Passage to ASEAN (P2A) Journey


For the students who truly want the full experience of P2A, the third and final programme offered is the ASEAN Journey (Mobility Programme). To truly experience and understand other countries, you must indeed go there to see and get first-hand experience. P2A recognises that the two biggest challenges for student mobility are the cost and time to travel. It would be wonderful if every student in the world could experience study abroad or study exchange in another country. However, we know that this is unrealistic for many students and disciplines. Therefore, the P2A Network of Universities combines efforts to provide the cheapest options, with the most fulfilling experience, in the most flexible period possible.

How do we do this?

Each P2A Member Institution offers a standardized 3-day programme for an intensive cultural experience for a standard price of USD 25–40 per night (including accommodation, meals, local transportation, and activities). Programmes are not limited to three days; they can be longer or shorter. However, to make life easier for faculty and students to plan trips, we start with a standardized three-day programme that can be adjusted per any institution’s wishes. However, both the host institution and travelling institution must agree on the journey details beforehand. Many student trips involve several countries and several institutions. A typical trip will last 1 to 2 weeks but can be as short as a few days or as long as a few months. P2A Member Institutions agree to common aspects in all programmes, including cultural seminars, student reflection groups, and, of course, local sightseeing.

The P2A journey is available only to member institutions.
