The Student Experience


Kemitraan Negara Berkembang (KNB) scholarship awardee 

After spending 2 years of my entire academic year at UMS (Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta) especially in the School of Pharmacy where I completed my Master of Science degree, I can say without any hesitation that, UMS is a place where every student matters (international students included). The University organizes countless seminars, academic events, and activities where I felt so honored to have taken part. I learned so much from those seminars and academic events because they represent a master key piece for me not only from the academic perspective but also for my personal growth and development as a person.

My experience at Magister Farmasi UMS has been wonderful and if I would describe with two words, it would be a friendly atmosphere. Moreover, studying at Magister Farmasi UMS gave me a sense of belonging because they value and prioritize people. I met amazing, caring, and friendly people and I learned a lot about Indonesian culture. Good relations are essential for personal growth and development and I strongly recommend anyone to go study at UMS and live the beautiful experience that they will always remember and which will strengthen them in all aspects.
