In line with what was said by the Dean of FST UNISA Yogyakarta, Arif Bimantara, the Head of the Biotechnology Study Program, FST UNISA Yogyakarta, conveyed that the offline class would be held in a room that had been prepared so that there was enough distance between the students.

“The news of offline class is the hope for all students. Especially, for the final-year students who will do thesis and research later. Our preparation when we are going to take an offline class is to make a license agreement of the parent, then go to Jogja by preparing enough time for self-isolation. After that, we are also facilitated by campus to do GeNose tests according to health protocols before offline class is done,” said Ata Rofita.
