ITS Global Engagement (GE) proudly presents Let’s Study Abroad (LSA) April Edition after the success of the previous events since January. This program is collaboratively carried out by ITS university partners from all around the world and dedicated for all student levels. 

The purpose of this program is to ensure ITS students have the chance to get new insights and perspectives of studying abroad from the representatives of each featured university. We invited ITS university partners from all over the world to talk about their offered international programs and afterward give short consultations for ITS students who might be interested to join their programs, whether it is online or offline programs. 

LSA events in April were divided into two parts. In each part, we invited three university partners. The first part was held on 15 April 2021 and the second part was on 30 April 2021.

First Part

Part one of this program is delivered by three partner universities. The partners invited are:

  1. Chung-Ang University (CAU), South Korea
  2. Mapua University, Philippines
  3. Sapienza University of Rome, Italy

The event started at 14.00 WIB (GMT+7) 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 Mr. Choi Nakhyun and Ms. Lee Nayeon as Korean Students Ambassador of Chung-Ang University, then Dr. Rossette Eira-Espejo Camus, as the Director of International Carrer & Exchange Mapua University, and finally Ms. Ester Latini as the Erasmus + International Credit Mobility Team of Sapienza University. The presentations run smoothly and the participants participate actively.



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 want to ask more questions to the specific 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 and active to ask questions. 

After 30 minutes, the breakout room session had to end. Finally, at 16.00 WIB (GMT+7) the LSA April Edition part 1 ended with awarding presentation to the university partners and group photo session. There are around 90 students of ITS who attended this event. All of them attended the program enthusiastically.


Second Part

Part two of this program is also delivered by three different partner universities. The partners invited are:

  1. SIIT – Thammasat University (SIIT), Thailand
  2. Vives University of Applied Sciences, Belgium
  3. Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT), Japan 

The second part of this program is started at 14.00 WIB (GMT+7) with an opening speech delivered by the Senior Manager of ITS Global Engagement Office on International Partnership, Astria Nur Irfansyah, Ph.D.



After that, the rundown followed the previous part. We invited Ms. Peechalika Sertsirikul as the Chief of SIIT International Affairs and Corporate Relations Division and Ms Chonticha Patchotchai as the Chief of the International Affairs Section, followed by Dr. Johan Cottyn as the Head International Office of Vives University and finally Ms. Kageyama Reiko from the Division of Global Initiatives Shibaura Institute of Technology.



The panel discussion began and the students excitedly asked questions to all three representatives. Not to mention that during the Breakout Room session where the students asked more detailed questions to each of the representatives regarding their universities.



The second part of LSA April Edition ended at 16.00 WIB with the awarding session.There are around 50 students of ITS who attended this event. All of them attended the program enthusiastically. 



Overall, the LSA April Edition was conducted successfully, attracting 50-90 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.
