  • Driven by the force of globalization and internationalization, student mobility has enormous reaching benefits in enhancing academic quality, creating international networks among academia, minimizing brain drain and creating brain gain in the region, as well as promoting global awareness for students.
  • -In Europe, since 1980s, the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) was first established under the Erasmus Program as a credit transfer system. -In Asia-Pacific region, Credit Transfer Schemes called UCTS was introduced and developed by University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific or UMAP in 1993. - For ASEAN, ASEAN University Networks (AUN) established a credit transfer system to support an open ASEAN area of higher education called ASEAN Credit Transfers System (ACTS) in 2009
  • The question remains: What is the suitable system for all HEIs in all member countries in SEA region? So far, UCTS and ACTS is derived from ECTS. So which system would be better for us UCTS or ACTS?
  • At the sub-regional level in Southeast Asia, in 2009, the importance of higher education harmonization in creating a process or mechanism that would facilitate and enhance a richer learning experience, greater mobility, as well as, providing a wider access for employment outside the country of origin were recognized as a key concern at the 3 rd Directors General/Secretary General/Commissioner on Higher Education in Southeast Asian Region Meeting, Bangkok, Thailand.
  • Current status of the CTS in the region- 2 groups, Beginning Stage and Implementing Stage

    15. 15. OUTCOME What to do together? The Six Recommended Key Principles for Credit Transfer System in Proposing SEA-CTS, that were proposed and agreed at the Southeast Asian Policy Forum: Regional Credit Transfer System: Lesson Learnt from UCTS, are: 1) SEA-CTS is to be used for credits transfer in higher education program; 2) SEA-CTS is to be used to transfer credits for single courses or groups of courses in higher education programs or equivalent; 3) Only grades attaining the following levels or above shall be transferred: C or 2.00 score level or equivalent for a Bachelor’s Degree, and B or 3.00 score level or equivalent, or the S score level for Graduate’s Degree; 4) Content of the credits to be transferred should be comparable to three quarters of the course being credited; 5) For a Bachelor’s Degree, credits to be transferred shall not exceed one-third of the total credits of a study program into which they are preferred; and 6) A transferred credits shall not be included in the calculation for the cumulative grade point average (optional) SEAMEO RIHED ’ s Southeast Asian Policy Forum: Lesson Learned from UCTS
    16. 16. Future direction of Southeast Asian Credits Transfer System The future on establishing Southeast Asian Credit Transfer System (SEA-CTS) that applicable to all HEIs in all member countries in the region might be too complicated and take a long time to develop. Yet, it is possible and the benefits return from achieving is enormous. If all member countries in Southeast Asian Region collaborating closely and persistently implementing together with other prioritized areas, i.e. Quality Assurance Framework and Student Mobility , enhancement toward the harmonization in the Region, the goal for having SEA-CTS established is not beyond reality. What to do together?
