Education System in Indonesia

Written by Miqlo IT on . Posted in Uncategorised

The Educational Units

The educational unit conducts learning-teaching activities which are carried out in-school or out-of-school. The school education unit is a part of a staggered and sustainable, balanced education system, whereas out-of-school education units cover family, learning group, special courses, and other similar types of education. The distance learning education unit is education that takes place in an institution where implementation of teaching-learning activities does not have to occupy a certain building. The variety of education units enable every citizen to attend life-long education if they so desire.

2. The Educational Channels

The national education will be carried out through two channels, that is, in-school education and out-of-school education. The in-school education channel covers education carried out in school through learning-teaching activities that occur in the traditional manner in a staggered and sustainable ways. The out-of-school education channel covers education carried out in any non-traditional environment that does not require participants to attend lessons in a formally constructed, purpose-built environment. The out-of-school learning and teaching activities do not necessarily need to be staggered, sustained or balanced. Family education is a part of the out-of-school education channel conducted within the family which provides religious faith, social and moral values, and specific life skills.

3. The Educational Types

Educational types included in the in-school education channel consist of general, vocational, handicapped, official, religious, academic and professional education. General education focuses on expansion of knowledge and skill improvement of participants in line with the specialization that will be realized in the final stages of participation in the education system. Vocational education is education to prepare participants with relevant skills to work directly in certain fields. Handicapped education is education which is carried out especially for participants with physical and/or mental disorders. Government officials education is education for improving ability in the implementation of official duties for employees or those who aspire to work in a government ministry department or non-departmental/government institutions. Religious education is education to prepare participants to be able to assume a role in society that demands the mastery of special knowledge in regard to the respective religion. Academic education is aimed at fostering the mastery of knowledge and science among students, and professional education is aimed at producing professionals who can apply their specialties and knowledge to the development of the country, and society.

Types of education included in out-of-school education channel consist of: general, religious, occupational, officials, and vocational education. Out-of-schoolgeneraleducation prioritizes expansion of knowledge, skill improvement and development of good attitude of the learners in learning certain fields. Religiouseducation prepares students to play a role that requires the special mastery of the respective religions. Occupational education is education that attempts to increase knowledge, ability, and attitude of the learners to fulfil certain working requirements in their related working unit. Officials education is designed to improve abilities to carry out official duties, for employees or candidates to work in a government ministry or non-departmental government institutions. Vocationalout-of-schooleducation is education to prepare students to be able to work in certain fields.

4. The Educational Levels

Educational level refers to a stage in continuing education which is determined based on the level of development of the learning participant as well as the flexibility and the depth of learning materials.

a. Basic Education

Basic education is general education with a duration of 9 years, including 6 years in Primary School and three years in Lower Secondary School or equivalent educational level. Basic education aims to provide assets in the form of abilities to learning participants so they may develop their lives and lifestyles as individual members of society, citizens and human beings, as well as to prepare them to attend secondary education.

The basic education unit that implements the six year educational program consists of two major divisions, i.e. general primary school and primary school for the handicapped. The basic education unit that implements the three year educational program after the six year program is either general lower secondary school or lower secondary school for the handicapped. Apart from these schools, there are also primary education units which are based on Moslem religion and organized by the Ministry of Religious Affairs. These schools are known as Madrasah lbtidaiyah which is the equivalent of primary school and Madrasah Tsanawiyah, equivalent of lower secondary school.

As a general education institution, primary education is obliged to contain at least the following subjects in the curriculum: Pancasila education, religious education, citizenship, Indonesian language, reading and writing, mathematics (including arithmetic), introduction to science and technology, geography, national and general history, art and craft, physical and health education, drawing, and English language. The mentioned courses are not the formal title of the subjects, but rather the field of study, the basic material presented to form personality and ability instilled and developed through basic education. More than one field of study may be united to become one subject, or conversely, one field of study may be dispersed across more than one subject matter.

The primary education curriculum contains 10 subjects, as follows: (1) Pancasila and citizenship education; (2) religious education; (3) Indonesian language (including reading and writing); (4) mathematics (including arithmetic); (5) natural science (science and technology introduction); (6) social sciences (including geography, national and general history); (7) art (including drawing); (8) physical and health education; (9) English language and; (10) local content (a number of assorted subjects).

b. Secondary Education

Secondary education is education that is organized for graduates of basic education. Types of secondary education cover the broad fields of general, vocational, religious, officials, and special education. Generalsecondaryeducation focuses on knowledge expansion and skills improvement of students, and preparing students for further education. Vocational secondaryeducation focuses on the development of skills that apply to a certain specific occupation, and preparing students for employment as well as developing professional attitude. Religioussecondaryeducation focuses on the mastery of the teaching of the respective religions. Officialssecondaryeducation focuses on ability improvement to support the implementation of official duties for government officials or potential government officials. Finally, specialsecondaryeducation is carried out for students with physical and/or mental disorders

General secondary education is undertaken in general secondary schools and Madrasah Aliyah (Islamic secondary schools). The objectives of general secondary education are to: (1) increase the knowledge of students so that they may progress to higher education levels and to develop themselves in line with advances of knowledge, technology and art, and (2) increase the ability of students to become contributing members of society, through developing useful mutual relationships with their social, cultural and natural surroundings. To achieve such objectives, the teaching program is organized into two stages, consisting of: the general teaching program which is applied in class I and II, and special teaching programs (more specific in nature) which begin to be implemented in class III in accordance with the ability and interests of the individual students.

