Let’s Study Abroad (LSA) February Edition was held once again after the success of the first edition in January.
LSA is a sharing and consultation session for ITS students of all batches. Different from the first edition, the February Edition came with a fresh concept where we invited ITS university partners from all over the world to talk about their offered international programs and afterward giving short consultations for ITS students who might be interested to join their programs, whether it is online or offline programs.
In the February edition, there were two parts of events in which each part we invited three university partners. The first part was held on 19 February and the second part was on 25 February.
In the first part, on 19 February, we invited Istanbul Aydin University (IAU), Turkey, Tarlac Agricultural University (TAU) of Phillippines, and last but not least, the University of Technology of Troyes (UTT), France.
The event started at 16.00 WIB and was opened with an opening speech from the Senior Manager of ITS Global Engagement Office on Promotion & Mobility, Octaviyanti Dwi Wahyurini, S.T., M.AppDesArt, Ph.D.
The session continued with each representative of the university partners giving presentations about their universities and their offered international programs that are available for ITS students for 20 minutes per university. Starting off from IAU with Dr. Ayse Deniz OZKAN who is the Vice Director of Global Education and Partnerships of IAU, then Mr. Michel Legault, Director of International Partnerships from UTT, and finally Dr. Christine N. Ferrer who is the Director of External Linkages and International Affairs of TAU. The presentations run smoothly despite the connection problems that occured.
The second agenda was opened by the Master of Ceremony that was the Panel Discussion where ITS students could ask questions to the representatives. Both questions directly asked by the students and questions collected from the registration forms were answered by the representatives.
The last session of the event was the Breakout Room session. For students who might not be satisfied in the panel discussion session or wanted to ask more questions to a respective representative, they were given the choice to choose between three rooms opened; each room for each partner. Here, a more intimate sharing and consultation session began where students could ask specific questions to the university partner of their choice. Inside all the rooms, students were more enthusiastic to ask questions.
After 30 minutes, the breakout room session had to end. Finally, at 18.00 WIB the LSA February Edition part 1 ended with awarding presentation to the university partners and group photo session.
On 25 February, at 16.00 WIB, the event started with an opening speech delivered by the Senior Manager of ITS Global Engagement Office on Promotion & Mobility, Octaviyanti Dwi Wahyurini, S.T., M.AppDesArt, Ph.D..
After that, the rundown followed the previous part. We invited Mr. Yong Kang Ho, the Inbound Mobility Program Coordinator International Student Center (ISC) of the University of Malaya, Malaysia. Following Mr. Yong Kang Ho was Ms. Suzan van der Hout who is the Incoming Exchange Officer of the Faculty of Technology of AUAS, Netherlands. The presentation session was closed by Ms. Mia Hernawati, the Officer of Six National University Network (SUN) Surabaya Office of SixERS, representing as the Liaison Officer of Kumamoto University, Japan.
The panel discussion began and the students excitedly asking questions to all three representatives. Not to mention that during the Breakout Room session where the students asking more precise questions to each of the representatives.
The second part of LSA February Edition ended at 18.00 WIB with awarding session.
Overall, the LSA February Edition was conducted successfully, attracted an average of 200 participants in each part of the events. Hopefully, ITS students could get more inspired to start their study abroad journey and have more information about their opportunities of studying abroad in ITS university partners.
