In accordance to international vision and mission of UIB, Universitas Internasional Batam (UIB) annually sends UIB students to or brings foreign students from partner universities in the area of ASEAN. In the beginning of September 2018, specifically on 6th September 2018, ten students from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) came to UIB to join student exchange program (credit transfer). The ten students are going to participate in the learning process in Information System for one semester with other UIB students.
When asked their reasons choosing UIB; besides the closest university to Malaysia; they choose UIB because the ‘international’ attracts their eyes. They believe they can get more international experiences with new international students from different places. Therefore, they hope that they can achieve new things that they never experience in Malaysia.
