In 2018, a new program called Collaborative Education is initiated. Through partnership among academic institutions and industry, it is anticipated that networking and collaboration AUN/SEED-Net has built up for more than 15 years will be sustained and enhanced.

Applying member institutions are requested to form a partnership in a form of university consortium, which consists of 4 types of members. Each type is expected to utilize their own expertise in performing different roles in the consortium in order to deliver a set common outputs.

Given funding from AUN/SEED-Net, applying consortiums are empowered to design, to formulate, and to implement their own activities in order to achieve the common outputs. This is to ensure that the outputs truly fit and mutually benefit all the members.

As of today, six consortiums are awarded under this program. Among wide variety of academic activities offered, these consortiums feature scholarships, staff and student mobility schemes, international workshops and conferences, formulation of Double Degree programs, and hands-on research collaboration with private sectors.

For those who look for post-graduate scholarships with opportunities to work with real industry, or those who look for faculty and/or student mobility schemes, here are the list of the consortiums with the offers.
