Udayana University is among Indonesia's leading universities in both teaching and research. Udayana is also the largest and most respected university in Bali.
Bali is a well-known surfing paradise and many students spend their leisure time on the world's best waves. With its 3.5 million inhabitants, the island has much to offer for people of all ages. The white sandy beaches attract sun worshipers and there are plenty of local dances and ceremonies for those who are interested in culture. From Bali, good transportation links and affordable prices make it easy to travel around both in Indonesia and elsewhere in Asia.
The university was founded in 1962 by the Ministry of Education and consists of 10 faculties. Many of the teachers have international experience, which makes for a unique study experience. Studying at Udayana will afford you the opportunity to discover Asia and yourself in a deeper, more integrated way than simply taking a trip or going backpacking would. Udayana University is also a great option for students on a budget to embark on a unique study experience and travel to an exotic destination. A semester in Bali is a fantastic option for those who really want to experience Southeast Asia!
The Bali International Program on Asian Studies (BIPAS) introduces students to Economics, Business, Finance, Culture, Language, Law, and Tourism in Asia. Students are also given the opportunity to integrate with the local population, with other exchange students, and with international lecturers. The goal of a BIPAS semester is to develop students' knowledge of Indonesia and Asia from an international perspective. Part of the BIPAS curriculum consists of various workshops and field trips to local businesses and cultural institutions. The program is aimed at students who want to embrace local life on this island paradise and combine studies with leisure activities that provide unforgettable experiences for the future.
Having completed a semester abroad gives great advantage in an increasingly competitive job market. We recommend that you consult study advisors at your home university to find out more about you can transfer credits earned at another institution abroad. BIPAS is offered in English for international students. If you are interested in learning more about this program, contact KILROY.
