In an effort to introduce the prospective students to universities and sciences, Indonesia Open University or Universitas Terbuka (UT) participated in the World Education Expo Indonesia (WEEI) 2019 event. This national and international universities exhibition was held at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) starting from 27 to 28 September 2019 and followed by more than 19 countries.
WEEI 2019 was officially opened by Director General of Science and Technology Resources, Ministry of Research, Technology dan Higher Education, Prof. dr. Ali Ghufron Mukti M.Sc., Ph.D. In his speech, he expressed his gratitude to all universities and countries that had participated in such event. He hopes that this event would create better networking among universities, and in addition, universities can focus on producing high quality human resources with good personality. The event was officially opened with the Ribbon-cutting ceremony by Director General Ali Ghufron who also visited the location of the expo.
UT contributed in the event by opening a booth and providing information required by the prospective students. The prospective students were enthusiastic while they received the information on open and distance learning education (PTTJJ) developed by UT starting from undergraduate to postgraduate programs. May with the event like this, the prospective students would be able to know more about UT, and it would eventually improve the image of the institution.
