Students testimonials

”We’ve been here in Bali for 4 days now and I can already say that I love this place from the bottom of my heart. We’re staying at a luxurious villa and the monthly rent is not bad at all when shared with four people. Cleaning services, water, electricity and wireless Internet are all included in the rent."
- Katriina Kerttula,
University of Turku

”I’ve been surprised by the quality of the teaching, even though different lecturers have very different teaching methods. I believe the courses will be beneficial for me in the future. The workshops and excursions have also been very interesting.”
- Henrietta,
Technical university of Lappeenranta

”I first got to know about Asia Exchange from a friend who did an exchange semester in Bali in a different program. His friends were in the BIPAS program and told very positive things about it, which made me interested. The courses not only teach a lot about Indonesia and its culture, but also offer a multicultural perspective into tourism and economics. People have also said that they felt taken care of during the program. The exchange program offers a lot even for people who aren’t currently enrolled at an institution and want to gain valuable experiences between their degree studies.”

University of Hamburg
