Kedai Perancis Universitas Tanjungpura celebrates its 8th anniversary as the only centre for French language and culture in West Kalimantan. Founded in 2014, Kedai Perancis Universitas Tanjungpura is now under the auspices of the UPT Bahasa Untan and has just extended the MoU in collaboration with the Institut Français Indonesia (IFI) from the French Embassy in Indonesia.

As one of the best Warung Perancis in Indonesia, Kedai Perancis Universitas Tanjungpura can be a connector for further collaboration between lecturers and students at Universitas Tanjungpura, as well as the West Kalimantan community who want to continue their studies in France.

The French Embassy fully supports this cooperation and considers this cooperation to be able to strengthen bilateral relations between West Kalimantan and France. “Through Universitas Tanjungpura, it is expected that more lecturers and students will be able to continue studies in France” explained Stephane Dovert. 

The Rector of Universitas Tanjungpura welcomes this with gusto. He also hopes that the quality of Universitas Tanjungpura educators will increase with a long-term plan to increase the number of doctors studying in France. In charge of Kedai Perancis Universitas Tanjungpura, Dr. Dwiria Wahyuni S.Si., M.Sc. expressed that Kedai Perancis will help provide French language and cultural services through courses, seminars, and training with certified teachers and adequate facilities. The internationally recognized official French language exam has also almost 7 years been carried out in Kedai Perancis Universitas Tanjungpura.

In addition to education, Universitas Tanjungpura will also conduct scientific cooperation with CIRAD. The signing of the cooperation between Universitas Tanjungpura and CIRAD was attended by Mr. Jean-Marc Roda as Regional Director of Southeast Asia.
