Abstract

The introduction of the Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka program motivates students to excel in various knowledge domains within their respective fields of expertise, thereby preparing them to compete both nationally and globally. This study aims to investigate students' perceptions of the MBKM program and evaluate its contribution to enhancing students' soft skills as future educators. The research employs a quantitative descriptive approach, with data collected through interviews and observations. Data analysis follows Miles & Huberman's framework, involving data reduction, presentation, and verification. The findings of this research indicate that students possess a comprehensive understanding of the Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka program. Furthermore, it demonstrates that students firmly believe in the program's significant relevance in nurturing their soft skills, particularly in areas such as responsibility, discipline, self-reliance, diligence, self-assurance, and teamwork. Consequently, it is apparent that the Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka program plays a pivotal role in molding students into competent future educators.
