Hinc lucem et pocula sacra
Terjemahan harafiah: "From here, light and sacred draughts".
Non-harafiah: "Dari universitas ini kami menerima pencerahan dan pengetahuan yang berharga".

Universitas Cambridge (Inggris: Cambridge University; Latin: Universitas Cantabrigiensis) adalah universitas kedua-tertua di dunia bahasa Inggris, dengan persyaratan masuk yang paling ketat di Britania Raya.

Catatan awal sudah tidak tersimpan lagi, namun universitas ini tumbuh dari sebuah perhimpunan sarjana di kota Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, Inggris, kemungkinan dibentuk pada 1209 oleh sarjana yang kabur dari Universitas Oxford setelah bertengkar dengan penduduk kota sana.

Universitas Oxford dan Cambridge, sering dijuluki Oxbridge, telah memiliki sejarah kompetisi yang lama satu sama lain, dan dipandang luas sebagai universitas paling elit dan bergengsi di Britania Raya. Berdasarkan sejarah, mereka telah menghasilkan sejumlah ilmuwan,penulis, dan politisi Britania yang terkenal.

Afiliasi dari Universitas Cambridge telah memenangkan 80 Penghargaan Nobel [1], lebih banyak dari universitas lain di dunia .[2]. Dari 80 pemenang Penghargaan Nobel ini, 70 pernah menghadiri Cambridge sebagai murid prasarjana atau pasca-sarjana, dan bukan sebagai "associate" riset, "fellow" atau profesor (Universita Chicago di urutan ke-2 dalam afiliasi pemenang Penghargaan Nobel, dengan 79 orang, tetapi hanya 30 yang pernah belajar di Universitas Chicago sebagai murid prasarjana atau pasca-sarjana).

Cambridge is a member of the Russell Group, a network of large, research-led British universities; the Coimbra Group, an association of leading European universities; the LERU (League of European Research Universities), and the IARU (International Alliance of Research Universities).

Cambridge adalah anggota dari Grup Russell (sebuah jaringan besar, universitas Britania yang berorientasi riset), Grup Coimbra (sebuah perhimpunan universitas terkemuka Eropa), dan LERU (League of European Research Universities, Liga Universitas Riset Eropa).


Dapatkah Siswa di Indonesia Bersekolah di Universitas Besar ini?

Cambridge Graduate 2009

Of course Indonesian people can study at Cambridge, and there is language support. If you want more information, I'd suggest getting hold of a university prospectus or contacting the university yourself. I recommend ignoring Clover who doesn't know how to be civil.

Apparently about 10% of undergraduates at Cambridge are international students. The number of international postgraduates is higher, closer to 40%.

Good English is a requirement of the university.

I quote:

"It is essential that your English language skills are good enough for you to undertake an intensive and challenging academic course that is taught and examined in English."

As for scholarship, I found this information:

"Cambridge Commonwealth and Overseas Trusts"

The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and the Cambridge Overseas Trust offer awards (mostly part cost) to overseas students, including affiliated students, who have been accepted for admission by a Cambridge College. You cannot apply for funding through the Trusts until you have been offered a place at one of the Colleges. At this point the College will send you full details of the Trust awards and an application form. All awards are means-tested.

"College Awards"

Some Colleges also offer partial financial support for overseas students. Further information about Trust and College awards can be obtained from College admissions offices. Prince Philip Scholarships for applicants from Hong Kong If you are a permanent resident of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region applying for a first degree at Cambridge, you are eligible to apply for one of these Scholarships. The Scholarships offer cash awards and means-tested support for tuition fees and maintenance.

You need to send your application for the Scholarship at the same time as you send in your application to Cambridge, to arrive by 15 October 2008. For further details and an application form write to: The Administrative Secretary, The Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong, c/o The Bank of East Asia Limited, 10 Des Voeux Road, Central, Hong Kong.

