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 at or above INDO2405 Indonesian 5 or INDO2205 Indonesian Advanced I; and ASIA3301 Indonesian Politics and Society or ASIA3001 Indonesian Politics and Culture. The details of the academic program that students undertake 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 very 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.
Students are able to develop, through six to eight weeks of intensive instruction in Indonesian language and culture, 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 arrangements are in the hands of the host university in Indonesia.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
