Republic of Indonesia: A Study of the Educational System of the Republic of Indonesia and a Guide to the Academic Placement of Students from the Republic of Indonesia in Educational Institutions of the United States.
Aanenson, Charles R.
The educational system of the Republic of Indonesia is described, and placement recommendations concerning students who want to study in the United States are presented. After a description of elementary and secondary education, higher education is considered, with attention to governance, types of private institutions, degrees, diplomas, credits, examinations, and grading. The history of the government (ministerial) academies is traced, and information is provided on admissions to the academies, health supervision and accounting curricula, and diplomas. Admissions, curricula, staff and students, and diplomas for teacher training institutions and for universities and institutes and graduate-level degrees and diplomas are also covered. Special considerations for U.S. admissions officers are addressed concerning: diplomas, transcripts, and indications of the quality of Indonesian schools, students, and credentials. The placement recommendations are based upon the degree earned or number of years of education rather than upon quality. Appendices include: an alphabetical listing of tertiary institutions (public and private academies, institutes, advanced schools, and universities) with information for each institution on public/private control status, date founded, enrollment, and degree offered, and a list of public universities and institutes under the Ministry of Education and Culture. A glossary and bibliography are included. (SW)
