Why should you study overseas?

Hari ini dapat pelajaran cukup penting selama jadi mahasiswa, begitu pentingnya pendidikan, dan luasnya tempat di mana kita bisa menuntut ilmu. Kita ketahui bumi memiliki luas sekitar 510.072.000 km2, yang artinya begitu besar dan luas juga peluang kita mengejar mimpi kita, di mana pun, kapan pun, dengan siapa pun, dalam menuntut ilmu tentu harus tetap berprasangka baik.

Sekedar iseng awalnya browsing tentang jenjang pendidikan master yang ada di Amerika, salah satunya di sekolah impian saya sendiri yaitu Colorado School of Mines. Kurikulum tentang geologi sangat berkembang di sekolah itu, semua risetnya uptodate, dan cabang geologinya juga lengkap, sangat mengagumkan!

Ada kolom khusus untuk mahasiswa internasional, tempat perkumpulan, beasiswa, mau pun artikel-artikel bebas. Kemudian ada satu yang menarik, yaitu artikel yang berjudul “why should you study overseas?”. Beberapa menit membaca, menghasilkan tekad kuat bagi saya melanjutkan pendidikan di Amerika. Insya Allah!

Berikut artikelnya…

Reasons to Study Overseas

 

Personal
Study overseas can be a life changing experience. Living and studying in another culture teaches you valuable information about the world and its people. It also provides an opportunity for increasing your fluency in the country’s language.

 

Independence

It teaches you important aspects about yourself and your ability to cope in new situations and adapt to another culture.

 

World View

Studying abroad expands your understanding of other cultures and increases your global competence.

 

Future Career Opportunities

Studying overseas looks good on your resume. International education can provide a significant edge in seeking a job during the present competitive job market. In several multinational corporations an individual will not be considered for middle management unless they have a demonstrated international background or experiences. An employer will take a chance on an applicant whose record shows adaptability, flexibility, and respect.

 

Your Mines diploma may get you the job, but an international transcript will demonstrate your ability to succeed in a difficult environment.

 

Window of Opportunity

When, for the rest of your life, will you have this rare opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture? You can travel after you graduate from CSM but you will always be a tourist.

 

Dunia yang terlihat oleh mata bukan hanya di Indonesia, keluar, telusuri hingga ke ujung batas. Bekal ilmu yang didapat selama perjalanan pasti berguna dan berpeluang besar membawa kita ke tahap kesempurnaan, dan kesempurnaan pada diri kita alangkah mulianya apabila membawa manfaat untuk orang banyak.
