In 2022, Diponegoro University (Undip) again accepts new student candidates through the Selection for Excellent Students with Achievement (SBUB). Based on the Rector’s Regulation of Diponegoro University Number 1 of 2020 concerning New Student Admission, SBUB is a selection path of Undip’s new student admission in the form of practice that is specifically intended for prospective students who have superior achievements in their fields.

Undip Rector, Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, S.H., M.Hum., stated that the purpose of holding SBUB is to attract students who have the potential to later play a role in upholding the name of the alma mater in various types of competitions at national and international levels. Participants who can register are students who have a minimum achievement of 1st place at the provincial level. Prospective students can choose two study programs according to the majors of SMA/MA, namely Natural Science / Social Science / Language.

“Students who are selected through the SBUB path are required to continue to excel in their respective branches after becoming students (besides being strong in their academic fields) and contributing to the University ranking value,” said Prof. Yos.

Based on the recap carried out by the Undip admission department, in 2022 there were 2,345 registrants and 830 of them passed Phase II to take aptitude tests and interviews. For those who qualify, the final results will be announced on April 26, 2022.
