FITK Building, UIN News Online – Three students from UIN Jakarta participated in a student exchange program to China and Singapore at the Singapore International Youth programs Cultural and Education Exchange (IYSCEE) for the period of August 2016.
They are Humaira Azzahra, from the Faculty of Adab and Humaniora majoring in Arabic Language and Literature, Rhodiatussholihah from the Faculty of Tarbiyah and Teachers Training majoring in Physics Education and Nungky Syntia Febriani from the Faculty of Adab and Humaniora majoring in Library Science.
They have to go through various long processes to pass the selection. Humaira for example, she needs to pass several tests ranging from administration, English essay and interview test conducted by AIESEC Indonesia. Furthermore, she is re-interviewed by AISECEC XICU China through Skype. After she had passed the selection test, she departed to China at the beginning of July 2016. Rhodiatussholihah and Nungky also experienced the same process until they are declared eligible to participate in IYSCEE 2016 program along with 21 other students from various universities in Indonesia.
When met by UIN News Online team, they are admitted very happy to be able to participate in the Student Exchange program. “I am grateful to Allah, who answered my prayer to be the representative of Indonesia. Moreover, PPM (The Center for Community Service) UIN Jakarta make my departure as an Independent International Community Service, which means I do not need to follow the regular Community Service like the other students in general.” Said Humaira.
