East Asia Student Encounter (EASE) is a short visit program in collaboration between Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana (UKSW), Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU), Japan, and Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e (UNTL), Timor Leste.

UKSW and KGU had already been running the program together for more than 35 years, when in 2011, they were joined by UNTL.

The purpose is to build friendships with students from other countries in East Asia, and to develop awareness, understanding and tolerance of our different cultures, through discussions, cultural activities, study visits and seminars.  This type of cross cultural understanding is essential to our professional lives as well as to our personal lives as global citizens in a peaceful world.

The EASE program is held once a year, with alternate visits to Indonesia (odd years) and Japan (even years).
