On 17 November 2020, we celebrate World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED)! WAHED will take the form of a global conference series around the topic of ‘Access and Success in the Post Pandemic world’ and will feature a series of six events, each led by an organisation active in promoting equity in higher education within their own continent.

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) takes the lead in organising the Asia edition of WAHED titled “Access and Success for Marginalised Groups in Asian Higher Education in a Post Pandemic World” on Tuesday, 17 November 2020, 11.00AM-2PM Singapore time (GMT+8), online. Our event will introduce perspectives from Asia (covering South, Southeast, East Asia) on current (during COVID-19) and emerging (post- COVID 19) challenges related to access and success for marginalised groups in higher education. You can learn more about the event here: https://asef.org/projects/themes/education/5110-WAHED2020_Asia_Conference

We are looking for speakers representing the student/youth sector, who have a strong passion and interest in the topic and would be interested to speak at our event. We are looking for speakers to join either of the sessions below:

  • Women Students and Students from Lower Socio-economic, Rural and Refugee Backgrounds in Higher Education in Asia
