This book explores the characteristics and developments of undergraduate education in Asia, focusing on Additional Programs. Although undergraduate education varies between countries, the curricula have traditionally been designed for specialized fields and professions. However, universities are responding to changing environments such as globalization; the emerging knowledge-based society; the dynamics of democratization; and the expansion of higher education scale. It leads them to revise their regular curricula and to introduce Additional Programs that promote activities that are not included in the regular curricula. In our study, Additional Programs are divided into two types: supplementary and enrichment. The former examples are remedial education and learning support for poor academic performance students, and the latter ones are programs that strengthen research capabilities and supporting acquisition of qualifications or licences. We observe similarities and differences regarding Additional Programs and consider the philosophy of education reform in South Korea, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, India, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. The study provides a more comprehensive understanding of undergraduate education in Asia. In conclusion, these countries all develop Additional Programs, both supplementary and enrichment, beyond their regular curricula without regard to scale of undergraduate education or the regime. On the other hand, differences between the developments are found, which reflect the status of undergraduate education, the political situation, the economic system, social demand, and the university’s educational philosophy.