Hi Arip-

Thanks for the message. I am here at Cambridge because I applied and I got in, I suppose. :) I don't know... I just filled in the form, submitted it in, and they asked me to write 2 essays to help them decide whether they wanted me or otherwise, and it turned out that they wanted me and gave me an offer.

The process was really painful, though. You have to send 3 sets of application form and supporting documents;

1. Goes to the Board,

2. Goes to the College, and

3. Goes to the Department.

All three parties have to agree to accept you before you can study here. The Board usually sticks to the regulations. If you fail to meet even 1 requirement, they will say no. However, if the department really wants you, they will make an appeal and the Board may change their mind. :)

Anyway, hope this is useful for you. Good luck for your study, too!

The Gita Wirjawan Graduate Fellowship at The University of Cambridge

Two scholarships are offered annually to study for a one-year masters program in any field at the University of Cambridge.

"Cambridge was once one of a handful of universities, its influence primarily extending nationally and into continental Europe. The British Empire opened up new routes along which people and ideas travelled further. Today, we are one of many hundred research-intensive universities worldwide. Our home is a small island, yet a great deal of history gives us global reach and impact far beyond what might reasonably be expected from any simple notion of the connection between size on the one hand, and levels of power and ambition on the other"

Professor Alison Richard
Vice Chancellor, University of Cambridge

Cambridge, one of the world’s oldest universities, has attracted many of the very best minds since 1209. Today the university has grown to around 17,500 students (7,000 of whom are graduate students), and 3,000 teaching and administrative staff. Of the graduate students, 50 per cent come from overseas, and well over a third are women.

Historically, the university has had a very good reputation for both mathematics and the sciences. But it also has strong humanities and social science faculties. In the last two British Government research assessment exercise in 2001 and 2008 respectively, Cambridge was ranked first in the country. In 2006, a Thomson Scientific study showed that Cambridge has the highest research paper output of any British university, and is also the top research producer in 10 out of 21 major British research fields analysed.

Cambridge has over the course of its history built up a sizable number of alumni who are notable in their fields, both academic, and in the wider world. Officially, affiliates of the university have won a total of 83 Nobel Prizes. It has educated 15 British prime ministers, including the first Robert Walpole. At least twenty-three Heads of State or Heads of Government have attended Cambridge.
Selection Criteria

Applicants should have (a) a confirmed acceptance at any faculty at the University of Cambridge; (b) an excellent academic record with a first degree equivalent to a good Second Class (Upper) Honors or a GPA of at least 3.5; (c) a very good command of the English language; and (d) assessed to have outstanding potential for leadership in government, business, or civil society after graduation.

The application deadlines for 2010-11 vary according to different courses offered by the university. Further details of the application process can be found in the following website:


Terms and Conditions

Each fellowship is tenable only for a one-year masters program in any field at Cambridge University. The successful candidate is expected to complete his/her studies within the tenable period.

Each scholarship will cover the following:

* Tuition and other compulsory fees (as specified by Cambridge University);
* Monthly stipend; and
* Return air-ticket (economy class)

Hai Manusia
Hormati Ibumu
Yang Melahirkan dan Membesarkanmu

Darah Dagingmu Dari Air Susunya
Jiwa Ragamu Dari Kasih-sayangnya
Dialah Manusia Satu-satunya
Yang Menyayangimu Tanpa Ada Batasnya

Doa Ibumu Dikabulkan Tuhan
dan Kutukannya Jadi Kenyataan
Ridla Ilahi Karena Ridlanya
Murka Ilahi Karena Murkanya

Bila Kau Sayang Pada Kekasih
Lebih Sayanglah Pada Ibumu
Bila Kau Patuh Pada Rajamu
Lebih Patuhlah Pada Ibumu

Bukannya Gunung Tempat Kau Meminta
Bukan Lautan Tempat Kau Memuja

Bukan Pula Dukun Tempat Kau Menghiba
Bukan Kuburan Tempat Memohon Doa
Tiada Keramat Yang Ampuh Di Dunia
Selain Dari Doa Ibumu Jua.

