Low living costs and exotic nature
Indonesia is a Southeast Asian country made up of thousands of volcanic islands. It has the third largest education system in Asia, and the fourth largest in the world. Indonesia takes its’ education really seriously and always pays attention to improving and upgrading its education system.
There are 2 branches in Indonesian higher education: private and public schools. In general, higher education has 4 types of institutions: universities, institutes, academies and polytechnics. The most popular fields in Indonesian universities are medicine, pharmacy, literature, humanities, Islamic studies and engineering.
While public schools require only low tuition fees, private schools’ fees might be rather expensive. The tuition and living costs vary depending on each university and its location. For example, tuition in private universities is somewhere around US$4,500. Transportation costs plus food, entertainment, a gym membership and so on would cost you approximately $400-$700 monthly.
Indonesia is home to hundreds of ethnic groups speaking hundreds of different languages. Every ethnic group has their own cultural background, hence, students can enjoy cultural diversity ranging from languages, food, traditions and costumes – and experience something unique they would never have found in their own countries.
What makes Indonesia even more special is its’ exotic nature. When you study in Indonesia, you will see gorgeous beaches, volcanoes and be able to explore pristine jungles. There are plenty of fauna and flora worth exploring and enjoying here.
