In choosing a university, most people in Indonesia tend to focus only on the accreditation achieved by the university. Whereas, people also need to know exactly the curriculum provided by the university. The importance of the university’s curriculum quality has been experienced by Mohammad Jalal Amiri, an alumnus of President University majoring in Management batch 2013. Jalal, who is coming from Afghanistan, is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Engineering Management at the University of Western Australia (UWA), one of the top one hundred universities in the world and part of the top 8 universities in Australia.

“I got a scholarship from the university due to having a good GPA, internship experience, and some extracurricular experience at President University. I also obtained very good recommendation letters from my lecturers at President University,” said Jalal.

As an international alumnus, Jalal sees that President University has an international distinct curriculum which is recognized by universities and employer worldwide. “I personally found President University’s curriculum to be very flexible, challenging, and yet inspiring. Other than that, the high standard of President University curriculum and syllabuses has been proven by my acceptance at UWA,” he said. Jalal explained that when he first applied at UWA, the university's admission team required him to provide them the unit outlines or syllabus he studied at President University, especially Mathematics and Statistics that are highly important in his master’s program.

In addition to the excellent curriculum, Jalal encourages other students to be more confident and always strive for the best. "Don not just attend classes but take part in curriculum activities and embrace every opportunity available. Because having these kinds of experience is crucial when applying for a master’s degree and scholarships," he said. (ZA/SL)

 


 

Tidak hanya IPK, Kualitas Kurikulum Almamater Ikut Andil dalam Diterimanya Mohammad Jalal Amiri di Western University of Australia

 

Dalam memilih universitas, sebagian besar orang di Indonesia cenderung fokus hanya pada akreditasi yang dicapai oleh universitas. Padahal, ada faktor kurikulum yang tidak kalah penting untuk diperhatikan oleh calon mahasiswa. Pentingnya kualitas kurikulum universitas telah dirasakan oleh Mohammad Jalal Amiri, alumni President University jurusan Manajemen angkatan 2013. Saat ini, pria asal Afghanistan ini menempuh studi Magister Manajemen Teknik di University of Western Australia (UWA), satu dari seratus universitas terbaik di dunia dan anggota dari delapan teratas universitas bergengsi di Australia.

“Saya mendapat beasiswa dari universitas karena memiliki IPK yang baik, pengalaman magang, beberapa pengalaman ekstrakurikuler di President University. Saya juga memiliki surat rekomendasi yang sangat bagus dari dosen saya di President University,” ujar Jalal. 

Sebagai alumni internasional, Jalal berpendapat bahwa kurikulum internasional di President University yang telah diakui universitas dan perusahaan dunia. “Kurikulum President University sangat fleksibel, menantang dan menginspirasi. Selain itu, standar tinggi kurikulum dan silabus President University telah dibuktikan dengan penerimaan saya di UWA,” ujarnya. Ia menjelaskan bahwa saat pertama kali mendaftar di UWA, tim penerimaan universitas mengharuskan Jalal untuk menyerahkan silabus pembelajaran yang ia lewati di President University, khususnya untuk menilai unit Matematika dan Statistik yang penting untuk program magisternya.

Selain memang kurikulum yang sudah mumpuni, Jalal mendorong mahasiswa lain untuk lebih percaya diri dan selalu berusaha untuk yang terbaik. “Jangan hanya menghadiri kelas tetapi ikut serta dalam kegiatan kurikulum tambahan dan mengambil setiap kesempatan yang ada. Karena memiliki pengalaman seperti ini sangat penting ketika melamar gelar master dan beasiswa,” ujarnya. (ZA/SL0
