The College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences, Graduate School, through Dr. Ma. Encarnacion Dychangco and Dr. Jennifer Olivar, brought 18 PhD students enrolled in the subject, Comparative Education, to Brawijaya University (BU), Malang, Indonesia.

The three-day visit, which took place on 19-21 March 2018, had the following objectives: to allow the students to discover differences in the current educational systems, including policies and structures of two countries and the factors that bring about such differences in the system; to facilitate practical reform and planned development of the school system; and to promote the spirit of international understanding and co-operation among those who study it, by promoting friendship, understanding other people's points of view, and appreciating other people's cultures.

The visit to the School of Medicine of BU allowed the students to explore and observe educational practices in the undergraduate levels as regards classroom, skills laboratory, clinical activities, as well as exposures in the chosen community. The students also attended and gave their comments during the curriculum review with the faculty of BU. Some students presented the results of their research papers during the Research Conference on Day 3.

This three-day educational activity, an implementation of the MOU between the two universities, was approved by the Commission on Higher Education.
