Who said studying abroad is boring? Everyone knows it is quite interesting to study abroad. To put things briefly, study abroad is pretty awesome, right? Hence, there are a lot of benefits by studying outside from our country. The ASEAN International Mobility for Students Program or in short, AIMS Program is a Government to Government multilateral educational program for undergraduate students. In the 9th AIMS Review Meeting held at Tsukuba, Japan, 2015, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu was appointed by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia. This program is a Government to Government multilateral educational program for undergraduate students. This government-supported student exchange program was started in 2010 by three initial countries which are Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, under the name of M-I-T Program. In 2013, this program was renamed to ASEAN International Mobility for Students to facilitate additional members. Until today, the members are from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Japan and Brunei Darussalam
For this semester, UMT has received 6 students to join this program where 4 of them are from Gadjah Mada University and 2 of them are from Chiang Mai University. They join this program starting from September 2018 until January 2019. For the Gadjah Mada students, they were attached at School of Fisheries and Aquaculture (PPSPA) and for the Chiang Mai students, they were attached at School of Ocean Engineering (PPKK). We know how hard it is to distil several weeks, months or a whole year’s worth of educational travel adventures into words but those words actually mean something in our life.
