Indonesia to welcome Australian students
The New Colombo Plan is a signature initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo Pacific in Australia and strengthen people-to-people and institutional relationships through study and internships undertaken by Australian undergraduate students in the region.
Indonesia is participating in the pilot phase of the program, and the first Australian students from universities around the country will begin arriving in Indonesia in the coming months.
The Australia-Indonesia Institute welcomes this exciting new initiative to build closer links with Indonesia and the Indo Pacific region.
