Deakin University Scholarship for Indonesian language Major


Indonesian language studies develop communication skills in Bahasa Indonesia, as well as an understanding of Indonesian culture, history and society. With more than 220 million speakers of Bahasa Indonesia, and Indonesia being Australia’s closest Asian neighbour, the region is increasingly important to Australia economically, politically and culturally. In-country language programs are available to students undertaking a major sequence in Indonesian, giving you the opportunity to travel overseas and try out your language skills with native speakers.

In-country study

The In-Country Language Program is available to students completing a major sequence in Indonesian via study abroad. The program is a unique part of language study and an excellent way of accelerating completion of the major. Second and third year students have the opportunity to spend between six and eight weeks studying language and culture in its own environment. This enables students to converse, read and write about more complex topics and to discuss ideas and information. Students also build upon their knowledge of grammar based on what they have learned previously. The program contributes two credit points (2cp) towards the Indonesian language major. Upon successful completion of this program students will be awarded a preclusion for either AIF341 or AIF342. For more information about the In-Country Language program please refer to the Work Integrated Learning website or contact the WIL team:
