Prospective Students

Bagi international student yang akan menuntut ilmu ke Inggris – termasuk dari Indonesia – Sheffield adalah salah satu pilihan utama.  Ada dua perguruan tinggi di Sheffield yang menjadi pilihan pelajar Indonesia, yaitu the University of Sheffield dan Sheffield Hallam University.

Pilihan ini tidak salah sebab, tahun 2001 lalu misalnya, University of Sheffield “voted as number one student choice” karena fasilitas pendidikannya yang excellent“. Student Union dari the University of Sheffield terpilih sebagai the Best Students Union in Britain oleh the Virgin Alternative Guide to British Universities karena fasilitas dan aktivitasnya yang luar biasa. Sheffield University Student Union memilika lebih dari 200 unit kegiatan (societies and sports). Biaya hidup yang masih relatif murah dibandingkan dengan kota-kota lain, serta lingkungannya yang aman adalah faktor-faktor yang menjadikan Sheffield ideal sebagai tempat studi.

Para pelajar Indonesia ini berhimpun dalam Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia (disingkat PPI) Sheffield.   Seperti halnya PPI-PPI lainnya di United Kingdom, PPI Sheffield tergabung lagi dalam suatu organisasi induk tingkat nasional, yaitu PPI-UK. Seperti telah dikemukakan di halaman tentang Indosoc, para anggota PPI-UK pada dasarnya adalah anggota dan motor Indosoc juga.

Sungguhpun masih terdapat banyak kekurangan, namun halaman ini diharapkan dapat menjadi pembuka pintu ke arah terbentuknya komunikasi dan “networking” dengan para alumni Sheffield. Syukur-syukur kalau jaring komunikasi ini malah berbuah kerjasama yang menghasilkan tambahan rezeki. (Julison Arifin-2002, edited)

Achievements

For years and years, Indosoc has always been known for their achievements and involvement within the Universities’ and Perhimpunan Pelajar Indonesia – UK activities. The diversity of Indonesian culture helps us a lot in presenting a wide range of different cultures and faces of Indonesia. Here are an example of what we have achieved:

  • International Food Evening – November 2000

International Food Evening Event was held by the University of Sheffield every year. This year it was held in Octagent Centre and the number of countries contribute to the event was quite some. Indonesian Society always participated on this event every year and this year the Balinese decoration replaced the Padang to become the main view in the decoration of Indonesian Society’s stall.

Our architect from Sheffield Hallam University, Kastawan had design and layout. His coordonation to set up the stall with Indonesian society contribution made the stall become public most attention! And we were quite sure hoping to be elected as one of the criteria … the best that night. And it was the dream comes true.

After years of participating in this event for the first time, Indonesia Society got the award, elected as The Best Stall. It was the combination of proud, thanks and bless. All this stuff dedicate to the person and Indonesian Society in Sheffield who contribute to the performance, not only the set up decoration but also for the food and all the stallers 🙂

  • March 2001

On March for the academic year, the event that we have to face is
The Cultural Evening. We did prepared well this year as angklung always become the attraction for foreigner, they might wonder how come bamboo can contribute nice harmony and perform good rythm?Indonesian Society answered those all questions that night. The major of Sheffield City came and the representatives of Indonesian Society gave the souvenir to the Major, the miniatur of Angklung, so she might practise herself at home 🙂

Many thanks for all contribution. See you next year.

  • April 2001

The International Students Committee, University of Sheffield has nominate Indonesian Society into 3 categories for this year (2000/2001) i.e.  The Best Society, The Best President and The Best in Welfare Provision.

As The International Ball held before Easter, we knew the decision that Indonesian Society was elected as to get an honour as The Best President. Congatulation! As a humble person as usual he said that this success belongs to Indonesian Society in Sheffield not for particular individual only. He thanks to all contribution given by Indoensian Society for any activities held through this year.

Congratulation again.

  • International Food Evening 2002 di University of Sheffield

Walaupun akhir-akhir ini nama Indonesia agak “kurang bisa dibanggakan” di dunia internasional, namun akhir-pekan lalu masih ada juga celah kebanggaan bagi kami di kota Sheffield yang sedang didera musim dingin ini.  Bendera merah putih ditampilkan di panggung; kata “Indonesia” disebut dengan nada penghargaan; hadirin dari berbagai bangsa berdiri memberikan applausnya.

Syukur Alhamdulillah……….   Pada acara International Food Evening Festival 2002 di University of Sheffield yang berlangsung pada hari Sabtu 16 November kemarin, PPI Sheffield (atau: Indosoc, singkatan dari the Indonesian Students Society) telah mendapat perhargaan “The Best Stall Decoration Award”.   Perhargaan ini diraih oleh Indosoc untuk yang KETIGA KALINYA BERTURUT-TURUT.

