Exposure Testimonials

IISMA Program is an once in a lifetime experience that will broaden your horizon on how you view the world. I was honored to be part of the IISMA awardees because i got the opportunity to truly explore my passion and to expand my global network. Also, I appreciate the Ministry of Education to keep progressing and enlightening the education of many despite the pandemic COVID-19. This program has changed my life and it will change your life.

One word to describe my experience with IISMA would be grateful. I get to learn many new things and my academic would have the most impact. Despite being an International Relations student, I am taking Philosophical Studies in KU Leuven. It is challenging for me to learn Philosophy as I have no history record of it. I also get to deepen my insight about European Union’s Institution and Policy by studying it directly with the professor who worked there. Not to mention, I also have to develop my interpersonal skills to build connections with people around me. It is a fun experience to grow into something more through this exchange. I totally recommend it for those seeking new study experiences!

Having an internship at GEO has given me many new experiences, especially in being a part of the Student Affairs team. I learned and improved many new skills, not only communication in English verbal and written, but also new friends and relations, teamwork, time management, and self-discipline. Plus! All of the GEO team members are very very warm, helpful, friendly, and super fun!! It was a really great time!

My time as a Research and Education intern at GEO FISIPOL UGM has been fun and valuable. I was lucky to work for three months with many hard-working people. The staffs and head divisions were kind enough to help me learn new experience. I am grateful that I started my first ever internship with GEO
