    Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia Students will attend lectures in different countries through Indonesian International Student Mobility Award (IISMA) Program

    A total of 20 Students of the Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia successfully passed the selection and achieved achievements as participants in the Indonesian International Student Mobility Award (IISMA) International Mobility Award (IISMA) 2022. The 20 students of the Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia will attend lectures at 19 universities and in 11 different countries.

    Vice Rector for Education and Student Affairs of the Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia Prof. Dr. Didi Sukyadi, MA explained that the Indonesian International Student Mobility Award (IISMA) Program is an Merdeka Belajar-Kampus Merdeka Program (MBKM) organized by the Ministry of Education and Culture in order to provide opportunities for undergraduate students in Indonesia to acquire knowledge and skills, exchange ideas and culture, and develop networks with students and academics in overseas universities so as to become scholars with a global perspective.

    According to Prof. Dr. Didi Sukyadi, MA, the reason for the importance of students joining this program is the recognition of credits from Domestic Universities (PTDN) and Foreign Universities (PTLN).
