to Study in Holland

It may cost a view extra years, but finally I can say now IMG_8049
that Alhamdullilah i am GRADUATED!
Me AND my friends, all Alhamdullilah. : D

So what is the next step? For me as an Indonesian ex-pupil from SIN,  I can say the world is open. This is the cause of the several’s diplomas I got. Anyways this post is about to inform you guys about the many levels of higher education here in Holland.

So. for you guys out there when you have a scholarship or you just plan
to go to study in Holland, it is sometimes nice to know that after your high school there, here in The Netherlands are three kinds of high educations. The first we all know are the universities(WO), the second is the applied universities (HBO), and third is the secondary vocational education (MBO).

It happened a lot that people do not know what the difference are between there three, and in particular the first two, WO and HBO.

The third one, which is the secondary vocational education or here called the MBO is a school far away from university level. I’m not going further in it. It is just like that. More important is just the difference between HBO and WO, or the applied university and The University.

When we want to earn the highest salary and the best jobs the say “Go to University!! It will make life better to live”
I have just doubts about that saying but yeah.
So To go to University is a big step, obviously. But there we are, the university is just more theoretical, abstract, less guidance, high education rate and research focused.
Different than the applied university. Maybe the name says it too but this so called university is more practical oriented, concrete, more guidance, relatively low education rate and education-oriented.

Just to help you guys.
