Have you heard about the in-country Indonesian study option? Many past participants have described it as the best learning experience they have ever had! In-country language study offers excellent opportunities in combining formal language study with experiential learning through interaction with native speakers in authentic environments. Representing two credit points of language study, this program may replace either AIF341 or AIF342 in the Indonesian major or Diploma. In 2017, the in-country program will be held in Malang, at Universitas Islam Negeri Malauna Malik Ibrahim Malang. This is one of our long standing partner universities in Indonesia. Malang is in a cooler highland area in East Java. It is a city small enough to quickly become familiar with but large enough for good infrastructure. Malang has many universities with a diverse student population from all over Indonesia.
Academic & Cultural Program
The academic program primarily involves three hours of language classes in the mornings, and will be complemented by local cultural activities on some afternoons and weekend excursions. Excursion destinations may include Taman Safari, mountain plantations, the former home and tomb of President Sukarno (Indonesia’s first president), and an overnight excursion to the incredible Mount Bromo volcano.
