Universitas Indonesia


Language of instruction


Universitas Indonesia was founded in 1849 and has become a modern, comprehensive, open-minded, and multi-cultural campus that covers wide arrays of disciplines.

UI’s Depok campus is one of the most magnificent green campuses in the world – utilising only 25 per cent of its area for academic, research and student activities, while 75 per cent is reserved for forestation. Depok is located in the bordering area between Jakarta and West Java Province.

Organise your visa

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa for the country where you will be studying. As UQ Abroad is not a visa-issuing authority we cannot provide visa advice.

UI provides visa and immigration information for incoming exchange students.

Contact the Embassy or Consulate of Indonesia for more visa information.

Travel risk levels

The University of Queensland cannot and does not allow UQ Abroad students to travel to any country with a risk level of 3 (Reconsider your need to travel) or above, as assessed by the Australian Government.

If a country's risk level changes to 3 or above, UQ Abroad programs to that country are suspended until the risk level improves.
