Study in Indonesia


Indonesia is a fantastic tourist place and witnesses visitors from all around the world every year. This republic country has a rich intriguing and diverse culture. It also attracts its share of international students for education every year.


The education system in Indonesia can be broken down in the following stages:

1.    Primary schooling starts at the age of 3 with kindergarten which is further classified as Class A and Class B each of one year. Kindergarten is not compulsory for the native children because even today, a large part of Indonesia cannot access private kindergarten schools.

2.    Next, elementary education begins at the age of 6 and is compulsory for all students. Elementary Schooling ends after six years of initial education while fast learners in the country also have an option of completing the course within five years which can be an advantage to students.

3.     Secondary education comes next which comprises of the Middle school and the High school. Middle school begins at the age of 12 and carries on for the coming three years. It is however not compulsory for students to attend high school unless they want to enter a University.

4.     Tertiary education includes education in University and one must graduate from high school or its equivalent to be eligible to seek admission in a University.


Many hostels and student dormitories are available at the Indonesian universities. It is very obvious that it is more advantageous to stay in an on-campus dormitory/room. Apart from these, students can search for apartments or rooms on rent. Facilities vary from University to University and from apartment to apartment. It is essential that one finds a safe and secure apartment in Indonesia which is preferably close to the campus.


Education in Indonesia is not as expensive as education in most of the western countries. However, the University and government offer scholarships and other forms of financial aids to help the needy and capable students. Cost of living reduces drastically if one stays in an on-campus accommodation.


University of Indonesia, Gadjah Mada University, Bundung Institute of Technology, Pelita Harapan University and Bogor Agriculture University are amongst the top 10 university in Indonesia.
