LUMC – Indonesia collaborations reach new highlights

Created on:


October 20, 2022

One of the key focus countries for the LUMC in working on global health challenges is Indonesia. Through the LUMC Global programme, and in collaboration with multiple stakeholders, collaborations with numerous top institutions in Indonesia have resulted in wonderful results and experiences, for instance in student mobility.

With the new academic year having been kicked off, as many as 28 Indonesian students have joined the LUMC for studies during the first semester. They were all welcomed by dean Prof. Pancras Hogendoorn along other (international) students during the LUMC faculty morning taking place during the Orientation Week Leiden (OWL) 2022. All students represent either the Universitas Indonesia or Atma Jaya University.

The opposite route is also being taken. During the half minor phase of the bachelor programmes Biomedical Sciences and Medicine, LUMC students have the option to conduct research and fieldwork in Makassar, Indonesia. 5 students have traveled to Indonesia for their studies. Exciting times for the students and the institutions. We hope the Indonesian and LUMC students gain valuable knowledge and a wonderful experience!

During this year’s Week of Indonesia – Netherlands Education and Research (WINNER), we have more exciting updates to share on our strong and mutual partnerships with Indonesian universities.
