Malaysia (11/1) The Exchange Program is mandatory for international class students at Yogyakarta Muhammadiyah University, including IGOV UMY. IGOV UMY facilitates student exchange programs with several destination countries both in Europe and Asia.
The Short Mobility Program is a collaboration implemented between IGOV UMY and the School of Government Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). Held for 7 days at UUM from January 9–15, 2023, and will be resumed in March 2023 at IGOV UMY. This program focuses on academic activities and some non-academic activities. This program is a step taken by IGOV UMY to facilitate the Exchange Substitute Program for students who have never done an exchange before. This is done considering that exchange is something that must be carried out for international class students.
