About ACA membership

ACA’s strength as an organisation lies on its extensive membership of national-level organisations across Europe and beyond. In their countries, ACA members are involved in a wide range of activities in the field of internationalisation of education, with particular focus on management of exchange programmes, promotion of national education and culture abroad, research and data collection, provision of education-related information and consultation, and formulating policy advice. In addition to its full members, ACA also has a number of associate members. These are organisations of a similar profile, placed outside of Europe.

The role of the Association is to promote the interests and needs of its members vis-à-vis the European Commission and to influence European higher education and research policy through studies and research on trends in higher education internationalisation, such as the Global Promotion Project of the Eurodata reports on student mobility. The members participate actively in the decision making and activities of the Association and co-host ACA’s Annual Conferences.
