Universitas Padjadjaran, also known as UNPAD, is a well-respected public university in West Java, Indonesia. It was founded in 1957 in Bandung, a lively city in West Java. The university is named after the Kingdom of Padjajaran, which existed from 1473 to 1513 and was led by Prabu Siliwangi.
UNPAD is highly regarded and has received the highest accreditation as an “Accredited Institution with A Rating” from the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education. It is a popular choice for students applying to public universities in Indonesia. Over the years, UNPAD has grown from having four faculties to its present 16 faculties and postgraduate schools, offering a wide variety of academic programs.
UNPAD has two main campuses: Jatinangor Campus in Sumedang Regency and Iwa Koesoemasoemantri Campus in Dipati Ukur, Bandung. It has also established two additional campuses, known as Program Studi di luar Kampus Utama (PSDKU), in Pangandaran and Garut to offer specific study programs. In April 2023, in an effort to enhance networking and institutional collaboration, it opened a representative office in Jakarta.
