In August the Swedish Embassy in Jakarta together with alumni organized a large gathering intended for preparing the new students on their way to Sweden, it was also kick-off meeting to set-up a local alumni network. A total of 40 alumni attended the event the represented former scholars from some of Sweden’s largest universities such as Lund University, Stockholm University and Uppsala University.
Also 9 new international students, of which 7 were new Swedish Institute scholarship holders preparing to arrive in Sweden to begin their studies this fall managed to attend. The new students received a pre-departure briefing on what to expect when arriving in Sweden.
It was also a delight to have the former Ambassador of Indonesia to Sweden 2006-2010, Ambassador Linggawaty Hakim, a Stockholm University alumnus, speak her experiences of studying in Sweden as an international student.
Hopefully we might see a new Alumni Network, soon in Jakarta. To meet Sweden Alumni in Jakarta, also visit the official group on Facebook.
The event was supported by the Swedish institute and many thanks to the Swedish Embassy and Swedish Ambassador to Indonesia Ewe Polano for hosting the event as well as to our enthusiastic Alumni in Jakarta.
