Yogyakarta (12/11) – The student exchange program is a program that provides opportunities for students to experience the education system abroad for a certain period. Becoming one of the participants in the student exchange program has become a dream for most students, especially university students. Besides being an exciting experience, participating in a student exchange program also has a myriad of benefits which can certainly help you in shaping and developing your abilities and you can take part in positive activities that you may only get while on Student Exchange.
As felt by Moch. Noerriza Triananta is one of the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY) Student batch 2020 who is doing a Student Exchange at Khon Kaen University, Thailand (KKU). Besides participating in academic activities, he had the opportunity to become a Liaison officer (LO) representing KKU to accompany representatives from Mulawarman University, Samarinda. The activity was held on Wednesday, November 10, 2022, to share about Mulawarman University which wants to open a student exchange program.
In addition to getting the opportunity to be an LO, Rizza is also a representative as a speaker sharing knowledge about student exchange for Mulawarman University. Of course, getting this opportunity made Rizza very enthusiastic and very happy because this opportunity was not necessarily obtained by other students and became an experience that would shape his abilities.
“I feel very honored and happy to be able to get this opportunity which will not necessarily come for the second time. Apart from only participating in academic activities, I also get non-academic activities in which other students may not get the same opportunities as me.” Riza said. (ARP)
