YOGYAKARTA, 4 May – As the Hari Raya break brings joy and celebrations for many students, the Student Residential Committee of Tun Dr. Ismail College (JKM KTDI) has set its sights on a different goal. While others enjoy their time with loved ones, JKM KTDI is busy preparing for the upcoming “Abroad at Java 23” program. This prestigious international event aimed at Yogyakarta has drawn the attention of big companies and departments like LES Copaque, UTM SRAD, UTM International and UTM Alumni who have expressed their interest in collaborating with JKM KTDI. With the support of such prominent industry players, JKM KTDI is well-positioned to create a genuinely impactful program that will benefit students worldwide. “UTM Sanjungan Bangsa” is a mini program under UTM: Abroad At Java (AJ ’23) program, from May 1st to May 7th, 2023.

The AJ ’23 program was a resounding success, thanks to the efforts of JKM and the warm hospitality extended by the schools. By introducing UTM’s programs and promoting the university, JKM took significant steps toward attracting talented international students to join our vibrant UTM community.
