Selamat datang! Welcome!

The Regional Universities Indonesian Language Initiative (RUILI) invites you to enrol in an intensive Indonesian In-country Language and Cultural Program that gives you a high quality classroom learning experience with native speaker instructors, cultural immersion, and daily interaction with local people.

The in-country programs are managed by the members of RUILI: Charles Darwin University (CDU), University of New England (UNE), and the University of Tasmania (UTAS), and delivered in collaboration with our local Indonesian partner, the Mataram Lingua Franca Institute (MLFI) in Mataram, Lombok.

The program offers several levels of language study, from total beginners to advanced. You will experience living in the community while studying, which will enrich your understanding of the Indonesian language and way of life. The programs integrate rigorous coursework with interesting cultural activities and excursions, and are taught by supportive local university teachers.

Due to COVID-19 and international travel restrictions, the RUILI In-Country language program in Mataram, Lombok, Indonesia in January-February 2021 will not be proceeding.
