Monash will progressively roll out an array of Masters and PhD programs in Indonesia, as well as tailored executive education courses and micro-credentials. These will be in areas such as, data science and digital technology, infrastructure and urban planning, creative industry and entrepreneurship and health systems and public health. Monash will not be offering undergraduate degrees in Indonesia, but will be facilitating flows of undergraduate students to other Monash campuses.
Monash University will operate in Indonesia as a wholly owned entity and will be building a network of strong collaborative research and education partnerships with leading public, private and Islamic universities in Indonesia.
Monash University has a long history of engagement with Indonesia, dating back to the 1960s. There are over 1500 Indonesian nationals studying at Monash University and a growing and engaged alumni base, of over 10,000 Indonesian graduates.
Monash has graduated more Indonesian citizens than any other university outside Indonesia and is internationally known for its research in Indonesia, such as the Revitalising Informal Settlements and their Environments (RISE) project and the World Mosquito Program. The campus in Indonesia will enable Monash to significantly add to these existing points of engagement.
The University has been continuing to strengthen its ties in Indonesia with the establishment of the Monash Indonesia Representative Office (MIRO). MIRO is responsible for supporting alumni, government and industry engagement, and education and research partnerships. Monash is also the host of the Australia-Indonesia Centre - a collaborative framework bringing together selected Indonesian and Australian universities.
The campus in Indonesia will build on these relationships and provide direct access for students in Indonesia to a local campus of a university ranked in the top 100 in the world.
It will also make a strong and distinctive contribution to the social, cultural and economic development of Indonesia through its research and education. Through the close connections it will establish with industry, government and the community, the Indonesia campus aspires to set a new global benchmark for how a branch campus operates and what it can contribute.
Monash has a campus in Malaysia with more than 8,000 students. Monash University is held in high regard in Malaysia – as the first foreign university invited to set up in Malaysia. This year we are celebrating 21 years of operations there. Monash has also established very successful partnered operations in Suzhou, China, and Mumbai, India.
