The Pan-Asian Student Forum was first held in Beijing in 2013 and involved Peking University (Yuanpei College), Seoul National University (College of Liberal Studies) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (S. H. Ho College).
The University of Tokyo (College of Arts & Sciences) joined the second iteration of the forum held in Seoul in 2014. NUS (USP) was added to the consortium in 2015.
The forum was inaugurated to provide a platform for students from distinguished universities in Asia to meet regularly and share views on topics that impact countries in the region and around the world.
