Collaboration among educational institutions is important to improve the quality of education. Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) is a University committed to develop education through international collaboration. The Department of Science Education is one of the UNS agents accepting the challenge to accommodate international students as an intern teacher. The Department of Science Education is collaborating with Saint Louis University, Philippines  to send two students (Rhealyn P. Angluben and Derryl Roos F. Dumag) to practice and learn as a teacher in Junior High School 4 Surakarta. They stay in Surakarta for 27 Days from 17 September to 14 October 2023 and do some activities such as university orientation, department orientation, city orientation, and teaching practice in school.
