On 2nd September 2017, BINUS UNIVERSITY launched its scholarship programme through an event titled “Globalicious: Your Passport to a Successful Career Destination” in Jakarta and aims to benefit 8,000 students; the scholarships are given to senior high school students to study at BINUS UNIVERSITY for the upcoming 2018/2019 academic year. Initiated in 2008, the annual program has provided opportunities for students from across Indonesia to receive quality higher education, resulting in a large number of graduates contributing to industries that are integral to Indonesia’s economy.
The event featured an exhibition of the various projects of current BINUS UNIVERSITY students from all disciplines in addition to performances by the university’s diverse extracurricular activity clubs — potential scholarship recipients also received counselling regarding the degree programmes that best suits their interests. Upon joining BINUS UNIVERSITY, successful applicants can benefit from all-encompassing facilities, research programmes, and student exchange initiatives, among many others — students can also take advantage of BINUS UNIVERSITY’s 130 international university partners and collaborations with some 10,000 companies.
With the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2016, the free flow of skilled labour will pose new challenges for Indonesia’s battle to stay competitive amongst its ASEAN peers. Through BINUS UNIVERSITY, students can thus attain the relevant critical thinking skills that will prepare them for success in an era of greater regional and global integration.
