Cerita tentang Harapan ..Impian..dari seorang Puspa Setia Pratiwi

And The Journey Begins…

on November 18, 2008

Alhamdulilah..Finally, surat itu datang juga…Insya Allah seusai UAS gw akan berangkat ke KL untuk ikut AUN student exchange selama kurang lebih 5 bulan(Des-Mei) .

Perjalanan ini dimulai sekitar awal bulan September, pas waktu itu gw liat info kesempatan student exchange ini dari milis IO UI(internationaloffice@yahoogroups.com). Ada 2 kesempatan exchange yang waktu itu dibuka, satu ke Malaysia dan satu ke Brunei. Akhirnya setelah mempertimbangkan kelebihan n kekurangan masing-masing, akhirnya gw memilih untuk ikut yang Malaysia (University of Malaya).

Persyaratan untuk daftar exchange ini harus menyerahkan nilai TOEFL ITP min 500, surat rekomendasi dari dekan/wakil dekan , dan transkrip nilai akademik. Akhirnya semua persyaratan itu gue coba penuhi(tes ITP di LBI UI, bikin surat rekomendasi lalu minta ttd Pak Heru, minta transkrip nilai akademik ke sekre). Prosedurnya cukup mudah koq..Dan akhirnya sekitar dua minggu kemudian dipanggil untuk interview ke IO, mostly pertanyaan seputar intention utk ikut exchange, dll.

Kemudian sekitar sebulan kemudian Universitas Malaya mengirimkan offering letter yang akan gw pakai untuk membuat student pass visa, dan surat bebas fiskal(disertai fotokopi paspor , ktp, bukti pembelian tiket pesawat). Fiuh…ribet juga persiapannya tapi semua harus dijalani dengan senang hati…

Gw kesana sama Leni..jadi kita berdua akan jadi mahasiswi Faculty of Computer & IT di UM. Insya Allah nanti gw akan menyelesaikan TA disana, dengan bimbingan via email dari Pak Dana. Disana gw ngambil 3 mata kuliah tentang multimedia,IS, & entrepreneurship. Pengennya kalo udah disana pengen sekalian cari peluang S2, travelling, n jalan2 k NTU S’pore (sekalian riset buat TA n menjalin relasi dengan Earthlink gitu..hehe). Berikut ada beberapa info tentang peluang exchange dari AUN yang salah satunya saya ikuti:
