The webinars were divided into two sessions with a specific target audience who is interested in the type of scholarship they wish to apply for. To make the session concise within 60 minutes, we divide the programme into 3 part; programme insight, student experience and promotion opportunities. In the first webinar entitled An Insight: Semester@JBNU, we invited Ms. Yunha Park the mobility coordinator from JBNU to explain on student application to JBNU, Ms. Nurul Shalihin Basri, Outbound alumni that went for semester exchange in JBNU.

We hope through these efforts, the awareness of student mobility increases among students and help them to plan their studies in advance and to experience study abroad. As we all know mobility is an amazing opportunity for students to meet people from all over the world and immerse themselves in an exciting new culture and society. It is also a great way to improve language and communication skills, and broaden perspective and outlook on life.
