Courses in Business, Communication/Film, Computer Science/Information Systems, Hospitality/Tourism, Fashion Design/Management, and Graphic Design are taught entirely in English.
Jakarta is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Indonesia and the twelfth-largest city in the world. The metropolitan area, Jabodetabek, is now the second largest in the world and home to over 10 million people, as well as skyscrapers, single story residential houses, modern apartment complexes and survivalists’ shanties—all coexist in this city. As the country’s economic, cultural and political center, Jakarta is always bustling. The city is also the seat of the ASEAN Secretariat.

Jakarta has its own special Betawi culture, although the city has been influenced by various other cultures that have reached its shores over the centuries. The region hosts a range of breathtaking natural and man-made wonders and Jakarta is a gastronomic paradise for gourmets, with international and local cuisines galore. Shopping in Jakarta is colorful and varied, as options range from street markets and independent enterprises to high-end shopping towns catering to those interested in luxury goods. The variety is astounding.

Student Activities
BINUS has various student department associations and activity clubs which welcome international students. There are more than 30 student activity clubs in various fields (language, interests, hobbies, sport, media and spirituality). BINUS also offers a Buddy program for incoming international students. Local students are selected to be an iBuddy (international buddy) to support international students and help them adapt to both the academic and non academic environments. There are several special events including the Regional Youth Leadership Conference (RYLC), the International Photo Competition (IPC), and the BINUS International Debating Championship (BIND). Excursions/day trips in relation with cultural activities or industry visits are also offered for an additional fee (e.g. transportation, entrance ticket, accommodation – if it includes an overnight stay).
Community Engagement (Internships, Service-Learning, Volunteering, etc.)
There are limited internship opportunities for international students. Depending on schedule and availability, internships with local industry partners may provide an allowance but students will not receive a salary. Usually these are not credit-bearing, except for Hospitality students who are placed in course-related internships. Students can participate as volunteers in the “Teach for Indonesia (TFI)” program. Volunteers will participate in various education-related activities, such as computer and language training for school teachers, education for children at an orphanage, or psychology therapy for victims of disaster. Also, from time to time, the university’s links with NGOs give students the opportunity to serve in their community service activities, such as translators for neighborhood medical projects.
As a leading university in Indonesia with over 30 years of educational experience and impact, and a student body of over 23,000, BINUS University is proud to be at the forefront of the rapidly transforming higher education landscape of the fourth most populous country in the world.
