically responsive capacity trainings
- Experimental higher education conference fusing content-focused session with hands-on workshops