Vocational secondary education is carried out in vocational secondary schools, which are schools that run educational programs adjusted to employment needs for certain occupations. The secondary vocational education program consists of six groups, namely: (1) the Agricultural and Forestry Group, (2) the Technological and Industrial Group, (3) the Business and Management Group, (4) the Social Welfare Group, (5) the Tourism Group, and (6) the Art and Crafts Group.

The educational activity implementation in vocational education units is based on the valid national curriculum, a curriculum that is adjusted to environmental needs and conditions, and the specific characteristics of the related educational units. The secondary vocational curriculum is organized into general and vocational programs. The general program consists of a number of subjects which are considered the normal minimum requirements for students of this level, and are compulsory for all students in the framework of forming the character of the wholesome Indonesians. This program consists of the following subject matters: Pancasila and Citizenship Education; Religious Education; Indonesian Language and Literature; Physical and Health Education; and National and General History. The vocational program consists of basic vocational subjects and vocational skill development topics. The function ofbasicvocationaleducation is to instill the ability to develop and adapt in line with the development of science, technology and arts in relation to the respective study program. The function ofvocationalskillsdevelopment is to form productive ability which can be practically applied to employment in the respective occupations.

c. Higher education

Higher education is the continuation of secondary education through the in-school education channel. This channel consists of two divisions, academic and professional education. Academic education is directed particularly toward mastery of technological science and/or arts in the academic sense, whereas professional education is directed more toward the preparation of certain applied skills useful in the workforce,

The higher education implementation unit is the higher education institution. Such educational units can be in the form of academies, polytechnics, tertiary school institutes, or universities. Academies are higher education institutions that carry out professional education in one or a part of certain branch of knowledge, technology or arts. Polytechnics are higher education institutions which undertake professional education in a number of special fields. Tertiaryschools are higher education institutions which carry out academic and/or professional education in only one specific discipline. Institutes are higher education institutions that consist of a number of departments which undertake academic and/or professional education in one group of similar scientific disciplines. Universities are higher education institutions that consist of a number of departments which undertake academic and/or professional education in many scientific technological, or arts disciplines.

The educational units referred to as academies and polytechnics run diploma programs as a part of professional education. Higher education units in the form of tertiary schools, institutes and universities run academic and/or professional education courses in the form of graduate and post-graduate programs. Post-graduate programs are in the form of Magister’s and Doctor’s degrees. Professional education is in the form of a diploma program that offers 4 levels of study from diploma I through to diploma 4. Diploma programs can be continued to a higher level known as Specialist 1 or 2 level, if students meet the entry requirements.

d. Special Education

Special education is formed to meet the educational needs of those who suffer from physical and/or mental disorders. Special education is aimed at instilling skills that help the people who suffer physical, mental, behavioral or social problems, to more readily adapt to society. This is done through the development of skills, attitudes, and knowledge that enable students to develop work skills, skills to help them interact with their social, cultural, and natural environments, and/or pursue further education.

The different types of disorders that are catered for in special education include (1) partial or complete sight impairment (blindness), (2) partial or complete deafness, (3) physical disabilities such as crippled limbs or disfigured limbs which result in impaired mobility or senses, (4) mental or behavioral disabilities such as retardation, which cause assimilation difficulties in normal schools, the family environment or society. Students may be handicapped in both physical and mental disabilities.

The form of special educational units as regulated by Law No. 2 of 1989 are special kindergarten schools, with a duration of 3 years; special primary schools with a duration of at least 6 years; special lower secondary schools with a duration of at least 3 years; and special upper secondary schools, also with a duration of at least 3 years.

e. Pre-School Education

The objective of pre-school education is to stimulate the physical and intellectual growth and development of children outside the family environment before entering primary school or out-of-school educational programs. The focus of education is on the development of attitude, knowledge, skills and creative abilities, so that children may adapt to their environment quicker and easier, and for their further growth and development. However, attendance at pre-school education is not a prerequisite or requirement for entry into primary school.

The forms of pre-school education include Kindergartens, Play Groups and Child Care Centers. Kindergartens are classed as in-school education facilities while play groups and child care centers are included under the banner of out-of-school education. Apart from these units, there are also special Islamic pre-schools which are of the same status as kindergartens. These schools are called BustanulAtfal and RaudlatuiAtfal, and are organized by the Ministry of Religious Affairs.

Kindergartens are run for children aged 4 to 6 years with a one or two year education duration. Children’s welfare in play groups and child care centers is the responsibility of the Minister of Social Affairs, while the educational aspects are organized by the Minister of Education and Culture (Government Regulation No. 27 of 1990, Article 5).

