Why Choose UNNES
Established in 1965, Semarang State University (UNNES) is one of the biggest state universities in Indonesia. UNNES is the first university that declared itself as the Conservation University of Indonesia. The conservation declaration was announced by the Rector of UNNES in a glorious celebration attended by the Minister of National Education of Indonesia on March 12th, 2010. When UNNES was first established in 1965, its name was Teacher Training College Semarang (IKIP Semarang) that accommodated the need of teachers around Central Java and gave a great attention to education. Then, by the Indonesian Presidential Decree No. 124 in 1999, IKIP Semarang was converted to be Semarang State University.
UNNES is determined to consistently uphold the idea of protection, preservation, utilization and sustainable development of natural and cultural resources of Indonesia. UNNES also puts conservation as a manifestation of the Tridarma of university namely education, research, and community service.
