Campus ITS, ITS News — Entering the odd academic year 2022/2023, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember again welcomes dozens of foreign or international students to participate in various educational study programs at this hero campus. A total of 53 students from multiple countries are spread across several departments at ITS.

The 53 newly arrived international students participated in several educational programs at ITS. Among others, as many as 39 students participated in the student exchange program, eight students participated in the internship program, and six other students were registered as full degree students at ITS.

Senior Manager of International Promotion and Mobility of the ITS Global Partnerships Directorate (DKG) Octaviyanti Dwi Wahyurini ST MAppDesArt Ph.D. revealed during the two years pandemic, ITS only accepted international or international students online. Now that the pandemic has subsided, ITS has again opened a program that international students can take offline.

Last semester, right after the Indonesian border was opened, ITS only accepted 14 international students. However, because overseas travel regulations are currently more flexible, more international students can be obtained this semester. “The students come from countries such as Malaysia, France, Denmark, Germany, Syria, India, Japan, and Finland,” he said.

The woman who is familiarly called Oyin explained that students who took part in student exchanges registered through the nomination of ITS partner universities. Then for students with complete degree programs at ITS, register through the page. After being officially registered, students took part in ITS orientation activities, which were carried out on August 24.

Student registrants who participate in the student exchange program later will undergo activities for one semester. Then for the internship program, students will do internships in their respective departmental laboratories. “Then for those who take the full degree program, there are S2 and S3 students, of which only two people take the Joint or Double Degree program,” explained the lecturer of the Visual Communication Design Department (DKV).
