If you are looking to dive into a tropical experience while learning about the rich and diverse Balinese and Hindu culture, the BIPAS program at Udayana is the university for you. 

Bali is the most popular destination in Indonesia, and there is a good reason why. Bali has beaches, surfing, yoga, diving and more, but you can find this in many places around the world. In Bali, almost everything has a spiritual meaning - you’ll see exquisite flower-petal offerings everywhere you look, stand in awe of beauty of fully garbed locals, and stand still when major roads are shut down as they march to one of the myriad temple ceremonies.

At Udayana, students will have the opportunity to learn about Balinese culture both in the classroom and through multiple organized excursions offered throughout the semester. 


Course Description

Students learn economics, business, trade, culture, language and tourism, all with a focus on Asia. You will have opportunities to interact both with local and international students, and learn from lecturers with years of educational experience in international settings.
