Guideline on International Exposure
This guideline is released to clarify what IUP means by international exposure. This guideline is applied to students in lifting 2016, 2017 and onwards. It is also applied to the students from the previous lifting who have not conducted international exposure.
(NB: please note that for the sake of the students’ interest, since couple months ago, IUP requires the students to report and seek approval before they conduct the international exposure. It is to ensure that the students will conduct appropriate academic activity based on the IUP standard and therefore the quality of international exposure will not be further questioned).
There are four categories of international exposure, namely:
- Participating in a student exchange or double degree;
- Engaging in an international course in a short-term period, such as summer or winter course;
- Engaging in an international conference;
- Participating in an international competition.
The first classification (student exchange or double degree) is considered clear since these activities are also managed by the IUP. To know UGM’s partner universities for joining an exchange program you may see at UGM International collaboration
The second classification (international course) shall comply with the following requirements.
- The taken course shall have a tight correlation with the legal issues. It will be better if the course is fit with the student’s concentration study.
- Besides, the course shall be offered by reputable and qualified institution, such as university (ex: University of Tokyo, Institute of Social Studies, International Anti-Corruption Academy, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, etc); AND/OR International NGO (such as: Transparency International, Friends of the Earth, Amnesty International, etc); AND/OR reputable international organisation (like UN, OECD, WB, ASEAN etc).
- Minimum duration of the international course shall be five days, as it is considered as the appropriate minimum time to enable the students engaging with the international communities.
- Do not choose a course which is lower or higher than your academic qualification. There was an incident that IUP declined a student’s application because the course was intended for an advanced participant (mid-career of lawyers and researchers).
The third classification (international conference) shall adhere to the following requirements.
- This conference can be held either in abroad or in Indonesia. If the latter condition applies, the student shall ensure that the conference is really an international conference. It can be indicated by the institutions which support the conference and the language used during the conference.
- The student shall act as a speaker, and NOT as a participant. Therefore, IUP may conduct screening the presented paper made by the student.
- IUP does not set any specific requirement for the time duration for the conference.
The fourth classification (international competition) shall fit with the following requirements.
- The competition shall be about legal issues.
- The competition shall be held by a reputable and qualified institution. As it is mentioned in the section of the international course, reputable and qualified institution refers to (i) Reputable University; AND/OR (ii) Reputable INGO; AND/OR reputable IO.
