Respectable Guests from the Indonesian Embassy

PSU had the honor to receive Dr. Yunardi, Education and Culture Attaché, and Mr. Ghofar Ismail, First Secretary, from the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, on August 24, 2012. The objectives of their visit were to make a courtesy visit and discuss collaboration between PSU and Indonesian universities. Our distinguished guests were welcomed by Prof. Dr. Amonrat Pongdara, PSU Vice President for International Affairs, Asst. Prof. Dr. Ram Yamsaengsung, Assistant President for International Affairs, and representatives from the faculties of Engineering, Natural Resources, and Nursing, and from the Graduate School.

Dr. Yunardi mentioned that by 2015 Indonesia would like to expose their students to the international culture and education, and he think that Thailand is the best place for these students to merge in the international atmosphere. He mentioned the possibility to expand the areas of collaboration of PSU with Indonesian universities, as well as the initiation of cultural exchanges.

At present, the PSU Faculty of Nursing has a total of 20 Indonesian students enrolled for their Master's and Ph.D. degree. Also the faculty has research collaboration with Indonesian counterparts, in areas as elderly care and eastern wisdom. The PSU faculties of Natural Resources, Agro Industry, Management Sciences, and Economics have a strong relationship with Brawijaya University, which whom they established a double degree program for Master's level. More PSU faculties have a good relationship with Indonesian universities, in research or training exchanges. For example, the PSU Faculty of Education will conduct a three-month training course for 80 master's degree students from the State University of Surabaya, beginning September 2012.
