Important Information

Please note that the information above is based on an official release in mid-2021. Always check for updates on the UNPAD English website at https://www.unpad.ac.id or at UNPAD International Office. Be aware as well that not all information is available in English. Do not hesitate to contact the UNPAD admin or us in Studinesia through the Contact Form to get help for free.

We recommend you ask the administrator of each program about all the details since not all important information is available online in English. Do call or text or email the admin about your questions or inquiries. The preferred tool is using WhatsApp, social media account, and email. Be prepared to have an admin who is not fluent in English, so speak slowly and clearly. Combine the communication with written format to avoid misunderstanding as far as you can.

Bear in mind that all Indonesian higher education institutions are able to accept international students in programs outside the ones labeled as "international programs." That means that those regular programs are held in Indonesian language, and all international students should have sufficient language capability to enter the program.
