Reading Time: 1 minute

scottishA group of Scottish universities has embarked on a mission to seek out profitable tie-ups with Indonesia’s burgeoning higher education sector, Scottish paper The Herald reported on September 15.

Organised by Scottish ­Development International (SDI), in partnership with Universities Scotland and the British Council Scotland, a five-day visit will be SDI’s first venture into the predominantly Muslim ­southeast Asian country, which is home to 250 million people and is seen as an emerging economic giant, with a proliferating middle class.

The Scottish delegation will include representatives of 12 universities and will be hosted by the ­Indonesian Ministry of Education. It aims to enlarge the reach of Scottish universities in Southeast Asia beyond 12 Scottish ­universities with successful partnerships in Malaysia and Singapore.

The university chiefs are set to take part in an intensive programme of meetings across four cities, interacting with 55 potential Indonesian partners in meetings designed “to give participants an in-depth introduction to the market”.The mission will coincide with a programme of other UK activities in Indonesia next week, including the British Council’s science and innovation event in Jakarta, and the launch of the Great Campaign for Education as well as a reception for Indonesian alumni of Scottish universities.
