Indonesian high school students wishing to receive an internationally recognized degree in hotel management may be eligible scholarships and discounts on tuition fees offered from the Bali campus of Stenden University.
Stenden University Bali is part of a global network with campus sites in The Netherlands, South Africa, Qatar and Thailand. This provides opportunities to do part of the program at any of the other campus sites offering the identical curriculum of International Hospitality Management. With the global industrial networks, students can also do their internship abroad.
Stenden offers discounts on tuition fees of 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% to deserving Indonesian student. Eligibility is based on the candidate’s high school grades, motivation and record of extra-curricular activities. The scholarship gives students a chance to join the International Hospitality Management Program in Bali with a double Bachelor’s degree upon graduation (Indonesian Sarjana Ekonomi and Dutch Bachelor of Business Administration). During this four-year course, students will move to Stenden’s main campus site in the Netherlands for one year. The tuition fees, to which the scholarship discount applies, include studying and accommodation for one year in the Netherlands as well as a return flight ticket adding up to USD 35,000 in savings over four years.
The scholarship is only for students of Indonesian nationality. Applicants should be students in their last year of high school or have graduated from high school no later than 2010. Those seeking a scholarship should have an exceptional study record and a strong motivation to pursue a career in hospitality. The scholarship can last for the entire period of study, depending on academic results, which will be reviewed annually.
“With this initiative Stenden strives to make high quality, international education more accessible to Indonesian students. Our program, with its international scope and its strong focus on management throughout the curriculum, gives them the right foundation to start a successful national or international management career in the hospitality industry,” explains Stenden Bali general manager, Maureen van der Meché.
With all subjects being taught in English by lecturers of multi-cultural backgrounds, Stenden offers an international standard of education.
“The lecturers here come from as diverse backgrounds as Indonesia, the Netherlands, England, Australia and South Africa. I also have classmates from different nationalities such as Italian, English, Finnish, Dutch, German, Russia and Swiss, which gives me a valuable opportunity to develop my communication skills and learn their cultures which I believe will be very useful if you want to have an international career in hospitality,” says Kadek Dwi Anggayani, a full scholarship recipient from Bali.
Another full scholarship recipient from Jakarta, Joshua Ega Yus Pratama added: “Bali is also the centre of hospitality and tourism in Indonesia which makes studying at Stenden University Bali close to the industry. The campus is also often involved in social responsibility activities organised by hospitality organisations and arranges company visits to hotels, resorts, spas and visitors attractions, which allow students to have networking opportunities with the industry. “
Stenden University Bali has four intakes per year; February, April, September, November. These scholarships are available to students who want to enroll in September 2013.
The application deadline for the scholarship program is June 21, 2013.
