A. ABOUT ACUCA
the Association of Christian Universities and Colleges in Asia (ACUCA) was established in December 1976 by a group of enthusiastic Asian Christian university presidents, who under the auspices of the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia (UBCHEA), decided that there was a need for a formal association. Today ACUCA has grown into a network of 54 colleges and universities. The Association, through cooperation, mutual support and encouragement, endeavors to help Christian universities and colleges in Asia:
- develop and maintain their Christian character
- enrich the quality of their educational programs and those of the other institutions of learning
- re-examine the relevance of their objectives and programs in relation to the needs of a changing society.
Currently, ACUCA has 54 member institutions from 7 countries/regions of Asia, namely Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand.
B. ABOUT SMS ACUCA
In pursuit of the above purposes, the Association promotes and facilitates the exchange of students among member institutions. Established in 2002, the ACUCA Student Mobility Scheme aims to foster a better understanding of Asian communities and cultures among ACUCA students. Under the scheme, member institutions that have courses taught in English in either regular semesters or summer sessions are invited to exchange tuition waivers to enable their students to study tuition-free at an institution outside of their own country for a semester or during the summer.
Subsidies are also available to students from the ACUCA SMS member institutions.
