“The program itself strongly supports student mobility, especially students from various countries to Universitas Airlangga,” he added.

The main objective of AMERTA workshop is monitoring and evaluation related to the implementation of AMERTA. Besides, it will also discuss improvement and innovation that can be done to improve the quality of the program.

“The quality is of several courses in the program offered by UNAIR can attract international students,” he said.

Through AMERTA program, UNAIR offers other perspectives in the learning process in lectures. The program is not only attended by students who are members of the AUN (ASEAN University Network), but also non-AUN countries.

Prof. Bambang said the courses in AMERTA program would provide something new and exciting. Something that might not be obtained by international students in their country.

“Hopefully, they (students who join AMERTA, ed) will get new knowledge that can only be obtained through AMERTA program,” he said. (*)
