Indonesian

Year and Campus: 2014
Overview:

The undergraduate program in Indonesian comprises coursework designed to build students' knowledge and skills in understanding and analysing Indonesian language and society.

Indonesian language subjects are organised in a progressive sequence (of units) from Indonesian 1 through to Indonesian 6, with 4 additional advanced units. Entry points are determined by the student’s background in the language, placement testing, prerequisites, or at the discretion of the Indonesian program. Students normally progress through the subjects in consecutive order. Mid-year entry is also possible, subject to appropriate prior experience and approval from the convenor of the Indonesian program.

Structure & Available Subjects:

Students study Indonesian as a Major (100 points) or Minor (75 points) through a progression of six language subjects. The Major also includes an additional two electives.

Common entry points for the Major and Minor are as follows:

  • Indonesian 1: Students who have never studied Indonesian before or have only rudimentary knowledge of the language usually enter the progression at Indonesian 1.
  • Indonesian 3: Students who have completed VCE Indonesian (Second Language), Standard IB Indonesian or have an equivalent language level usually enter the progression at Indonesian 3.
  • Indonesian 5: Students who perform at an advanced level in Indonesian, for example those who have completed VCE Indonesian (First Language) or have lived or studied in Indonesia, usually enter at Indonesian 5.
  • Advanced Indonesian: Students with a very advanced level of language study, including for example those who attended several years of Indonesian or Malay medium school or have worked several years in an Indonesian or Malay speaking environment would normally enter the Advanced Indonesian entry point. The Advanced Indonesian entry point is only available as a minor.

Students will have their appropriate entry point determined by the Indonesian Program, based on evidence of prior learning and/or results of a placement test as required.
