Nuffic Neso Indonesia is part of a worldwide network of Netherlands Education Support Offices, and is an overseas office of EP-Nuffic, the Netherlands expertise and service centre for internationalisation in education. Its key activities are:
· Study in Holland promotion and student counselling for Indonesian students
· Providing information on study programmes and internship places for Dutch students in Indonesia
· Institutional cooperation
· Market information and analysis
· Holland Alumni network
· Management of scholarship programmes (StuNed, Orange Tulip, EU SHARE)
We currently have four vacancies within the framework of the EU SHARE programme (EU Support to Higher Education in ASEAN Region). EU SHARE will be implemented by the British Council, Campus France, DAAD, ENQA, EUA and EP-Nuffic.
The global objective of the EU SHARE programme is to strengthen regional cooperation, enhance the quality, regional competitiveness and internationalisation of ASEAN higher education institutions. The result areas are:
1) Policy dialogues
2) ASEAN Qualification Reference Framework/Regional Quality Assurance
3) Credit Transfer/Scholarships.
One of the expected results of EU SHARE is the implementation of an intra-ASEAN and ASEAN-EU scholarship programme. Neso Indonesia, on behalf of EP-Nuffic, will be responsible for that part of the Programme. EU SHARE’s total budget is 9.8 million Euros and more than half of that is dedicated for the scholarship programme. The Programme has started in January 2015 and the implementation period is 48 months.