Pre-school educational units in the form of play groups and child care centers may be attended by children under the-age of 3 years. The content of the pre-school educational program for kindergartens as run through the in-school channel must include Pancasila morals education, religion, discipline, language ability, thinking exercises, creativity, social skills, feelings and emotions, manual skills and physical fitness and health.

f. Out-of-School Education

Out-of-school education are educational activities carried out outside of the formal school system. Out-of-school education is not necessarily organized into levels or stages and continuous. The characteristic that differentiates out-of-school education from school education is its flexibility which includes flexible course duration and study times, no participant age limits, and flexible course content, implementation and assessment procedures.

The out-of-school education unit covers family education learning group, special courses like computer, and other similar educational units. Family education is designed to promote religious awareness, cultural values, moral values and special home and social skills.

The major objectives of out-of-school education are to: (1) serve the needs of the learners so that they may grow and develop as rapidly as possible, and develop self worth and improve the quality of their lifestyle throughout life; (2) organize learning activities to help learners to gain skills, attitudes and knowledge needed for their development, for work as a livelihood, or continue on to higher levels of education; and (3) meet the societal demand for education that cannot be fulfilled by the formal education channel alone.

The forms of out-of-school education include courses, learning groups and others such as play groups, and child care centers and similar educational units. The courses are run for education participants as assets to develop themselves, to find a livelihood and/or continue on to higher levels of education. The learning groups that are organized by the Government consist of the Learning Group Packet A, and the Learning Group Packet B. The Learning Group Packet A provides material for the learners to achieve primary school qualifications, and the Learning Group Packet B provides material for lower secondary qualifications. Other out-of-school units such as child care centers and play groups are organized by the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Education and Culture in a cooperative arrangement.

B. Applying Visa

You will need a visa to enter Indonesia – in which you can obtain at the nearest Embassy or Consular Office of Indonesia in your country. Here are types of visas you could apply:

1. Index B-211 Visa or VKSB B-211

Another category of visit visa is VKSB (Visa Kunjungan Sosial Budaya – Social/Cultural Visit Visa) – a visa for those coming to Indonesia for a short-term stays, not as tourists and not for business. This single entry visit visa refers to Index B-211 and is valid for 30 – 60 days.

Requirements to obtain the Index B-211 Visa are as follows:

  • A letter of acceptance which invites you to stay/study in Indonesia;
  • Your passport;
  • A copy of return trip ticket;
  • Two (2) pieces of passport-size photos (4 X 6);
  • Application form (provided by the Visa Section of the Indonesian Embassy);
  • Visa fee

We would never recommend you to use the Visa on Arrival (VOA) which is only intended for those who are visiting Indonesia as tourists, NOT for those intending to live for an extended period of time because this kind of visa is not extendable.

  1. VITAS (Limited Stay Visa)

Three kinds of VITAS valid for:

  • 6 months
  • 12 months
  • 24 months

The process of applying the VITAS takes 2 – 3 months before your arrival in Indonesia. The reason is that Study Permit(Izin Studi) must be applied to DIKTI (the Directorate General of Higher Education of Indonesia – Jakarta) before you apply for Vitas.

The following are detailed documents you should prepare for Study Permit (SP) and VITAS:

  1. A letter of Recommendation from the University in Indonesia.
  2. A letter of Approval from the Indonesian Embassy (If you are still in your home country), from the representative Embassy/Consular Office of your country (If you are already in Indonesia).
  3. An Academic Report/Transcript
  4. A Curriculum Vitae/Resume
  5. A letter of Declaration stating that you will obey Indonesian rules and laws will not involve in any work activities
  6. A letter of Sponsorship or of Financial guarantee (if you self finance)
  7. Health Declaration/Report (signed by a medical doctor)
  1. A copy of valid Passport:

· 12-month passport validity remaining to apply for a 6-month SP and KITAS (Limited Stay Permit Visa)

· 18-month passport validity remaining to apply for a 12-month SP and KITAS

· 30-month passport validity remaining to apply for a 24-month SP and KITAS

(So, if your passport nearing expiration, we recommend that you have it renew to the maximum time allowable before you begin applying procedures.)

  1. Three (3) pieces of passport-size photos (4 X 6) – red background

Since Study Permit and VITAS are applied before your arrival, the International Relation Office of the University will then precede the application to the Immigration Office in Jakarta. When approved, the Immigration Office will send a facsimile of a letter of approval to the Indonesian Embassy or Consular Office in related countries, in which you can get the VITAS aforementioned. Therefore; send the above documents (1 – 9) to respective University in Indonesia.

C. Applying Scholarship

2. KNB Scholarship

The Tenth Conference of Heads of States of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries held on 1-6 September 1992 concluded among others the idea of providing scholarships by the Ministry of Education and Culture, which is now the Ministry of National Education (MONE).

In 1993 the Government of the Republic of Indonesia started offering postgraduate (master degree) scholarships to students from the NAM member countries.

However, since 2002, after the cold war ended, the scholarship has been offered to citizens of developing countries such as Thailand, Fiji, South Korea, Suriname, Guyana, Turkey, Vietnam, and Vanuatu. This scholarship has attracted more applicants. Over the years up to 2008, 381 students from 42 countries have completed the NAM scholarship program.
