Exchange Program

So far, IPC UII is still working with Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). This Exchange Program was supposed to run in March 2020, but due to the pandemic, we finally made an agreement with Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) to postpone this program until it could be done physically, because it was to bring direct cultural experience.

This program is related to KKN abroad, IPC students can carry out International Community Service in collaboration with foreign companies, the context is working with communities that have cooperation with abroad, such as AIESEC. In addition, IPC students are required to have one trip or mobility experience, such as Exchange, P2A, or other international exchanges.

Capacity Building Program

Annual Workshop in Globalization

This program is conducted annually for all IPC students. They cannot graduate if they haven’t done this workshop so this program is a prerequisite for graduation from IPC students. The hope of this program is to provide an inside or overview related to the globalization context in the field of communication, so that it can prepare IPC students for the world of work.

This program is conducted every Friday through Instagram social media at Instagram Live. The hope is that this program can become a capacity building program for IPC students themselves. The content raised is also a description of what they experience, both from the academic context, global experience, how to manage themselve as personality, and preparing for their careers in their respective fields.
