First Year Indonesian Enrolment and Placement Interviews

The Indonesian Studies Program conducts placement interviews for all students who have had previous experience studying Indonesian or Malay, including students whose first language is Indonesian or Malay. Based on these interviews you will be placed in the appropriate level for your language and learning background.

If you have no previous experience studying Indonesian or Malay you can enrol directly in Indonesian 1 (ATS1111) and do not require a placement interview.

Students with previous experience in Indonesian or Malay may enrol in an Indonesian language unit but these enrolments will be considered provisional until students have completed the placement interview.
