MALAYSIA has offered to share its experience and expertise in developing a "diffuse framework" for internationalisation of education in the move towards the Asean Single Window in education collaboration among member countries.
Malaysia's Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said as ASEAN Single Window constitutes one of the mechanisms to realising the ASEAN Community by 2015, it should be more attractive and accessible to all, providing excellence, quality education with high labour market relevance.
"This Single Window must also be flexible enough to allow permeability between the different education systems.
"In this regard, Malaysia strongly believes in the need for the development of a 'diffuse framework' for the internationalisation of education. Student mobility programmes with credit transfer system between universities in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand constitute one of the forward-looking initiatives under this framework," he said at the Seventh Asean Education Ministers Meeting (7th ASED) here, yesterday.
The ASEAN Single Window is the environment where national single windows of member countries operate and integrate.
Malaysia, he said believed that this single lens would definitely further strengthen regional cooperation on education among ASEAN member countries. Bernama
