Q: Do I need an International Driver’s License for driving a scooter in Bali?

A: That shouldn’t be a problem as long as you bring the doctor’s prescription with the medicine. Some medicines can be very hard or impossible to find in Bali even though there are plenty of pharmacies in the more touristy areas of Bali.
Q: How are the hospitals in Bali?
A: There are many international standard hospitals in Bali, for example BIMC, Siloam and Kasih Ibu. Please ask your insurance company for their partner hospital in Bali, as most insurances have one which they prefer. With minor worries you can usually visit the local clinics that can be found everywhere.
Q: Do I need a travel insurance?
A: You are required to have a valid accident and health insurance from your home country for the whole duration of the program. The university may request a copy of the insurance certificate at the beginning of the program. See our recommended travel insurance providers.
Q: What kind of costs should I be prepared for?
A: In addition to tuition fees, you should be prepared to pay for the visa if needed, flights, accommodation and other living costs. There are no book fees in the Warmadewa International Summer Exchange, as most of the study materials will be uploaded to a student folder in Google Drive. The cost of living is relatively low in Bali. The actual costs depend on your individual lifestyle. Find a list of general living costs here. Read more about budgeting.
