Twenty Indonesian Students follow courses at LUMC

Created on:


October 11, 2023

This semester, we have the great pleasure to count 20 Indonesian students to our student population in the English taught elective courses. They come as part of our strategic collaboration with Universitas Indonesia and Universitas Atma Jaya in Jakarta. They study different courses at the Leiden University Medical Center, ranging from Heart and Blood Vessels to Global Health and Advanced Fetal and Neonatal Care.

By far the largest group of international students at the LUMC each year, our Indonesian students contribute greatly to a true global classroom, sharing their global perspective and (highly ambitious!) study ethics with our largely Dutch student population.

Last Wednesday The Ambassador of the Kingdom of Indonesia in the Netherlands welcomed these students on the Embassy premises. During the warm reception, the students were informed on current developments in the relationship between Indonesia and the Netherlands in the educational, cultural and health sectors. Off course there has been a strong historical tie between the two countries, but these students are part of a large and vibrant community of Indonesian students, scholars and doctors who study, live and work in the Netherlands today!

Thank you H.E. Mayerfas, Royhan Nevy Wahab and Agus Setiabudi. The Embassy felt like “home away from home” for our students!
