[Singapore] National University of Singapore – 17th AUN and 6th ASEAN+3 Educational Forum & Young Speakers’ Contest 2017 (UPDATE)


The AUN Educational Forum and Young Speakers Contest is one of the flagship youth activities of ASEAN University Network, or the AUN, which was first launched in 1998. This activity was previously known as AUN Educational and ASEAN Young Speakers Contest separately. However, at the 16th AUN-BOT Meeting in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the Board members agreed to merge the two activities into one to ensure cost-effectiveness as well as to intensify the learning outcome and impact to the students.

The  host  university  is  responsible  for  the organising and local arrangement including accommodations, local transportation, materials, and meals. The participants are requested to bear their own airfares to Singapore, travel insurance and any other associated costs of travel (e.g. visa costs)
