Spotlight: Indonesia


Based upon data from usage of the UK NARIC service, we present a new set of articles, designed to provide a brief perspective of emerging recruitment markets for education providers.

As the world’s fourth most populous nation consisting of approximately 17,500 islands, Indonesia is one of the countries showing a marked increase in the number of views within the International Comparisons database.

During 2011, Indonesia received 6692 views; an increase of 869, 15% higher than the previous year. These figures continue a trend on the 2010 figures, which witnessed a 17% growth from 2009.

International Comparisons usage data contributes towards UK NARIC’s market information on non-traditional countries of interest. There are a number of possible reasons behind the growth of interest in Indonesia, including:

Some Key Market Facts:

Key Educational Development:

In terms of educational developments, implementation of the Indonesian National Qualifications Framework, locally known as the KKNI (Kerangka Kualifikasi Nasional Indonesia) is underway. Introduced in 2011, the framework benchmarks qualifications to nine levels: Bachelors, Master’s and Doctorates placed at levels six, eight and nine respectively. The primary aim of the development is to increase transparency, facilitate mobility and enhance understanding of the Indonesian education system in years to come.
