ASEAN International Mobility for Students Program (AIMS)

The ASEAN International Mobility for Students (AIMS) programme, formally known as M-I-T, aims to create a vibrant student mobility programme for citizens of all SEAMEO member countries. It has a long history, emerging from the Malaysia-Indonesia-Thailand (M-I-T) Student Mobility Pilot Project which was initiated in 2009 as collaboration between the governments of the three countries and SEAMEO RIHED.  The M-I-T project was a pilot project. Following the success of the pilot project, it is now being turned into a fully-fledged ASEAN programme. Additional Southeast Asian nations are now invited to join the efforts of the three existing countries, and collectively develop a regional Southeast Asian student mobility programme. This section provides a background to the student mobility pilot project, including key partners, objective and key events.

ASEAN International Mobility for Students (AIMS) Programme has been at the core of SEAMEO RIHED’s educational programmes as indicated in our 4th Five-Year Development Plan to cultivate globalized human resources. To SEAMEO RIHED, student mobility has always been one of the key strategic elements of cooperation leading to the development of a harmonised higher education environment among countries in Southeast Asia. By 2015, it has been ambitiously agreed as a short-term goal among AIMS member countries that at least 500 students will be mobilised across the region, with expanding disciplines as well as membership.

Thailand's commission of Higher Education designated five universities, which offer instruction in Engling or ae international programs, for each of the five fields of study: Agriculture, Tourism & Hospitality, Food Science, Arts, and Culture & Business.

The exchange period should be for at least one term, with a minimum of three subjects or 9 - 12 credits. Thailand's Commission of Higher Education offers scholarships to outbound students, including round-trip air fares (economy class only), international health insurance and living expenses at 800 $ USD per month.
