European Higher Education Fair Indonesia

The 5th European Higher Education Fair (EHEF) in Indonesia attracted thousands of Indonesian university-seekers. Having held in 2 cities; Surabaya (October 9) and Jakarta (October 12 -13), the event was a resounding success. 2268  visitors were registered in Surabaya and this number was doubled during the two days fair in Jakarta with 5200 and 6240  registered participants respectively.

Various universities from different countries in Europe, including Sweden,  took part in this event. This year, Swedish Institute along with 3 other Swedish universities took part in promoting Swedish Higher Institution. Richard Stenelo and fellow colleague Karen Paulson represented Lund University, whereas  Margareta Svedlund and Kajsa Beckman represented KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Chalmers University of Technology was represented by Cecilia Hillman and Swedish Institute was represented by their Talent Mobility Unit staffs, Seble Abera and Malin Larsson.

 

While many other universities accompanied by their local agent or local representative, Swedish universities were accompanied by their students and alumni. Muhammad Mufti Azis, a current Indonesian Phd student at Chalmers was happy to share his experience studying in Chalmers. Casper and Jessica, KTH students who are currently studying in Singapore also gave some insight about what it’s like to study in KTH. Other Swedish universities alumni whose university was not represented in the event also came to support the Swedish booths.

“..  it was 5 years ago when I was among the crowd asking questions that led me to Sweden. Now, I am helping to answer those same questions” Laili Aidi, a former student of Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship and KTH, shared her reflection of the event. Having to talk to Indonesians who have studied in Sweden helped visitors to relate better with Sweden and its higher education system.

Busy Swedish booths

The Swedish Institute booth shared studying in Sweden in general. It also helped scholarship-seekers to answer their questions regarding financing their studies. Furthermore, the Swedish Institute representatives also conducted a half-an-hour presentation sessions to further promote study in Sweden. Many curious visitors came to the session to get to know more about Sweden.

All in all, the Swedish booths received very well responds from the visitors. Through this event we hope to be able to introduce Sweden as the destination country for quality higher education. We hope to see more Indonesians in Sweden and more Swedish Alumni in Indonesia.
