Let’s Study Abroad (LSA) Special Online Programs is a sharing and consultation session from ITS students who have participated in online study abroad programs in both academic or non-academic fields and with ITS GE staff. Due to the pandemic COVID-19, almost all study abroad programs are conducted virtually. Therefore, Let’s Study Abroad (LSA) specifically discussed the online programs. This session was held on 23 January 2021 from 09.00 WIB until 12.00 WIB. The event was started with Kahoot games which discussed how much the participants know about study abroad programs. All participants joined the game with great enthusiasm. The event continued with an explanation about study abroad by Mr. Muh. Wahyu Islami PM, S.T. (CommTECH & Mobility Program Manager ITS Global Engagement).

The event continued with a Question and Answer session that talked about the third and the fourth session. In this session, the participants seemed very excited by asking several questions to the speaker.
In the last session in this event, the meeting room was divided into several rooms that in each room the participants may ask questions about anything that they haven’t understand about study abroad. In this session, there are 3 rooms which consisted of room 1 for the non-academic program (online short program and student forum), room 2 for the academic program (online internship and online student exchange), and room 3 for Stamp4It & Workshop that held by ITS GE. Finally, after the last session, we have an awarding presentation for each speaker followed by a group photo session and closing by Master of Ceremony.
