Primary Education Secondary Education Higher Education Adult Education Other Education TES is already a major business in some countries. The largest share of international TES takes the form of students traveling to study abroad. Since 1995, the importance of TES has grown dramatically. There has been an explosive growth in

international TES, covering all modes of supply including cross-border e-learning activities and the establishment of campuses and teaching facilities abroad. SOUTHEAST ASIA REGION -?population 540 million POPULATION

Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand Observers Cambodia, Lao PDR, Vietnam General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) Member Thailand (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Lao PDR, and

Vietnam) Even though most of SEA countries have not made any committments to GATS, since the governments are free to liberalize unilaterally without committed to the GATS there has been a growing international TES in SEA. Singapore and Malaysia are major importers of transnational education. TES in SEA

Consumption Abroad (Australia, Canada, USA, Europe, New Zealand, Asia, etc) Presence of commercial ( establishment of local branch, satellite campuses, representative offices, twinning partnerships, franchising arrangements) Movement of natural persons (professors, teachers, researchers, principals traveling to SEA to provide service) Cross Border Supply (distance education, elearning, virtual universities, education software) SINGAPORE Two types of transnational education : external

DE and foreign university branch campuses. Enrollment grows from 13,900 students (1997) to 25,400 (1999). In 1998 55 % enrolled in degrees courses awarded by British institutions and 40 % by Australian institutions( UKOU,Univ.of London,RMIT,Monash Univ., Curtin Univ.) Cross-border DE programs and online courses that do not have a local presence do not require approval. Bilateral agreements were made with countries providers.

MALAYSIA In mid 1990s 7,2 % university student age were enrolled in local university. Majority of the rest went abroad. Many colleges offering 1+2 , 2+1 or 3+0 twinning programs with foreign universities. New private universities and branch campuses of foreign university may only be established following an invitation from MOE. Invited foreign universities must establish a Malaysian company with majority Malaysian ownership to operate

the campus. National language, Malaysian studies, moral and Islamic studies are compulsory subjects for those universities. MALAYSIA Twinning Programs : KL Infrastructure Univ.

5 1 45 24 4 18 21 47 8 OPPORTUNITIES Quality and Equity in education are top

priorities Great demand globalization Big, diverse and growing market Potential partners The increasing use of ICTs for domestic and cross border delivery of programs CHALLENGES Education is treated purely as a commercial and tradable commodity. Trade will overshadow and dominate international academic relations of countries. Recognition of degrees and qualifications, and transfer of

credits. Restrictions on commercial presence or investment, use of internet or educational materials. Quality assurance and accreditation malpractice. Visa requirements, employment rules. Limited budget or lack of political will to allocate funds. Competition between public and private providers. Homogenization of culture potential threats to cultural values and national traditions. TES will almost certainly continue to grow in SEA as governments and societies put more

premium on human capital enhancement as a source of development as a means of better equiping individuals and societies to confront, adjust to and take advantage of the demands arising from closer economic integration. THANK YOU
