'CAMPUS Asia' is a government-led initiative with the aim of strengthening exchange and cooperation with quality assurance among universities in Japan, China and Korea. Ten pilot programs were conducted among Japanese, Chinese, and Korean universities from 2011 to 2015. With the pilot programs’ high achievements having been recognized by the governments of Japan, China, and Korea, 17 programs have been in place as full-fledged (mode 2) programs since 2016.
In order to promote assurance and improvement of the quality of international collaborative academic programs, Japan’s National Institution for Academic Degrees and Quality Enhancement of Higher Education (NIAD-QE) along with China’s Higher Education Evaluation Center of the Ministry of Education (HEEC) and the Korean Council for University Education (KCUE) conducts the monitoring of the programs as a quality assurance initiative.
The monitoring project focuses on identifying good practices from the
perspective of quality of education with the objective of disseminating them
widely at home and abroad.
