The visitation of Danish universities to UGM aimed to discuss the collaboration plans between UGM and the universities in Denmark. The idea of future collaboration includes the internship programs, student exchanges, summer courses, and double degree program. An important point from the discussion was the plan for international internship collaboration for UGM vocational students with universities in Denmark that have strong industrial exposure, and listing the universities in Denmark as partner universities for double degree programs in master and doctoral programs. The delegation also proposed an internship program for Danish students in Indonesia, so Danish students could gain internship experience abroad while learning about the economic and cultural conditions of Indonesia.
The discussion was wrapped up with the ideas for future collaboration plans between UGM and universities in Denmark. After the discussion, representatives from Copenhagen Business School visited the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) to meet with lecturers and researchers from FEB. Meanwhile, representatives from Aarhus University held an info session about opportunities to study in Denmark for UGM students. [Sifa/OIA]
