Program History

In 2010, the governments of Malaysia-Indonesia-Thailand (M-I-T) and SEAMEO RIHED launched a multi-lateral collaborative programme to promote student mobility in the Southeast Asian Region. With expansion, the name was changed to ASEAN International Mobility for Students (AIMS) Programme. To date, 59 universities from 7 countries join together to promote students’ mobility across the region in the field of Agriculture, Engineering, Economics, Food Science and Technology, International Business, Language and Culture, and Tourism and Hospitality.

Last October 2014, University of Tsukuba started to accommodate students from partner universities to study in Japan and gain equivalent credits through Trans-ASEAN Global Agenda Education (TAG) Program. TAG Program is part of the Japanese government support in Reinvention Japan Project that links with AIMS Programme made by ASEAN Universities.
