AMERTA is an international semester exchange program hosted by Universitas Airlangga to offer international students overseas take an opportunity to partake in studying for one semester in Universitas Airlangga. This program is available for international students who are interested in a number of uniquely Indonesian perspective subjects in social and cultural aspects, economics, natural sciences and health/life sciences.

Inaugurated in 2014, it was successfully conducted for its first batch. All courses are fully delivered in English, and students are given some benefits such as Indonesian language learning, cultural trip, international events, and online learning delivered by overseas academics throughout the program.

AMERTA focuses on the current issues happening in Indonesia-a developing country-amidst the dynamic nature of globalisation and see them through the perspective of natural, health and social sciences. Natural and health sciences provide a wide array of knowledge about Indonesian biodiversity, the dynamic of tropical medicine development and community empowerment in health sector, especially in Indonesia as a developing country; whereas social sciences offer the dynamics of Indonesian urban culture, creative economy and society as the impact of globalisation.
