Indonesia flag


The University welcomes Indonesian students who wish to study across a range of subjects and come here from a variety of different institutions. In 2012, 93 students from Indonesia were studying at The University of Manchester.

Manchester has a very large British Muslim community as does the University. Muslim students can therefore be assured that we understand their needs. Our refectories serve halal food, we have a mosque on campus and there is an Islamic Students Society which plays an active and constructive role in the life of the University.

Scholarship information

We are delighted to accept applications from prospective students in Indonesia who are intending to study in the UK through the Indonesia-UK DIKTI Scholarship Programme.

The programme, administered by the Indonesian Ministry of Education Directorate General of Higher Education (DIKTI), will fund 750 scholarships over the next five years. 

The scholarships cover three years of PhD study and include tuition fees, accommodation and salary. All academic disciplines and research areas are funded under the programme. Scholarships will mainly be granted for PhD study but some masters degrees may also be funded.

The first scholarships will be available for courses with a September 2013 start.
