AROUND 1.250 students are expected to attend Magelang’s Muhammadiyah University for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Until Saturday, July 11, 2015, the university has received more than 700 applications, says the Rector of Magelang’s Muhammadiyah University, Eko Muh Widodo.

“We are optimistic that after the SBMPTN (Joint Entrance Test for State Universities) result  announcement,  the number of enrollments will increase,” he explained, adding that registration will still be available through Saturday, September 19, 2015.

He admitted that this Magelang’s largest private university has not become a primary choice for prospective students.

“Therefore, we should work hard in order to realize this university as the right educational choice for them,” Mr Eko assured.

Magelang’s Muhammadiyah University has recently implemented the use of CBT (Computer-Based Test) for  the purpose of entrance examination.

Especially in the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Educational Sciences, there will be an interview as part of the examination.

At present, there are 6 faculties in the university established in August 31, 1964: Faculty of Economics, Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty of Educational Sciences, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Engineering, and Faculty of Islamic Studies.***[]
