FURTHER INFORMATION

Anton Lucanus

Indonesian language skills are becoming increasingly desired by employers and UWA's new courses allow a combination of Indonesian with Asian studies, politics, commerce, or in my case, sciences. You also have the unique option of earning credit while you work or study in Indonesia.

INDNI Indonesian major

The Indonesian major enables you to achieve a high level of fluency in the language of Australia's closest neighbour and the world's fourth largest country. Indonesian is a relatively easy language to learn as it uses the Roman script and is simple to spell and pronounce. As a result, Indonesian is a popular choice for beginners. People have written and spoken Indonesian since ancient times, leaving a rich legacy of literature and poetry. As well as learning how to speak, read and write Indonesian, you will be enriched through exposure to this fascinating and dynamic culture. You will have the exciting opportunity to spend a semester studying at an Indonesian university—a life-changing experience not to be missed.

Admission to this major requires a pass in WACE Indonesian: Second Language IND2A/2B. It is incompatible with a pass in WACE Indonesian: Second Language IND3A/3B.

Outcomes

Students are able to (1) operate effectively in complex, in-depth discussions or monologues in social and academic work situations; (2) understand complex texts of an intellectual nature and detailed texts in particular areas of interest and expertise; and (3) express in writing, abstract and complex issues and ideas.

Choosing your degree-specific major

You must satisfy the requirements of a degree-specific major before you complete your course. The flexible structure of an undergraduate course allows you to try out a number of different subjects to see what interests you before nominating your degree-specific major. You have the choice to either nominate your degree-specific major when you first enrol in the course or delay nominating it until your second year.

To plan the first year of your study without nominating a degree-specific major, you are advised to choose units that will pave the way to two or more degree-specific majors that are of interest to you. For examples of the choice of units available in first year, search the first-year study plans .

To fully understand the structure of an undergraduate course, read the course structure information and the Undergraduate Degree Course Rules.
