The Asia-Pacific Association for International Education (APAIE) was established in Seoul, South Korea in 2004 by a Founding Committee consisting of thirteen university representatives from across the Asia Pacific region, and has since expanded to become a thriving association. APAIE aims to encourage greater cooperation between institutions, to enrich and support international programmes, activities and exchanges, and to promote the value of international education across the region and beyond. In doing so, APAIE devotes itself to the principles of mutual respect, diversity and collective progress.
The APAIE Conference and Exhibition brings together thousands of professionals who are passionate about international education from across the globe to the Asia-Pacific region to network, improve professional skills and learn about new developments in international education.
Conference delegates include:
Officers responsible for international mobility of students, faculty and staff
Government representatives and policymakers
National and regional international education organizations and associations
Leaders in interculturalism, internationalization and the student experience
Leaders in advancing opportunities for indigenous and newcomer communities in international education
Presidents, vice chancellors, directors and principals in higher education
The APAIE Conference and Exhibition debuted in 2006 with 400 delegates and now attracts over 2,500 delegates. The growing attendance each year at the Conference reflects the burgeoning interest in the region and recognition of the Asia Pacific's important role in international education.
APAIE is currently working on a new membership programme. While the membership programme is under development, no APAIE memberships will be available. We thank you for your patience during this time and we look forward to introducing the new APAIE Membership Programme to you in due course.
