Everybody knows that studying in different places together will create a new challenge for someone. Everyone struggles to finish a study, especially when we must finish the same credits at the same time. It will be a hard reality to do, but as we know, it turns out to be only a myth. Because of the ease of information that we can get from the internet. When was the last time we had to be complicated because of our ignorance of what else we needed to learn by double degree methods? So, why should we pursue a dual degree?

On Thursday, October 22, 2021, one of the departments at Ciputra University, Networking and Partnership (NNP), held a UCIC Talk Show Volume 3 on the theme of “Why Should You Join Dual Degree”. With the opening of MC, Felicia Yohana, and Natasha Valerie, 60 participants were enthusiastic about the opening of two alumnae of UC, Grace Rosary Utomo, S.M., BA, and Timothy Orchard Setiawan, S.M., BA. But before that, the event was opened by a few short greetings from the Head of NNP, Mrs. Halim Suryani, and also the head of UCIC, Ms. Gracia Ongkowijoyo. She also explains the new program of NNP called “UCIC Ambassador” that provides many benefits to students from the experience and achievement that NNP gives.

“The reason why you must do a dual degree at Coventry University is to save money to earn two degrees in sequence to study abroad at a reputable university, get a UK degree, get international experience, and also network and gain knowledge that you will get from here,” said Grace. She talks about courses also at Coventry, like the thoughtful lectures, learning systems that support you in learning from real-case studies, as well as lecture and seminar classes. She also talks about the course tasks that are given in the form of 1-2 tasks per course. They also give mentoring time and provide 24-hour library services that are helpful for Coventry students who need as much literacy as the university system that respects research.

Then, questions about accommodation and social lifestyle will be the most frequently asked by everyone who wants to study abroad. At this time, Timothy was talking about the accommodation that everyone needs to study there in general. “Coventry provides wonderful rooms, excellent security and protection, strategic locations, and also provides the communal spaces to do some socializing for study, to dine, or maybe to work out,” said the boy who worked at OFIculture Family Business. He also said that there are so many clubs and societies to join. There are also lots of events provided by the Student Union.

The Portrait of QnA sessions of UCIC Talks led by Ms.Gracia Ongkowijoyo about the difficulty and the most important things that must be prepared before applying for a dual degree program.

Aside from improving your English skills, everyone who studies at Coventry University will have the opportunity to learn the language of another country around the world. This university provides instructions in over 20+ languages that can be run in the months of February and October. This course was run once a week with a total of 10 meetings. You will get a certificate of completing this course when you attend at least 70% of the sessions. The fun and happy things that you can do are travel around London, watch a football match, attend a music concert, and visit Christmas markets. “Great locations are not too crowded and not too quiet, affordable living costs, and the ability to do a part-time job for 20 hours per week are the main reasons why you must get a dual degree at Coventry,” said Timothy. 

So with that, they tell you about the tips for joining the double degree program from IELTS and TOEFL to get a VISA. They also say that you must be prepared to face difficulties when you are there, like time management, the accents of friends that can be confusing, and also terrible homesickness.
