Melanjutkan pendidikan ke tingkat yang lebih tinggi di luar negeri bisa jadi merupakan impian kita semua, termasuk saya. Namun sayangnya terkadang kendala ekonomi membuat kita harus berpikir ulang. Salah satu solusi adalah dengan mencari beasiswa. Dan salah satu hal jalan untuk mendapatkan beasiswa adalah kita sudah mempunyai calon pembimbing (professor-red) di universitas target kita.

Pertanyaannya bagaimana cara mendapatkan pembimbing?Langkah awal yang paling mudah adalah mencoba menghubungi calon pembimbing yang kita rasa sesuai bidang penelitiannya dengan kita via email. Berikut saya share contoh email untuk komunikasi awal dengan calon pembimbing.
