Are you eager to learn, be challenged and get new friends from all over Asia & Europe? Join #ASEFSU21 crew for a summer university taking you to Australia & New Zealand!

The ASEF Summer University (ASEFSU) is a 2-week experiential learning journey and “Interdisciplinary Innovathon” , that will take place from 27 January to 10 February 2018 in Melbourne and Christchurch. It’s open for Asian and European students and young professionals, between 18 and 30 years old with strong command of English.

The 21st ASEF Summer University will be conducted under the theme "Youth with Disabilities: Shaping Inclusive ASEM Societies" and will offer a mix of practical team exercises, thought-provoking lectures, group research and experiential learning.


ASEFSU21 consists of 3 phases:

Phase 1: Online Preparatory phase (ca. 6 weeks)

Participants will actively take part in a MOOC-like experience, including webinars and online crash courses to familiarise with the topics of the project. Participants will also be assigned individual and group exercises which require a commitment of 2–3 hours per week.

Phase 2: "Interdisciplinary Innovation" in Australia and New Zealand (ca. 2 weeks)

The on-site phase consists of active training sessions, quality lectures and exciting study visits where the participants will discover and deepen their knowledge on the shaping of inclusive ASEM societies.

Phase 3: Spin-off activities and launching prototypes

All prototypes developed on site, analogue and digital, will be analysed and tested after the project by the relevant stakeholders and communities engaged in ASEFSU21.


There is no registration or participation fee.

The organisers will provide participants with travel subsidy, accommodation and meals.
