Seek knowledge in the land of ginseng! This statement is consistent with Monica Cherish, a student of Pelita Harapan University (UPH) Communication Studies program, who was selected to participate in the student exchange scholarship program at Handong Global University (HGU), one of UPH’s partner universities in South Korea. Monica will be studying at HGU for one year from February 2022.
Monica’s opportunity to complete a one-year study at HGU is a result of UPH’s partnership with the Government of South Korea through the Korea Global Scholarship Program (KGSP). Besides KGSP, UPH has also established partnerships with universities on several continents (America, Australia, Europe and Asia) to organize a student exchange program, through which UPH offers students the opportunity to study at partner universities outside of Indonesia for two semesters. The student exchange program offers numerous advantages, including increased international quality education, insight, and networking. This opportunity also allows UPH students to learn about global culture and experiences. UPH students wishing to participate in this program must meet the following requirements and criteria: have completed 3 semesters at UPH, have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0, including a minimum TOEFL score of 550, and others.
Due to the limited number of scholarships available, Monica was able to meet all requirements and gain valuable opportunities through a rigorous selection process. “I am grateful and proud of the opportunity offered by UPH where I received a public lecture on leadership development and management. I hope that the knowledge gained will be a valuable source of experience for me in the future when I start a business. Also, while at HGU, I get to meet and network with
friends from all over the world,” said Monica, a UPH class of 2020.
Monica receives a variety of benefits through this student exchange program, including housing, residency, pocket money, and health insurance. Monica also had the opportunity to learn the language and culture of South Korea.
“During my time at UPH, this student exchange program to South Korea became an unforgettable experience for me. There is much to see and do here, and cultural diversity is found here. We are also ready to take part in the presentation of the Spring Festival, where each country will present its own traditional dances. Indonesian students will present the Saman dance from Aceh!” said Monica.
UPH is ready to facilitate students who wish to participate in the student exchange program abroad. UPH will continue to provide its students with opportunities to acquire knowledge and improve quality through a strong and extensive network of strategic partnerships with universities around the world.
