Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards


In 2023, Warwick welcomed ten students from the Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards (IISMA), the Indonesian Government student mobility scholarship scheme. The undergraduates spent one semester at Warwick, experiencing a new culture and undertaking practical assignments to enhance their skills.

How does this experience work?

IISMA culture

Access to Cultural Opportunities

Our IISMA students are supported by a tailored programme of English language tuition and cultural orientation provided by Warwick's department of Applied Linguistics. .

This year the group attended a day trip to London to see the sights of the vibrant capital city, and a trip to Warwick Castle to visit one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in the world, that transported them back to a time of great battles, ancient myths and spellbinding tales. Finally, they attended a visit to Stratford Upon Avon to a local market town that was the birthplace to William Shakespeare and houses the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre along the banks of the River Avon.

The IISMA students also attended a Pub Quiz night, Talent Show and pizza night, and festive events at Christmas time such as the University Carol Service and Christmas Jumper Day. They also organised their own successful Indonesian event to showcase the culture, food and dance of Indonesia to other students at Warwick.

Life as a Warwick Student

Prior to attending the University, our students are invited to attend a seminar about life at Warwick and received information about Student Support and wellbeing at the University.

We offer guidance and advice for our students to navigate the travel and immigration requirement and find accommodation. We offer a full orientation program, student buddies and support network.

Our students had the opportunity to attend a talk about Postgraduate student and to speak to departmental representatives that are relevant to their degrees.

“IISMA is worth the fight! IISMA selection process was—and probably will continue to be—tough, but I can confidently say that it will be worth it. Preparing for IISMA's selection process will equip you with so many skills, including essay writing and interview skills. Getting accepted will feel so rewarding, and the whole student mobility experience itself will be an eye-opening journey. (Also: I would really recommend the next batch of IISMA applicants to apply to the University of Warwick!)”. - Natasha Saraswati
