ITS Campus, ITS News – The Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) continues to strive to capture superior seeds both nationally and internationally. ITS has held a series of promotions and selections to enter ITS 2023 new student candidates in Timor Leste since last Saturday (3/12) to realize this effort. This open recruitment was held to recruit international students for bachelor, master, and doctoral levels, especially in the Timor Leste region.

Senior Manager of Promotion and International Mobility of the Directorate of Global Partnerships (DKG) ITS Octaviyanti Dwi Wahyurini ST MAppDesArt Ph.D. explained this activity was held in collaboration with three directorates namely the Directorate of Global Partnerships, the Directorate of Education, and the Directorate of Postgraduate and ITS Academic Development. The woman, often called Oyn, added that the three directorates had been coordinating since September regarding the preparations for implementing this program.

The lecturer at the Department of Visual Communication Design (DKV) ITS said that the student selection process was attended by East Timorese prospective bachelor, master, and doctoral students. In more detail, Oyin explained 81 applicants for the Bachelor level attended 47 people, and 60 applicants for the Master’s and Doctoral levels attended by 27 people. “We don’t limit the quota, but we will select the best students,” he added.

Furthermore, this woman from Surabaya explained that the selection was divided into two stages: the written test and the interview. Moreover, participants who have passed will participate in the matriculation program to prepare themselves to join the ITS study program according to the participant’s choice based on their level.

This Curtin University Masters graduate, Australia, said that the recruitment process was conducted directly at the Indonesian Cultural Center in Dili, Timor Leste. In addition to the student recruitment process, this series of activities was filled with promotional activities and visits to ministries and universities in Timor Leste for three days starting Sunday (4/12). Oyn added that a meeting was also held with ITS alumni in Timor Leste at the same time.

According to Oyn, Timor Leste was chosen as the venue for the activity because ITS had collaborated with the Fundo de Desenvolvimento do Capital Humano (FDCH). Namely, a scholarship institution managed by the Government of Timor Leste that provides full scholarships for undergraduate, master, doctoral, vocational, and Human Resource (HR) development training at ITS. “In addition, there are also quite a lot of ITS alumni in Timor Leste,” he said.

Finally, the graduate of Clemson University Doctoral Program, United States of America, hopes that through this activity, ITS can be more widely known by the international community, especially those in Timor Leste, and increase cooperation between ITS and government agencies and educational institutions there. “Hopefully, the efforts and relationships built by ITS can contribute to capturing superior seeds that are useful for the future,” he concluded.
