We would like to share with our Higher Education Unit students the mobility opportunities from our international partner institution, the University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific (UMAP).

UMAP is an association of Higher Education Institutions, governments, and NGO partners in the Asia Pacific region.

As a member of UMAP, ADDU students are eligible to participate in their various program offerings:

Program A is an exchange program through which UMAP-participating institutions send and receive up to two students with tuition waivers each semester;

Program B is a negotiated bilateral exchange between two institutions that have agreed to exchange more than two students per semester; and

Program C are short-term (one to eight-week long) programs offered by UMAP-participating universities/institutions. Programs are available in a wide range of disciplines: cultural studies, language proficiency courses, vocational training, entrepreneurship, and more.

All program offerings are available on their virtual platform, the UMAP Student Connection Online (USCO) system.

The USCO system is a comprehensive platform for sharing program information, processing student applications, and supporting communication between students, home institutions, and host institutions. It has been upgraded to USCO 2.0 which offers more flexibility and functionality. The system will send notifications of status changes, actions needed, etc.

With this, we would like to invite you to register in the portal – UMAP Student Connection Online (USCO). On this platform, you may explore student mobility programs such as student exchanges, global internships, discovery camps, international conferences, leadership trainings, study visits, and more!
