Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has recently renewed its partnership with France. ITS Rector, Professor Dr Ir. Mochamad Ashari M.Eng., welcomed the visit from French Embassy on Monday, April 26th, 2021.
The France delegation was represented by the Head of France Education and Cultural Cooperation, Mr Stephane Dovert. The highlight of this visit was the agreement on Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) about ITS participation in the French+Sciences Competition.
It is a short program held by Campus France Paris for students from partner
universities. ITS is one of six universities from Indonesia that has been selected to participate in this program.
Usually, there are about eight to ten ITS students and lecturers who are sent each year to France. However, this new chapter of the partnership between ITS and France will open more opportunities for ITS students and lecturers to study in France.
During the visit, both parties discussed several programs such as Indonesian International Students Mobility Awards (IISMA), scholarships, student exchange, fast-track, and double degree programs.
Prof. Ashari said that the partnership between ITS and France may also support and achieve the government’s Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka program.
