The program has prepared administration, documents, curriculum design and program activities according to the design set by UNAIR.
“This preparation will support programs achieving international accreditation acknowledged by all parties, national and international community,” he said.
He continued, the main purpose of the accreditation was to improve the quality of education, students, staffing and research collaboration. It will improve UNAIR’s rank nationally and internationally
“When this accreditation is carried out, the recognition to programs will be very good. We hope in the future learning activities like student mobility, staff mobility and research collaboration with various countries will run well, “he concluded.