Education in Uni Europa

Education in Uni Europa

Eropa Mulai Tertinggal dengan Asia di Sektor Pendidikan dan Kualitas SDM

Perkembangan pendidikan di Eropa, khususnya di Perancis dan Jerman ternyata tertinggal jauh dengan perkembangan sektor pendidikan di Asia. Hal ini terungkap dari hasil studi yang dilakukan seorang peneliti di Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Andreas Schleicher. Untuk itu ia mengingatkan Eropa untuk melakukan revolusi di sekolah-sekolah dan universitasnya serta membenahi sistem pengggolongan yang bias.

Dalam hasil studinya yang dirilis Senin (13/3), Schleicher menulis,"Saat ketika Eropa bersaing hampir dengan seluruh negara-negara yang menawarkan tenaga kerja dengan ketrampilan dan upah yang rendah, sudah lewat. Saat ini, negara-negara seperti China dan India mulai mempekerjakan tenaga kerja yang memiliki ketrampilan tinggi dengan upah yang tinggi pula. Situasinya sudah berbalik."

Menurut Schleicher, meningkatnya pendanaan pendidikan terutama untuk sekolah menengah dan pendidikan tinggi, membawa keuntungan ekonomi yang lebih baik bukan hanya untuk individu yang bersangkutan tapi juga negara secara keseluruhan.

Ia menunjuk 'keajaiban' yang terjadi Korea Selatan, negara yang pada era 1960an memiliki tingkat pendapatan yang lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan seluruh negara di Amerika Selatan, kini memiliki prosentase sumber daya manusia terdidik yang cukup tinggi, yaitu sekitar 97 persen di kalangan usia 25-34 tahun. Sementara negara-negara besar di Eropa seperti Inggris, Perancis dan Italia sedang berusaha keras untuk mempertahankan perekonomiannya, sedangkan Jerman malah sudah mengalami kejatuhan ekonominya.

"Perancis dan Jerman, yang meliputi 36 persen dari 11,6 triliun perekonomian Uni Eropa kini tidak lagi menjadi salah satu negara terkemuka di dunia dalam masalah ketrampilan dan pengetahuan," tutur Schleicher.

Dalam hal ini, ia juga mengkritik pemberlakuan kelas di masyarakat sebagai penghambat perkembangan pendidikan dan sumber daya terdidik di Eropa. "Masyarakat Eropa yang berasal dari keluarga dengan kesulitan sosial dan ekonomi, tidak mendapatkan kesempatan pendidikan yang sama dengan mereka yang berasal dari keluarga kelas menengah atas. Di banyak negara, data menunjukkan bahwa sekolah-sekolah di Eropa menerapkan perbedaan kelas berdasarkan status sosial dan ekonomi," katanya.

Lebih lanjut Schleiler mengungkapkan, mereka yang berasal dari keluarga kaya punya kesempatan empat kali lebih besar untuk mengenyam pendidikan yang lebih tinggi. Di samping itu, para pendidik di negara-negara Eropa juga tidak mau mengubah cara mereka mendidik seperti yang dianjurkan oleh para peneliti.

"Pendidikan di Eropa berkembang sebagai industru, para pendidiknya seolah terisolasi dan membangun cara mereka sendiri yang sudah kuno," tulis Schleicher.

Untuk mengubah kondisi ini, ia memberikan lima rekomendasi pada Eropa. Negara-negara Eropa menurutnya, harus membangun jaringan institusi pendidikan yang bebas guna memenuhi permintaan dan akuntablitasnya terjamin. Akses ke sekolah-sekolah harus diperbaiki dan mendorong adanya pembiayaan dari sektor publik dan swasta. Universitas-universitas, harus melakukan perubahan strategi yang disesuaikan dengan perkembangan manajemen modern, artinya universitas-universitas harus dikelola oleh sebuah badan dan bukan hanya oleh kalangan akademisi semata.
