Victorian universities continue to build upon long-standing educational ties with Indonesia with the recent Indonesian Ministry of Education approval of an international branch campus between Deakin University (Australia) and Lancaster University (United Kingdom) in Bandung, West Java.

The first UK-Australia overseas joint campus, Deakin University Lancaster University Indonesia, provides students with the unique opportunity to pursue dual undergraduate qualifications from two world-class institutions. The first intake is proposed for September 2024, with five initial undergraduate programs in Business and Information Technology.

This partnership synthesises both universities’ world-class expertise in teaching, learning and research, and extensive experience in international education, to further Indonesia’s reputation as an appealing international education destination, supporting students from Indonesia and around the world to realise their study ambitions, and the Indonesian Government’s educational and research aspirations.

The two universities, along with global education provider Navitas, who will spearhead the operational delivery of the campus, are committed to investing in a campus that will deliver exceptional student experience and outcomes.

The opening of the campus in Bandung, West Java reiterates the close ties that the Victorian Government has with both the West Java Province and Bandung City, through the active support and engagement of the Victorian Government Trade and Investment office. It is also another significant milestone in Victoria’s education footprint in Indonesia, following the Monash University Indonesia campus which opened in 2022.
