International Programs

A way to see the world

PBI Sanata Dharma University provides the best academic possibilities to ensure students' success. One of which is by offering a diverse range of international programs to help students become well-rounded in a variety of areas.

It's a privilege to be granted the freedom to carve your own route to success, let alone to have full support along the way. Let's hear Theresia Marsha Prawatya, a former student of PBI Sanata Dharma University, speak about her experience enrolling in PBI's international programs.

Studying in PBI has become an amazing eye-opening experience for me. It offered me an opportunity to develop not only my English skill, but also my creativity, responsibility, and humanity. I might have not been able to experience studying abroad if it was not because of PBI through the exchange programme. 

The lecturers are really cool too! They are very positive, supportive, and tech-literate! You surely will be taught to make use of fun teaching media in their awesome labs!
