Usually, students will choose the university. Polytechnics are no less good than universities. Then, what are the benefits of studying at a polytechnic with a tuition agency? Compared to universities, the costs at polytechnics are cheaper, thus saving budget. If the student budget is insufficient to study at university, polytechnics can be an alternative option at an affordable price. Unlike universities, polytechnics provide more practice than theory so that graduates are ready for work. With the practices carried out, students will get hands-on experience that will help them when they work later.
Polytechnics used to only offer certificate and diploma programs. However, now polytechnics have offered up to the Postgraduate level so that students can get a full education without having to transfer to a university. The courses offered are varied and unique, such as carpentry, mechanics, and others. Tuition agency polytechnics usually focus more on work-ready majors such as engineering, business, communication, architecture, computer science and IT, and others. Students studying at polytechnics can complete their education in no time. Why? Because these students can only work with a Diploma which can be completed in one (1) to two (2) years. With a more practical program, students can be immediately ready for work so that a Diploma degree is sufficient to apply for work.
Tuition agency polytechnic educators in carrying out their educational activities must collaborate with industry to produce graduates who are ready to work. Industry must help polytechnics, especially for places for practical work or internships, so that polytechnic students already have sufficient industry experience to face the world of work, even before graduating from college. It is very unfortunate if the fulfillment of the executive workforce in Indonesia is filled with neighboring countries such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea. This condition is what will happen in the free market as it is today if the resources of our less skilled graduates adapt to field conditions so that they cannot meet industry qualifications.
The results of tracer studies that have been conducted by several polytechnics show that the ones most interested in by industry or the world of work are graduates from the Diploma III program because Industry tends to require implementing personnel at the middle level. This information is often missed by the public, because of the lack of understanding of this polytechnic education.
