Report
16 March 2015

From 1-6 March 2015, a delegation of 13 representatives from 13 UK higher education institutions met with Government ministries, research organisations, funding bodies and leading universities in Indonesia. The aim of the delegation was to better understand the Indonesian higher education sector, identify opportunities for partnerships and gain a better understanding of the impact of political and bureaucratic change in 2014 upon the operation of existing and future funding schemes.

The delegation was organised by the UK Higher Education International Unit (IU) and the British Council in Indonesia, with support from the British Embassy in Jakarta. The delegation was led by Professor Andrew Wathey, Vice-Chancellor of Northumbria University and member of University UK’s International Policy Network Board.

This visit report provides an overview of the mission’s principal objectives, notes of the key meetings, and identified areas for follow-on activity.
