“My motivation to join the IISMA 2021 program was from a friend and a lecturer’s recommendation. Well, when the announcement was made, I honestly didn’t think so because when I chose a university it was a bit crazy where I chose to go to Glasgow, then the course I chose was also not in line with nursing, so it made me feel inferior, I was afraid that I would choose the one that matched my major, then I turned out to be get away. Yesterday, I also had many discussions with my academic supervisor regarding the courses I took, one of which was that I took the challenge course in the end of life. I think this is interesting because the elderly population there is more than the population of children which is inversely proportional to Indonesia, so I’m sure the experience while there will be very beneficial because later we will learn a lot about the elderly, especially about what challenges exist at the end of life. and the knowledge can later be shared in Indonesia,” said Ancilla when interviewed (18/06/2021)
The IISMA 2021 scholarship program provides a variety of courses that participants can choose from at each of the selected overseas partner universities. This program is expected to be a new page for selected FIK UI students to make achievements in the international arena and become the door to develop science in Indonesia.
