This academic seminar and international conference discusses several aspects that exist in the world of education today. These aspects include the importance of studying up to university and what factors can influence someone to continue their education abroad.
Discussions on women’s equality in the right to higher education were also discussed. Where in various countries it is still found the assumption that women do not need to get a higher education, so there is a need for a good understanding of equality for women to get equal rights in education.
It is hoped that with the implementation of the Academic Seminar & International Conference (1st ASIC) this time, teachers, namely lecturers and students from all over the world can collaborate in improving education and technology to face various challenges, especially during the pandemic.
