new members....

I am including a new one here. I found this blog by accident, when last night I was looking for something about Norway in google search. and after seeing some of the existing post on this website, my first impressions on this website is, Wow! This is a cool website ...!

I live at Depok, a city located around Jakarta. Depok can be regarded as a university town, because there are several universities in it. one of them is the University of Indonesia, which is one of the largest university in Indonesia. and by chance I am alumni of this university, and lived in the area around the university.
so, if you are looking for information about education at the University of Indonesia, I can help you with that. And, there are also programs for foreigners who want to learn Indonesian language, called BIPA 'Bahasa Indonesia Penutur Asing' or Indonesian language for the foreign speakers.

I hope to get acquainted with people from around the world. and perhaps I can accompany you if you want to visit Depok, or Jakarta. showing you, how the lives of Jakarta daily. Jakarta is a metropolitan city, full of twists and turns the life of a metropolitan community. Jakarta has a small area, but it is an government center, business center, and is central to the lifestyle of people in Indonesia.

and as the closing of my introduction, Nice to meet you!

Nice to meet you also and thanks to post these informations...

from some article that I read, there are some requirements that you must do before u became a student at the university in Indonesia. this is related to education regulation for foreign students. such as, you must to have visa tinggal terbatas (Vitas), and Study Permit (Surat Izin studi) from DIKTI (Direktorat Pendidikan Tinggi or the Directorate of Higher Education),  at National Education Ministry.
maybe, for more complete information, you should seek information to:

Direktorat Jenderal Pendidikan Tinggi

as I know, in Jakarta, for learn Indonesian maybe you'll find private lessons classes for it. but maybe you can try for find information to language educational institutions such as LIA at Jalan Pramuka or STBA LIA at Jalan Kalibata.
