In an effort to introduce prospective students to the world of higher education and science, the Open University (UT) participated in the 2019 World Education Expo Indonesia (WEEI) event. The national and international university exhibition was held at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) on 27-28 September 2019 and was participated by more than 19 countries.
WEEI 2019 was officially opened by the Director General of Science and Technology Resources of the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education Prof. dr. Ali Ghufron Mukti M.Sc., Ph.D. In his speech, he expressed his gratitude to all universities and countries that participated in the event. His hope of this event is the creation networking between better universities, and universities can focus on producing quality human resources and character. The event was officially opened by cutting the ribbon by Director General Ali Ghufron who also visited the exhibition site.
UT contributed to the event by opening a booth and providing information needed by prospective students. Prospective students are very enthusiastic in obtaining information about open distance tertiary education (PTTJJ) developed at UT from undergraduate to post graduate levels. Hopefully with an event like this, prospective students can get to know more about UT, and improve the image of the institution.
