AUN-SUN/SixERS Study and Visit Programme: “Discovery, Diversity, Dynamics” (3Ds)



Q3 (tentative)


Participants: Japanese students from the ASEAN+3 UNet


To let Japanese students experience hands-on learning of ASEAN cultures


The Six Universities Network/International Education and Research System, Japan (SUN/SixERS) is a consortium of six Japanese national universities—Chiba University, Kanazawa University, Kumamoto University, Nagasaki University, Niigata University and Okayama University.

The partnership agreement between the AUN and SUN/SixERS was officially established in April 2013 to explore the possibility of collaborative framework on student mobility, student placement and internship. Exchanges with overseas partner universities, thus, are among SUN/SixERS’ current initiatives and are keys to encourage a dynamic development and to achieve the anticipated milestone.

This Study and Visit Programme began in 2013 as a collaborative effort between the AUN and SUN/SixERS. It is an annual two-week student mobility programme that offers students a unique opportunity to learn and experience ASEAN by exploring its diversity and earning inโ€depth knowledge in various aspects through the lectures, onโ€site exposures, cultural workshops and organisation visits.

The preservation of cultural prestiges and values is evermore important with the current era of globalization and a heightened desire to develop a cultural identity. The culmination of cultural authenticity in such an era provides an individual with the necessary discipline and skill set to navigate as leaders in the 21st century.

The event aims to explore the vast transmission and perseveration of knowledge, customs, and cultures through the act of storytelling through the generations, and for ASEAN and Japan students to share amongst each other of their own.

Thus, the theme of this event is set to be: The Importance of Storytelling in Preserving Self-Identity and Building a Resilient Community. ๐ŸŽ
The three-day programme consists of several activities such as Cultural Dialogue by an expert student researcher, an immersive Virtual ASEAN Culture Heritage Tour, ASEAN-Japan Traditional Fables and Tales, and more exciting and engaging activities!๐Ÿช„
