This semester’s BINUS International Week (iWeek) took place on 4 – 7 May 2021, titled “What’s Next After Covid? Limitless Learning Experience”. At this event, participants had a chance to experience virtual learning together with distinguished academics, experts, and university representatives from more than 20 overseas higher education institutions from 12 countries participating in iWeek 2021. Each speaker from these institutions were scheduled to deliver discussions on a variety of topics. Participants were also able to interact with them to know more about the scholarship, further study, and student mobility opportunities they offer. The whole event was conducted online through iWeek’s website.  

There were three main activities in the virtual iWeek 2021. The first one was International Lecture Series, public lectures that were given by international speakers related to academic topics. The second one was Seminar & Info Session, a live session with BINUS students and alumni presenting academic or general topics as well as university information.
