Likewise, the presence of the UGM SV FRC Building will bring them closer to the people in the Kulon Progo area.

“Besides that, the hope is that as more young people get higher education, the quality of Kulon Progo’s resources will also increase,” he said.

The FRC building is located at Jl. Tunjungan. Kulon Progo is designed to have three floors that function as meeting rooms, analysis rooms, laboratories, and offices with an open space concept for the general public and the educational community to learn and develop vocational education. This building will function as a center for research and innovation development activities in collaboration with the Kulon Progo Regency Government. Thus, the principle of “link and match” vocational education with industry, agencies, and the community can be appropriately applied in the real world.

“Hopefully, by working together, synergizing, we can cover the shortcomings that we have and we can minimize them so that our activities are strengthened by synergizing with one another.” said the Rector of UGM in his speech.

The construction of this building marks the seriousness and commitment of the Vocational College UGM in facilitating its Applied Bachelor program.

New Student Admissions (PMB) SV UGM 2020 for Screening by High School Report’s Card to find Superior Students (PBU) has been opened on February 4, 2020 and will be closed on March 18, 2020. As in previous years, there are 4 types of PBU, namely PBUSMAK (PBU SMA/SMK /MA), PBUB (PBU with Achievement), PBUTM (PBU Not Able), and PBUK (PBU Partnership). PBUSMAK is a pathway for high school / vocational / MA graduates with the best 25% report card scores in their school. The PBUB is opened for graduates who have achievements in the fields of sports and science and technology. Meanwhile, prospective students who are academically capable but not economically capable can register through the PBUTM route. The last one is PBUK, which is a partnership program between UGM and local governments, government institutions, and/or companies. All important requirements and dates related to PMB UGM can be accessed at um.ugm.ac.id. 

In addition to the report card, prospective students can also register through the UGM Written Examination (UTUL). Prospective UTUL UGM participants register online at the official website um.ugm.ac.id and choose three study programs of interest. The requirement for prospective UTUL UGM participants is to take part in the 2020 UTBK. The last route to be accepted as a UGM Vocational School student is the Value Path. In this pathway, prospective students are selected based on the results of UGM UTUL scores + UTBK scores. In the final path of PMB SV UGM, participants can choose two study programs at Vocational College UGM.

Vocational College UGM is the only faculty that provides vocational education at Universitas Gadjah Mada. Apart from excelling in the curriculum because it is based on industry needs, SV UGM also excels in encouraging students’ soft skills. The achievements of SV UGM students managed to become the overall champion in the Indonesian Electric Car Competition. In addition, SV UGM also continues to establish relationships with universities abroad to realize dual degree programs, student exchanges, and other international projects.
