Why Did I Choose to Study at PresUniv?
Well, now I’ve just started my college years at a private university in Indonesia. The university is called President University. It’s a private university in Jababeka, Cikarang, near Jakarta. It’s fairly new and still not well-known. I knew about it from the marketing department who delivered a presentation at my school.
Now, for the big question: Why did I choose to spend my college years here?
Well, in Indonesia, to get into a famous state university, we need to pass a nation-wide exam called the SNMPTN. If you fail that, you have to choose to follow a test exclusive to said college or choose a private university.
I decided to enroll in a private university, since I failed in the SNMPTN. According to the presentation by the marketing department, President University had all kinds of cool facilities like the student housing, exclusive access to a golf course, and an internship program. The scholarship offered also intrigued me. I heard that state universities cost a lot of money just for the enrollment process, so I decided on President University.
I don’t think it’s wrong to choose a private university, that’s just what the majority of people think. With the scholarship program, I only have to pay around 75% of the entire tuition fee, so it’s a very great deal. I won’t regret my choice, that’s for sure!
