What Teachers Say About The Benefit of Studying Abroad
What are the benefits you can get when studying abroad? Here are some of the teachers’ expression who attended the World Top 250 Prestigious Universities Education Expo 2018:
“First, the advantage is in terms of prestige. After we graduate from university and return to our country, people will view you differently. Internally, people who study abroad are usually open-minded and understand more things. Then, of course, the ability of English increases,” said Kristhianto, Principal of SMA IPEKA Integrated School.
Kristhianto himself has taken his master’s study in America in the field of Educational Administration. By studying the major, he gained wide insight into new strategies and can develop the ability to help him in the workplace.
Syarif, an English teacher at SMAN 19 Jakarta also shared his valuable experience when he went to school in Istanbul.
“My experience was so fun. I could meet people from many different nations. I learned about their culture, history, and course subjects as well.”
Not only that, a counseling teacher in High Scope High School, Dian, also added that students who study abroad will be independent by itself.
“Because when students study abroad, it is impossible for parents to stay with their children throughout the study period, and students must learn independently and be able to take care of the small things of their own personal needs.”
To be able to study abroad, students must also have a good preparation. Kristhianto shared a few tips for those who want to study abroad.
“The first thing to prepare is the motivation, then the student portfolio such as grades, English skills, supportive activities and students should have advisers from schools or agencies such as SUN Education so that they are more directed towards the goals of their studies.”
