- Value for money
Worried that studying in an exotic destination will be expensive? Although it’s easy to fork over $4000/month here in tourist central of Indonesia, it’s equally as easy to make your budget stretch. Bali is a huge island, and prices vary according to where you plan to go, and what you plan to do.
In terms of housing, it all depends on your budget, Airbnb, Agoda, and Booking will always have good deals, but since you’re planning to stay long term, have a look at websites such Balibudgethousing, and of course our picks for nearby housing can be found here on our website.
If you study in Bali, it means you’ll be living on the beautiful islands of Indonesia. If you’re eager to explore Bali and its surrounding islands, then try planning ahead, visit websites that offer information on living costs, and you’ll definitely be able to make a little go a long way.
2. Culture and tradition can be found anywhere
The Balinese take culture and tradition very seriously. Ceremonies, rituals, and celebrations aren’t hard to find here in the Island of the Gods. In fact, virtually anything and everything can and must be celebrated. And by anything and everything, we mean anything and everything. Have you ever heard of the Kissing Festival and the Monsters Parade?
3. Diverse international student body
Local Balinese, local Indonesian, children of expats, and international students coming from all different races, religions, and backgrounds, come together to create this incredible smorgasbord of a student body. If you’re having a hard time convincing Bali to your family, throw this one at them! Research done by The American Association of University Professors (and countless of other studies done) have proven that diversity had more positive effects than negative, and can help with a student’s ability to think outside the box, tolerate, and empathise. When you study in Bali with us, you’ll definitely be immersed in diversity.
4. Exotic Islands just a boat trip away
Study and vacation at the same time? While most of your weekdays will be spent on campus (with some casual beach sunsets, of course), beautiful islands such as Gili, Lombok, Sumba, Kupang, and yes, the Komodo Islands aren’t too far away. These islands can be easily reached on weekends, public holidays, or breaks after exam. Have fun exploring while you study in Bali!
5. There’s something for everyone
Whether you want to spend your free time partying, or finally making that ‘clean and vegan’ goal a reality, Bali can and will cater to your needs. It’s an island that provides for locals and foreigners alike, where no demand is too demanding. Have a history lesson while visiting one of the 16th century temples, make your own traditional Jamu in one of our workshops, read a book while you sip on a freshly cracked coconut on the beach, or dance the night away in your favourite nightclub. You’ll never be bored while you study in Bali.
