About ESE

Equal Student Exchange (ESE) is a volunteer-based student network which provides free information about student exchange and study overseas opportunities.

Focusing on providing information to students from developing countries, ESE acknowledges the financial and organisational obstacles these students must often come to face. It is the belief of ESE that both universities and students can benefit through international engagement. A more culturally diverse range of international students will contribute to the continued exchange of knowledge, ideas and culture between different universities and countries.

The volunteers of ESE recognize the importance of establishing enduring educational, cultural and professional links through student exchange.

ESE Fair 2012

The Second Equal Student Exchange (ESE) Exchange Fair.
Date: Sunday 11, November, 2012 
Time: 14.00-20.00
Place: Halaman Purna Budaya (PKKH) Buluksumur UGM.

Equal Student Exchange (ESE) is pleased to announce that the student group will be holding its second exchange fair in Indonesia. Read more about this event on facebook.

Similar to last year's exchange fair, the 2012 event is organised by students for students. Held at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), the event is set to welcome students from throughout the city of Yogyakarta to learn about international study and scholarship opportunities. Throughout the day, Equal Student Exchange (ESE) will be represented by a grassroots movement of local students. 

This can be seen as a progression from the past year where Equal Student Exchange was represented mainly by international students and supported by some local Indonesian students. The greater representation of local Indonesian students signals a shift towards a more sustainable local equal student exchange community. All of these students share a belief in contributing to the wider student community by sharing information about their own experiences of studying overseas. 

Following the widespread interest and demand for information from the local student community in Yogyakarta in 2011, Equal Student Exchange is proud to once again contribute to the local student community in Indonesia. Now with the preparation for the second ESE Fair underway, our community hopes that the Equal Student Exchange Fair will become an annual event as a part of UGM's international culture and food festival (GAMAFEST).
