The Indonesian language program aims to facilitate students' progress towards a high level of communications skills in a cross-cultural setting. The discipline involves the integration of language skills in standard and colloquial Indonesian with a knowledge of the broader social and cultural contexts of Indonesia. Students should refer to the individual unit entries in this Handbook to view campus offering details. As a result, some students may need to complete later year units at another campus.
All Indonesian language students are encouraged to enrol in Indonesian studies units to complement their language study.
The Indonesian program coordinator retains the right to determine the proper proficiency level for any particular student. Students are not permitted to accelerate their enrolment without first consulting the program coordinator.
In collaboration with the Indonesian Studies program and Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, the Indonesian program at Monash is able to offer students the facility of completing one level of study in-country in intensive mode (normally six weeks). This is available at each level except first-year level, and teaching normally occurs over the summer period. Based on results obtained, students gain credit toward their Monash degree, and can fast-track their studies while gaining valuable experience of Indonesian life.
Students must obtain written approval from the Indonesian studies program before enrolling. For further details please contact the in-country coordinator Yacinta Kurniasih or visit the Indonesian Studies in-country program web page at http://www.arts.monash.edu.au/indonesian/incountry/index.php.
Note: the Indonesian in-country program is only available on a fee-paying basis. The appropriate fee is paid to Gadjah Mada University, and both tuition and accommodation are covered, however, students may be eligible to apply for Monash Abroad Study grants.
Students intending to teach language will need to complete an advanced major with an equivalent of three years post-VCE study.