Ketua dan pengurus berganti terus, namun Indosoc terus menyabet penghargaan.  Fenomena apakah ini??  Setelah penyelidikan yang mendalam, kami menemukan satu hal yang selalu ada dalam tiga kemenangan tsb, yaitu: sosok YS sebagai penjaga stall legendaris…..   Begitu serasi penampilannya dalam pakaian daerah Lombok di stall Indosoc setiap tahun pada International Food Evening Festival, sehingga tak terbayangkan acara tahun depan tanpa kehadiran beliau…  Sampai-sampai tersebar issu, jika tahun depan ybs masih berada di Sheffield juga, mungkin Indosoc tidak akan diundang lagi sebagai peserta, karena kasihan student’s society lainnya tidak kebagian menang.

Selamat kepada Pengurus Indosoc, terutama para anggota “Satgas Fut Ivining” yang telah mempersiapkan stall Indosoc pada malam-malam yang dingin itu.   Terimakasih atas segala bantuan dan dukungan keluarga besar Indosoc dari yang tertua sampai yang junior; dari yang mendekor, mengangkut, memasak, meminjamkan alat sampai kepada supporter dan penggembira dari luar kota; juga terimakasih kpd mas Narno yang telah meminjamkan satu set wayang kulit.

Terimakasih Tuhan………… mohon tunjukkan juga jalan yang benar supaya kami dapat berhasil dalam studi dan karir……….(Julison Arifin – 2002, edited)

  • International Food Evening 2003 di University of Sheffield

The Two Universities

The University of Sheffield

TheUniversity of Sheffield developed from three local institutions: the Sheffield School of Medicine, Firth College and the Sheffield Technical School. Of the three, the School of Medicine was by far the oldest, being founded in 1828. Its early history was very insecure and it was saved from collapse by the opening of Firth College, which took over the teaching of all basic science subjects to medical students.

Firth College was one of a group of university colleges founded during thelatter part of the 19th century. It developed out of the Cambridge University Extension Movement, a scheme designed to bring university teaching to the large towns and cities of England, the majority of which lacked any provisionof this kind. The success of these courses in Sheffield led Mark Firth, a local steel manufacturer, to establish the College in 1879 as a centre for the teaching of Arts and Science subjects.

The Sheffield Technical School was the product of local concern about the need for better technical training of the men responsible for running the great industries of Sheffield, particularly the manufacture of steel. Amovement was started within Firth College to collect funds for the creation of a technical department, which was established in 1884 as the Sheffield Technical School. In 1886 the School moved to new premises on the site ofthe old Grammar School at St George’s Square.

In 1897, the three institutions were amalgamated by Royal Charter to formthe University College of Sheffield. This step was part of the plan to link up with the Victoria University, a federation of the University Colleges at Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds. By 1900, however, the Federal University was disintegrating and within the space of a few years independent universities were formed from the three University Colleges. On 31 May 1905 the University of Sheffield came into being on the grant of its Royal Charter, and in July the new Firth Court Building on Western Bank was opened by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. St George’s Square remained the centre of Applied Science departments, with Arts, Medicineand Science being housed at Western Bank.

The mile-long ‘campus’ now stretches almost unbroken from Mappin Street into Crookesmoor, with student residences concentrated in suburbs to the west of the University. The full-time student population now numbers 16,400,with a further 4,000 students studying part-time.

Sheffield Hallam University

The history of Sheffield Hallam University stretches back to the early years ofQueen Victoria´s reign. Its roots are in the best traditions of centuries of Sheffield craftsmanship – traditions of innovation, creativity and pride in a job well done. In 1843, as the industrial revolution gathered pace and Sheffield was on the verge of becoming the steel, tool and cutlery making capital of the world, Sheffield School of Design was founded.

After a distinguished history as one of Britain´s top schools of art and design for more than a century, it became one of the colleges thatmerged with the city’s College of Technology to form Sheffield Polytechnic in 1969. In 1976 the Polytechnic was renamed Sheffield City Polytechnic when it absorbed the city’s two teacher training colleges -one of which was itself founded back in 1902. Finally, in 1992, the City Polytechnic earned the right to the title ofuniversity and to degree-awarding powers – recognition that it had already achieved the necessary status – and became Sheffield Hallam University. With almost 24,000 students, 3,000staff and more than 400 courses to choose from, the University is the country´s sixth largest.

