Who doesn’t want to study in the best place, have the opportunity to learn from those who are experts in their fields, and be part of the ranks of great people who are alumni? You all want it right? But the problem is, for those of us who want to study, for example, getting into the best universities is not an easy matter. Not only does it require us to compete with many people, being careful in making choices is also often a requirement.
To make it easier for you to make your choice, this time the Smart Class team will share tips on how to choose the best college.
Choose a major that you are really interested in
There are many of the best universities out there, both public and private. Even so, not all of these colleges may provide the majors that you are interested in. Therefore, the first thing you should pay attention to before choosing a destination campus is to first determine the major you want.
It is highly recommended to choose a major according to your interests and talents. Because of what? You will spend about 4 years learning the field, imagine if you didn’t like it from the start. So, don’t get me wrong!
Find out the ranking of the college to go to
If you already know what major you want to take, the next step is to find out the ranking of the college you are going to. It’s not a priority, but at least you know. Because after all, the best colleges must have high ratings from many credible and trustworthy institutions.
Consider the reputation of the faculty
Unless you are referring to Harvard and Oxford, there is no other best college or college in the world that excels in many ways. Therefore, do not be surprised if different universities have different “strengths”. For example, if you want to major in medicine, it is highly recommended that you don’t choose a university that has a major in politics.
Ensure the completeness of campus facilities
Although most likely all the best universities have complete facilities, but making sure is still important to do. One of them is whether the campus has internet facilities, libraries, or other facilities that support lectures later. Laboratory is certainly important for those of you who are majoring in kursus perubatan. Likewise a basketball court or the like for those of you who major in sports.
Find out the location of the campus carefully
Outside of the academic side, another thing you need to pay attention to when choosing a campus is the location or surrounding area. Remember that you have to spend a lot of time in that place. That means you have to like the area. Whether it’s in the city center or in the interior. Also, consider how easy or difficult it is to get to and from home. Don’t get old on the street.
Consider financial factors
In developing countries like Indonesia, financial factors are undeniably still a problem in the world of education. Especially when it comes to college level. Therefore, it is important to take this into account when choosing a destination campus. For those who are smart and affluent, the choice may be whether they want to or not. But not so for those who are smart but do not have sufficient ability in funding.
Of course, ‘choose the cheapest option’ is not the right advice. It is therefore highly recommended seeking various available funding avenues. Looking for scholarships can be a solution.
