Record high of academic prizes awarded to Indonesian students at UTS Insearch

Nine students recognised at a special ceremony

Nine students from Indonesia have received prizes in acknowledgement of achieving the highest marks in their courses at UTS Insearch in Sydney last semester.

UTS Insearch, the pathway to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia’s number 1 young university, held a special Graduation and Prizegiving Ceremony to celebrate the academic excellence of its students on 8 August 2018.

Indonesian student took out many awards in two categories: Outstanding Graduate Awards for students who achieve the highest Grade Point Average (GPA) overall in their course, and the Dean’s Merit Awards for students who topped their course in their first semester of study.

Five students from Indonesia were awarded Outstanding Graduate Awards for their meritorious work. They are Joshua Gavin Valerie from Bandung and Louis Pranata from Jakarta for the Diploma of Information Technology (who tied for equal first), and Jesslyn Iskandar from Surabaya, Rania Metta Martono from Jakarta and Razin Agida Kaharuba from Jakarta who all shared the top marks for UTS Foundation Studies.

The four Indonesian recipients for the Dean’s Merit for their highest performance during their first semester at UTS Insearch are: Nathalie Asia from Jakarta (Diploma of Business); Karin Setiawan from Bandung (Diploma of Design and Architecture); Jason Sastra from Bandung (Diploma of Information Technology) and Verren Ratana Pangestu Lo from Jakarta (UTS Foundation Studies).

The Dean of Studies for UTS Insearch, Tim Laurence said, “Our Indonesian student prize winners should be tremendously proud of their achievements, and wish them ongoing success in their studies.”

“Every semester, we present academic awards to acknowledge and celebrate formally and publicly the outstanding achievements of students at UTS Insearch. It is a way to demonstrate our commitment and confidence in our students, and to encourage them to keep succeeding,” said Mr Laurence.

Louis Pranata said that his study at UTS Insearch is preparing him up for a career in data analytics.

“Employers are demanding more people with the ability to interpret big data, draw conclusions and communicate them clearly. My study has set me up with the skills I need to do just that,” Louis said.

Reflecting on his time at UTS Insearch, Razin said he gained many practical skills during his diploma program.

“One of the good things is that UTS Insearch is a little bit more flexible – it gives you more time to practice English and it’s designed for university studies. I find it supportive and teachers are friendly and kind. The most important thing about them is they want to help you with your studies,” Razin said.

Rania Metta Martono, who dreams of becoming an animator, is motivated to success by her love of drawing.

“I enjoy character design, like illustrating a children’s book or drawing for animation studios – that’s something I’m passionate about, it’s not just working because of money, but this is something that I love. I have focused on drawing since I was in secondary school, and I am focusing more on developing my style because that’s very important as an animator,” Rania said.

Outstanding Graduate for the Diploma of IT, Joshua Gavin Valerie said he was extremely proud to receive the prize and a further scholarship in acknowledgement of his success.

“I can show my hard work and I can put it on my resume. My family and friends are proud of me. I also received a UTS Insearch to UTS Pathways Scholarship, which covers half of my tuition [in his undergraduate course at UTS] – I didn’t expect that at all,” Joshua said.

Suatu sumber daya beragam bahasa yang baru dan menarik 7 Alasan Baik untuk Diuji HIV Sekarang direncanakan akan diluncurkan selama minggu pengujian HIV tahun ini dimulai
tanggal 1 Juni.

Diproduksi oleh MHAHS dan Positive Life NSW, sumber daya baru yang mudah dibaca ini menampilkan orang-orang biasa yang menggunakan bahasa sehari-hari untuk menjelaskan
banyaknya manfaat dari tes HIV yang teratur.

Menurut Barbara Luisi, Manajer MHAHS, sumber daya ini langsung melengkapi tema kampanye tahun ini

“Tidak pernah dites HIV? Dapatkan Tes Hari Ini”,

Ada banyak alasan untuk dites HIV. Hampir satu dari sepuluh orang Australia tetap tidak menyadari status HIV mereka, tidak mendpatkan perawatan medis HIV tepat waktu dan dapat menularkan virus ke orang lain tanpa mengetahuinya. Mengikuti tes adalah
satu-satunya cara untuk mengetahui dengan pasti. ‘Tujuh Alasan Baik untuk menguji’ yang baru memberikan kepada orang-orang informasi yang sederhana dan mudah
dimengerti mengenai tes HIV”, kata Ms Luisi.

Didanai oleh NSW Health, sumber daya ini tersedia online diwww.mhahs.org.au dalam bahasa Arab, Cina, Indonesia, Portugis, Spanyol, Thailand, dan Vietnam.

HIV masih menjadi masalah kesehatan masyarakat dengan perkiraan 26.444 orang yang hidup dengan HIV di Australia pada tahun 2016.

Pada sepuluh tahun terakhir ini, hampir satu dari sepuluh warga Australia yang baru didiagnosis dengan HIV berbicara bahasa lain di rumah selain bahasa Inggris.

Craig Cooper, Chief Executive Officer dari Positive Life NSW mengatakan

“Orang-orang dari berbagai latar belakang terus menghadapi hambatan untuk pilihan pencegahan, pengobatan dan perawatan HIV yang tepat. “

Bahwa meningkatkan kesadaran tes HIV di antara komunitas CALD adalah sangat penting jika kita ingin mencapai target ambisius kita untuk menghilangkan penularan HIV pada tahun 2020.

Kenyamanan tes HIV adalah alasan lain mengapa orang harus dites untuk HIV, kata Luisi. “Sangat mudah untuk dites HIV, dengan banyak pilihan yang tersedia saat ini. Tes HIV bersifat rahasia.

