Dwi Yulianto Nugroho


I earned my bachelor’s degree in English Language Education from Sanata Dharma University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 2011. During my study at the university, I received Sanata Dharma University Scholarship and Van Deventer-Maas Indonesia Scholarship. I was also awarded a Classroom Action Research grant from Sanata Dharma University to conduct classroom action research while I was doing a teaching practicum at one of public senior high schools in Yogyakarta in 2010. Upon graduation, I began my professional career as a senior high school English teacher in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia.

In 2016, I received a fully-funded scholarship from Indonesian Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP) to pursue my master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at University of Leeds. After I earned my master’s degree in 2017, I returned to Indonesia and joined Pelita Harapan University in Tangerang, Indonesia as a lecturer (until the present). In February 2022, I came back to Leeds to begin a full-time PhD with the School of Education, University of Leeds, on Indonesian Education Scholarship (BPI) funded by the Center for Education Financial Services, Indonesian Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology.
