Q: What’s the dresscode at Warmadewa University?
A: You must cover your shoulders, belly, knees and toes whenever on campus. Please bring enough suitable, lightweight clothes from home.
Q: Do I need a visa for studying at WISE?
A: If you stay in Indonesia a maximum of 30 days, you can enter the country without a visa. If you wish to stay longer, you can purchase a 30-day Visa on Arrival at the airport in Bali and extend it for another 30 days with the help of the university-appointed visa agent.
Q: Do I need an International Driver’s License for driving a scooter in Bali?
A: Yes, you do. If you don’t yet have one, please order it from your national car union’s website. Bear in mind that driving a scooter in Bali requires a motorbike license. Without one, you might have problems with your insurance company in case of an accident.
Q: What is the most convenient way to get to the campus?
A: You can either rent a scooter and drive to the campus or you can book a motorbike/regular taxi through Go-Jek or Grab app. Taxis are very affordable in Bali.
Q: Which vaccinations do I need to take?
A: We recommend MMR, Tetanus-diphteria and hepatitis A and B. You can ask your doctor for possible other recommendations in case you wish to travel to more rural areas. Bali is not a malaria-endemic zone, so most likely you will not need to purchase anti-malaria medication.
Q: Can I bring prescription medicines to 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.
