Indonesia is the world’s largest island country. With around 2,000 higher education institutions, including 120 state universities, Indonesia provides local and international students with plenty of choice, and access to a quality education in often beautiful surroundings.
An increasing number of universities and colleges in Indonesia recognise Cambridge International AS & A Levels. School feedback shows that Cambridge students have applied successfully to local universities, taking a variety of pathways depending on:
Entrance to university programmes in the international stream is usually straightforward, although this stream only exists in a small number of universities and tuition fees are much higher than for the domestic stream.
In order to gain a place at a local university, students are usually required to have their Cambridge certificates certified as equivalent to the local standard by the Secondary Education Department of the Ministry of Education and Culture (MOEC). This option is currently only open to students who have attended a licensed international school. The alternative is to take the local equivalence examination known as ‘Paket C’.
Please always check directly with your target institution and/or study destination for up-to-date admissions requirements and policies for local and international students.
