Unit Overview


This is a full-semester unit which enables students to undertake intensive language study at a university in Indonesia to develop their oral and written skills to a high level. It is offered as an alternative to any Indonesian language unit above the level of INDO2403 Indonesian 3 as well as ASIA3001 Indonesian Politics and Culture. The details of the academic program that students do at their host university in Indonesia depend on which units students choose to take. Besides taking language subjects, students normally study a range of regular non-language subjects offered by the host university in which the language of instruction is Indonesian. As well as enabling students to gain a high level of fluency in spoken and written Indonesian, the unit exposes students to a whole new world of experience. Living and studying independently in Indonesia for a semester helps students develop a range of invaluable life skills and cultural competencies.
