The AUN-QA Framework for Quality Assurance (ASEAN University Network-Quality Assurance) was developed to improve the quality of education in the region, and to support the mobility of learners, workers, and professionals across countries regionally and internationally.

Up to now, 279 evaluations have been carried out, contributing to many benefits for the universities which are official members and associate members of the network.