From the viewpoint of Indonesian Students

Sheffield lies on the borders of Yorkshire and Derbyshire and was once famous as the original steel city for producing cutlery and tools. It is the fifth largest city in the UK, is surrounded by beautiful countryside and there are over 50 parks within its boundaries. Almost half of Sheffield falls within the Peak District National Park, whose hills, moorlands, rivers and ravines make an exciting addition to the more usual English landscape of undulating meadows, golden corn fields and thatched cottages. The city is supported with a lively nightlife consisting of city centre bars, pubs and clubs, with plenty of restaurants, shops. It is also home to Meadowhall, the second largest shopping complex of its type in Europe. The Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield Arena and the City Hall stage every rock, pop and classical music tour visiting Britain. The Don Valley stadium is also used to host national and international athletics and team sporting events.There are two universities in Sheffield, the University of Sheffield, which is the oldest one, founded in 1905, and the place where I am studying and the second one is the Sheffield Hallam University. Both main campuses are in the central part of the city, but the university buildings spread into the surrounding countryside. Both universities have large students union representing over 50,000 students who study here and they fund over many societies reflecting the huge range of interests shared by students.(Hira Meidia-2001)

Sheffield used to be a metal industrial city and now, while most industrial areas are abandoned, it is developed as University City and ´modern culture industries´. There are two universities located in this city: University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.

It is quite hard to find a city in Indonesia, which has similar townscape as Sheffield. Perhaps because Indonesian cities are just ´recently´ developed their industrial area and the urban-rural places forms between Indonesia and Britain is not comparable. As an Indonesian student living here, in our view Sheffield is a good place to live compare to other cities in Britain because of the low living cost and all the places for student´s activities, such as city centre and university campuses, are within walking distance. However, if you are Indonesian and try to find a place to study in Britain, we would advice you to make sure that you come to a university that really suitable to your expectation and study program that you wish to accomplish. As a learning process, an academic study does not depend on the facilities provided. It depends on the student´s motivation to learn and ability to comprehend the curriculum materials.(Wiwik D. Pratiwi-2001)

Sheffield

Sheffield adalah kota nomor lima terbesar di United Kingdom. Ibukota South Yorkshire county ini terletak di daerah perbukitan di tengah-tengah pulau Inggris, sekitar 250 km di utara London.Dari sekitar 500.000 populasi, sepersepuluhnya adalah student pada dua perguruan tinggi terkenal, yaitu University of Sheffield dan Sheffield Hallam University.

Sheffield merupakan lokasi favorit untuk tempat pertemuan. Sebagai ilustrasi, letaknya yang sentral seakan-akan dikelilingi kota-kota penting lainnya, seperti Manchester (100 km west), Leeds (60 km north) atau Nottingham (40 km south-east).

Angkutan darat:

Exit nomor 31, 32, 33, 34 atau 35 pada Motorway M1 adalah cara termudah untuk mencapai Sheffield dengan mobil pribadi. Petunjuk arah cukup banyak dan secara jelas menuntun perjalanan ke Sheffield city centre.

Sheffield Interchange adalah suatu terminal terpadu untuk semua moda angkutan darat seperti bus antar kota, bus kota, tram dan kereta api. Fasilitasnya meliputi waiting room, toilet, toko-toko, cafe, locker serta information centre.

Selain sebagai simpul transfer antara semua moda angkutan kota dengan intercity buses, Sheffield Interchange yang letaknya di depan train station juga disinggahi oleh National Express Airport, yaitu bus khusus yang menghubungkan Sheffield dengan beberapa International Airport seperti Manchester, Leeds-Bradford, East Midland, London Heathrow atau London Gatwick.

Jaringan bus antar kota National Express beroperasi selama 24 jam pada dua terminal antar kota: Sheffield Interchange dan Meadowhall Interchange.

Kereta api East Coast menghubungkan Sheffield dengan London St Pancras. Frekuensi keberangkatan adalah setiap jam; dan waktu tempuh 2:30 jam. Kereta ini singgah di sejumlah kota, antara lain: Luton, Leicester, Derby, atau Chesterfield. Dari London St Pancras, bisa langsung disambung, tanpa pindah stasiun ke Eurostar: Paris, Brussels…

Selain itu, CrossCountry juga menghubungkan Aberdeen dan Edinburgh di Scotland dengan kota-kota utama di belahan selatan England, misalnya Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Plymouth, Exeter dsb.

Di setasiun Sheffield Midland, banyak kereta api lokal dari/ke kota-kota kecil di pelosok South Yorkshire seperti Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley dll.

Angkutan udara:

Robin Hood Airport Doncaster-Sheffield dan Manchester International Airport adalah dua bandara international terdekat dengan Sheffield. Para pendatang dianjurkan mendarat di salah satu dari kedua bandara ini, karena letaknya yang cukup dekat dan keduanya merupakan bandara tingkat internasional. Namun demikian, bila dikehendaki, Sheffield tetap terhubung dengan airport utama di Inggris (seperti Heathrow atau Gatwick, keduanya di London) melalui National Express Airport yaitu pelayanan bus express antar bandara yang selalu tiba dan berangkat on-time di Sheffield Interchange.
