To accommodate the importance of the activity, thus the committee organized ACTS (Asean Credit Transfer System) which bridges the curriculum and learning systems in its member universities. Present in the form of ACTS website, it serves as a tool to facilitate ASEAN students to gain any kind of information and opportunities about exchange program in selected universities in Southeast Asia. The website provides information about the mechanism, procedure, documents required, the available subject, and scholarships offered by the universities members. The credit system itself is also considered a factor that can facilitate and promote mobility of students and academic exchange among institutions and countries. Thus, with the presence of AUN-ACTS, it is possible for the students to brings the spirit of ASEAN and to spread understanding and harmony in regional context.

Many ASEAN universities have established the credit system generally at the undergraduate level to display students’ workload within universities. However, 2011 is the first year for Universitas Airlangga to participate in the activity as the new member of AUN. This is also the time to implement the credit system in the university. Students can easily acces to the knowledge and gain education advantage from around the world. In this case, the effective credit transfer system and its quality assurance will be an important factor to facilitate mobility and raise a number of exchange activities at in-country level, between ASEAN universities or beyond the region. Regarding to the agreement about student mobility in ASEAN, the responsibilities of participating universities under the AUN Student Exchange Programme shall be as follows:

  • Ø Home universities will minimally provide:
    • assistance in facilitating and making travel arrangements of their outgoing students
    • Ø Host universities will minimally provide:
      • tuition fee waiver
      • arrangements for accommodation
      • assistance in obtaining student entry visas and student permits
      • assistance for airport transfers
      • assistance in the safety and general welfare of the incoming exchange students

As agreed at the 3rd ACTS Meeting, the ACTS grading scale will be based on the achievement ranking of a student in a given assessment. Students will be divided into 5 subgroups:

 

  • ACTS Credits:
  • 1 Full Academic Year = 60 credits
