Content This is an in-country unit that enables students to undertake intensive language study at a range of approved universities in Indonesia to develop their oral and written skills to a high level. It is offered as an alternative to two Indonesian language units at UWA. The details of the program that students do at their host universities in Indonesia depends on which academic units students choose to take at the host universities.
Outcomes Through six to eight weeks of intensive instruction in Indonesian language and culture, students develop their oral and written skills to a high level and achieve a high level of familiarity with social norms, culture and language use in Indonesia, preparing them for a wide range of social and employment contexts.
Assessment Assessment is determined and managed by the host institution.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
