University signs deal with Indonesia in bid to diversify

Monash University in Melbourne has signed a formal agreement with Indonesia’s ministry of research and technology to “forge solid and institutionalised partnerships”, writes Naaman Zhou for The Guardian.

The agreement will strengthen higher education ties between the two countries as Australian universities try to diversify from their reliance on China.

The Jakarta campus will be purely postgraduate and offer masters and PhD degrees, with the first students scheduled to begin in October this year.
