To assess transnational education (TNE) opportunities for UK universities in Indonesia, the British Council conducted studies comprising extensive desk-research and face-to-face interviews with key stakeholders in Indonesia. The result was a report on Indonesia TNE landscape published in October 2019. 

The 2019 report is intended to assist UK universities to better understand the regulatory environment in Indonesia and to provide an overview of the main trends, challenges and opportunities that exist in this increasingly important higher education (HE) market. 

With over 4000 higher education institutions dotted across the country, it is always a challenge to navigate Indonesia HE landscapes. We would like to address this challenge by publishing profile of 50 leading Indonesian universities. We compile the list from two broad categories, namely:

  • Public universities: 23 institutions including 12 public autonomous universities  
  • Private universities: 27 institutions including faith-based universities and universities that are founded by or have close links with prominent Indonesian companies or a business group 

The profile is structured into three different sections:

  • Facts and figures which include student body (domestic and international), number of academic staff and their educational background, accreditation (national and international) and office for international affairs. 
  • Key information related to TNE which includes existing TNE partnership/s, name of overseas partner/s, programmes/fields of study, delivery models (3+1, 1+1 etc) and classes taught in English. 
  • Research capability and centre 

This profile of 50 Indonesian universities is intended to support UK universities with a tool to get to know selected Indonesian universities that have capabilities to develop academic and research partnerships with international partners.
