Exchange Student from Sophia University Japan.
Five months in Gadjah Mada University was absolutely amazing. As one of the best universities in Indonesia, lecturers are professional and students are actively involved in class. I learned a lot about business as well as Indonesian economy at Faculty of Economy and Business. Also, working with other exchange students from all over the world, was such a great experience for me to learn cultural differences and how to overcome them.
I enjoyed the atmosphere of Yogyakarta outside of the campus too. Yogyakarta has a lot of great places to visit, from historical temples to beautiful nature. Traveling around Yogyakarta with Indonesian friends was one of the best memories I got during my stay. People in Indonesia are so friendly. They are always smiling, welcoming, and very happy to help out people in need. I felt like “home” living in Yogyakarta, and I will definitely go back there again.
I highly recommend to everyone to join in Gadjah Mada, and create a lot of memories that will stay in your heart forever.
