It was a very fulfilling five months. At UGM, a local student is appointed for each exchange student as a “buddy” to support the exchange student’s life during the stay. I was living among local people throughout my stay. The local students are used to socializing with foreign students and have good international sense, so I could easily blend with them. There are many students with high academic competence and many international students from different countries as well, offering a great chance for you to learn from other students in class. Therefore it is very important to actively participate in class discussions. Jogjakarta is a charming city. The people are nice and there are abundant tourist spots to visit. Once you get used to the country, you can travel around to other cities to discover different aspects of Indonesia. One semester can pass by in a blink of an eye, so you should have a sense of purpose and a clear target to make your stay meaningful.
