Mid-Semester Break is the most eagerly awaited activity. A semester break is a right time to take a break and unwind after a busy college routine. Usually, students return home during the semester break. Some go on picnics and travel for refreshing. But some just stay at the boarding house or rent it out, then sleep a lot and keep playing games. Many activities can be done to make the holidays more memorable besides going home or sleeping in the boarding house and playing games.

As a student of the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration, University of Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY), several activities can be done to fill in the Mid Semester Break. The activities that can be carried out by IGOV UMY students are:

Improve Your Language Skills
Languages open up many possibilities. For example, networking internationally and discovering new career opportunities after graduation. However, you must speak the language frequently and persevere if you want to truly master it. Therefore, the Mid Semester Break is the ideal time to enroll in a course or try out a language app.

Looking for Student Exchange Destination
During Mid Semester Break, you can look for information about your destination for Student Exchange starting from the required administration, how their culture and habits, and Looking for benefits for you when you have to do student exchange in that country

Yogyakarta (17/11) – The Student Exchange Program as a result of the collaboration between the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration at the Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (IGOV UMY) and Maejo University, Thailand is conducting stages of sending its students to each university after being confronted by the co-19 pandemic which caused the student exchange program to not be carried out. At this time, IGOV UMY is accepting 2 students from Maejo University, Thailand who will study at IGOV UMY for 1 semester. The two students were named Amnat Arthan and Chakorn Auppala.

Of course, the arrival of the 2 exchange students is expected to be able to add to the relations of IGOV UMY students and they can share experiences, learn about each culture, and provide insight and new perspectives from the exchange students. As stated by Awang, one of the IGOV UMY batch 2020 students, “With the arrival of these 2 students, we hope that we can broaden our insights and perspectives about the world. In addition, we hope that we will be able to exchange positive thoughts and culture with them.” This is of course in line with the mission of IGOV UMY which wants to make IGOV UMY graduates able to compete nationally and globally with the provision provided as well as broader insights and perspectives.

As this of course also has a positive impact on these exchange students, with this program they can learn new knowledge about the Indonesian government which is certainly different from Thailand which adheres to a constitutional monarchy form of government. “We hope that this activity can provide new knowledge about the Indonesian government and upgrade our English skills,” said the two of them. The two students will study with IGOV batch 2020 students for 1 semester.