Sekarang orang-orang dengan risiko HIV yang lebih tinggi di seluruh NSW untuk kenyamanan, mereka juga lebih mudah dan lebih cepat dapat memesan perangkat pengujian di rumah dengan gratis secara online.”

Alat tes HIV di rumah, Tes HIV Uji Darah Kering (DBS) memungkinkan perorangan untuk memesan alat pengambil contoh gratis secara online, mengambil contoh mereka sendiri di rumah mereka sendiri dan mengirimkannya ke laboratorium untuk pengujian dan manajemen hasilnya. Anda tidak perlu pergi ke klinik atau dokter untuk melakukan tes ini. Perlengkapan pengujian dapat dipesan dari http://www.hivtest.health.nsw.gov.au yang juga memiliki informasi dalam berbagai bahasa termasuk bahasa Inggris yang sederhana. MHAHS melakukan beberapa inisiatif selama Minggu Pengujian HIV termasuk kampanye media etnis dalam delapan Bahasa, serangkaian pesan Facebook dan Alat Minggu Pengujian HIV gratis yang berisi semua aset digital untuk digunakan oleh organisasi lain.

These three students have gone on to win the Outstanding Graduate Award in their respective fields:

 

Brenda Jie from Medan,
Diploma of Architecture and Design

She describes her transition from school in Indonesia to studying in Australia as being a fun and exciting experience, with the support of UTS Insearch.

“When I first came here, I began to meet a lot of new people and I felt that UTS Insearch was an easier place for me to start off. You get the basics of everything, the tutors and classmates are friendly.”

She now plans to direct her talent for art and design into a career as a professional animator, and has commenced her studies at UTS in a Bachelor of Design in Animation.

 

David Gunawan from Pematangsianta,
Diploma of Information Technology

He has also now commenced studies at UTS, in the Bachelor of IT in Data Analytics, and is looking forwarding to using his education to gain practical experience in Australia.

“I started part time work during my second semester so I had to learn how to balance my time between work, study and my social life,” he said.

Aditya Wijaya from Bekasi,
Diploma of Engineering

He is following in his both his parents’ footsteps in becoming an engineer.

“Part of my aspiration has been to study abroad in Australia and to take the knowledge I gain back to Indonesia. I’d like to use engineering as a way to strengthen relations between Australia and Indonesia,” he said.

“I feel quite humbled, because to get here I had a lot of help from other people, so I want this award to be a gift for them, so that they can be proud of me.”

Dalam rangka menyambut pesta demokrasi serentak di Indonesia, PPIA University of Melbourne telah membingkai ranah politik melalui acara talk-show tahunannya, The Forum. Pilkada akan menjadi topik utama dalam perbincangan para narasumber kompeten dari Indonesia. PPIA University of Melbourne percaya bahwa sudah sepatutnya bagi generasi muda untuk mengambil sikap inisiatif terhadap bangsanya. Sayangnya, hal tersebut sering kali menjadi pertentangan tersendiri ketika bahasan politik mulai muncul di perbincangan sehari-hari.

 

Bulan Maret lalu, The Forum kembali dengan tema Turmoil or Opportunity, yang membahas seputar politik Indonesia dan Pilkada mendatang. Acara ini telah diselenggarahkan pada tanggal 23 Maret 2018 berlokasi di Outcome.life, Carlton. Tujuan di balik acara ini berupa menambah kesadaran anak muda terhadap politik Indonesia, menunjukan bahwa bicara politik bukanlah suatu topik yang berat dan memberi wawasan yang dapat mereka gunakan saat memilih Kepala Daerah selanjutnya.

 

PPIA University of Melbourne telah mendapat kesempatan untuk bekerja sama dengan institusi media online generasi muda Indonesia yang berfokus pada isu sosial politik terhangat, Asumsi.co. Sejak 2017, konsep kerja Asumsi yang membahas politik secara ringan dan membawa konsep anak muda menjadi sorotan Metro TV, dan pada akhirnya menghasilkan program baru, OpiniOn. The Forum 5: Turmoil or Opportunity telah menerbangkan dua pendiri Asumsi.co, Pangeran Siahaan dan Iman Sjafei, untuk berbagi ilmu, dan “mengobrol” tentang, seputaran politik dengan cara santai kepada mahasiswa Indonesia di Melbourne. Konsul Jenderal RI Melbourne, Ibu Spica A. Tutuhatunewa, juga ikut datang untuk memberi presentasi mengenai perkembangan politik Indonesia.

 

Dengan sekitar 60 mahasiswa Indonesia yang hadir ke acara, The Forum tahun ini berisi dengan diskusi antara mahasiswa dan pembicara mengenai isu-isu yang mencengkram. Tidak hanya kedatangan dari mahasiswa Indonesia University of Melbourne, mahasiswa Indonesia dari universitas lain seperti Monash University dan RMIT juga ikut hadir ke acara. Dengan ini, kami harap PPIA University of Melbourne telah berhasil dalam membangkitkan semangat untuk berpartisipasi dalam area politik di Indonesia, karena di tangan merekalah masa depan Indonesia berada.

 

Acara The Forum oleh PPIA University of Melbourne akan selalu hadir setiap tahunnya, mengangkat topik hangat yang berbeda-beda, untuk memberikan wawasan kepada mahasiswa Indonesia maupun non-Indonesia dan memberi ruangan untuk menyuarakan pendapat dan berdiskusi.

 

Nantikan acara The Forum selanjutnya dan follow media sosial PPIA University of Melbourne agar berita akan acara-acara selanjutnya tidak akan terlewatkan:
