Living in a country with a different culture will cultivate student’s adaptability and broaden their perspective in dealing with diversity. Through this diversity, students are expected to seize opportunities, including teaching or professional prospects, as well as opportunities in the economics sector such as export and import. This becomes a resource for students to develop their potential in the future.

This activity is closely tied to the cooperation and support of all parties involved, mainly LPPP and Office of International Affair UM that participate actively as the technical coordinator of the program. After postponed during the pandemic, in this year, UM delegates 15 students from various majors including S1 English Education, S1 Mathematic Education, S1 Science Education, S1 Physical and Health Education, and S1 Elementary Education.
