I chose this university because this campus is one of the international campuses with an Islamic environment where there are still very strong Islamic values ??in it. In addition, because students here come from various countries, we can expand their friendship and social networks, especially in job opportunities. Making friends with many people from abroad is clear evidence that it will increase enthusiasm for learning and competing well. In addition, the lecturers at this university are very helpful for their children in understanding lessons easily and well.
Course Curriculum :
My opinion on my subject curriculum is that it is very well presented knowledge and very deep content. The meaning of this word is when students learn and teachers provide knowledge, the container in it makes children's learning become increasingly open minded and have a broad view of that subject. When the teacher asks students to make research from the subject, it is show that the lessons learned from the course for students are satisfied with what they researched and believed the students do it well and understand what the teacher's concept asks for.
I choose my university because i want to gain knowlegde, had a new experince, learn another country culture and also i want to make link with many people.
