International Student Admission (SMI)


About International Student Admission

Becoming a World Class University can be achieved through excellent research, a conducive academic atmosphere, adequate facilities, and several specific indicators. One important indicator is implementing internationalization so the university can be categorized as a World Class University or a world-class campus. The parameter for internationalization that needs to be carried out by higher education institutions is recruiting the best prospective students from other countries (international students).
