Monash U’s Indonesian campus is teaching now

No, not a partner’s – an actual Monash U Jakarta campus, teaching public policy, data science and management masters

The university plans to grow to 2000 students and to expand its product range to PhDs at one top end and short courses and micro-credentials at the other.

This is a big deal indeed, the start of a new international education market. Monash U is the first international university to establish a campus in the country, thanks to the Aus-Indonesian FTA.

CQU is also keen on Indonesia, “not least because there are 270m people there,” says VC Nick Klomp.

The university is in a JV, teaching business masters to local Bakrie U students, who can transfer to CQU in Australia after four semesters (CMM May 28) It also has “sights set” on a “presence” in the Brisbane-size city of Medan in North Sumatra (CMM June 2).
