Meanwhile, the Rector of UNAIR Prof. Moh Nasih said that if vocational school graduates want to continue studies to college, they should take a D3 program or study in polytechnic. Therefore, it would be inconsistent if graduates of SMK continue to S1 degree.
“It would be nice if SMK graduates continue to Vocational or Polytechnic because their studies were based on practice, “said Prof Nasih. (*)
