The Department for International Trade Jakarta is at an early stage of partnership with a private company who manage a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) to explore Transnational Education (TNE) in Indonesia.

The SEZ is located in East Java where there is potential for international education with a focus on digital technology.

The private company wants to partner with UK universities who want to expand their partnerships in Indonesia.

The partnership model will be determined upon consultation with potential partners.

You should:

- allocate sufficient time and resources to navigate the preparation and approval process in Indonesia
- have solid knowledge and experiences in Southeast Asia. Prior knowledge and experiences in Indonesian market would be useful, and preferably have experiences of establishing significant TNE portfolio in other countries
- be able to provide a concrete plan for TNE partnership and programme development

In the medium-term, the Indonesian private company will:

- be open to discussion on the partnership model and other technical details
- work together with the UK university to secure an approval from the Ministry of Education and Culture

The Ministry of Education and Culture, through its independent campus initiative, is looking to encourage more Indonesian universities to partner with foreign universities.

It has also introduced regulations which provide clearer guidance in setting up a partnership with foreign universities. These initiatives and regulations will open up more opportunities for UK universities.
