Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In East Asia, higher education has been developing significantly in a quantitative aspect with the surge of demand, and increasing activities in regional collaboration. Since the 1997 economic crisis, with a growing need of regionalization in Asia, the discussion of collaboration in context of higher education was also initiated in the political area (e.g. at the East Asia Summit) For East Asian universities, not only conventional cross-border activities (student exchanges), but also various forms of “cross-border collaborative degree programs” (e.g. twinning, double/joint degree programs) have been increased recently and they are expected to be more active in the future.
This paper aims to examine current characteristics of cross-border collaborative degree programs in East Asia region (ASEAN, plus five countries, Japan, China, Korea, Australia, New Zealand), with a focus on universities’ views on these programs in terms of the excepted outcomes and challenges. It will also analyze distinct roles in enhancing regional collaboration and integration (if there are).
This paper uses the data come from the original dataset of a survey for cross-border collaborative degree programs, conducted by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency Research Institute (JICA-RI) in 2009/2010. We identified 1,023 collaboration degree programs from 300 “leading” universities in East Asia region. We sent a questionnaire via email and received 254 responses from all East Asian countries.
The findings related to the “challenges or risks” of cross-border collaborative degree programs suggest that most of East Asian universities encounter risks of recruiting students and resolving language issues. Beyond country, however, expected outcomes and challenges appear differently depending on collaboration types, location of actual studying and fund source etc.
