Accredited “A”


International Relations Department provides two options of classes: international program conducted in English and regular program conducted in Bahasa Indonesia. Normally, we offer the international program which are conducted in English for foreign students in many schemes, such as exchange program, sit-in, and full time study program.

Our department has been assessed by the National Board of accreditation; and our grade is “A” for four times which recently has been awarded in 2014.
