Unlocking Balinese and Indonesian Culture

The excursions, organized by UNUD, offer you a unique opportunity to delve into the heart of Balinese and Indonesian culture. These experiences go beyond textbooks, providing valuable insights for student’s daily life in this foreign culture. The glowing feedback and the growing number of students who join the program based on recommendations from friends and fellow students reflect students’ happiness.

Authenticity Through Local Student Engagement

The BIPAS study abroad experience is truly authentic due to the active involvement of UNUD’s local students. They take on a vital role in organizing engaging Indonesian language and culture workshops and coordinating exciting excursions. Additionally, this vibrant engagement fosters a dynamic atmosphere that readily connects BIPAS students with Indonesian university students. As a result, they cultivate meaningful friendships and gain a deeper, more immersive experience of Balinese and Indonesian culture. In essence, UNUD’s local students serve as invaluable cultural ambassadors, enriching the overall journey of international students and making BIPAS an exceptional choice.

Pioneering Engineering Courses for a Sustainable Future

Notably, BIPAS is expanding its horizons by introducing innovative engineering courses with a strong focus on environmental matters. Through close collaboration with Udayana University (UNUD), Asia Exchange has broadened its course offerings to equip international students with the knowledge and skills needed to actively address today’s pressing environmental challenges. These courses offer a unique academic opportunity and empower students to contribute actively to preserving our planet. They explore topics such as sustainable energy and architecture, environmental design, and eco-friendly technologies. This expansion demonstrates our commitment to providing comprehensive and relevant education and ensures that students graduate prepared to positively impact the world’s environmental future.

That’s not all – Working Together Towards a Bright Future
