About ASEM Work Placement
ASEM (Asia European Meeting), an information-sharing forum among Asian and European countries, launched ASEM Work Placement Pilot Programme (ASEM-WP), a work-based experience mobility program that enables participating higher education institutions to exchange students abroad for two to six months period of work placement or internship in a designated partner company. The participating countries in this network include Germany, Belgium, Brunei Darussalam, Thailand and Indonesia. In the case of Indonesia, ASEM-WP allows participating Indonesian higher education to send students for an internship to Germany and Belgium as well as receiving students from Germany and Belgium for an internship in Indonesian-based national or multinational companies.
The Indonesian Ministry of Research and Higher Education invited eleven participating universities to collaborate with Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (KADIN) and Association of Indonesian Entrepreneurs (APINDO) to conduct this AWP programme. The universities include Universitas Indonesia (UI), Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), Surabaya Institute of Technology (ITS), Bogor Institute of Agriculture (IPB), Padjadjaran University (UNPAD), Sebelas Maret University (UNS), Airlangga University (UNAIR), Diponegoro University (UNDIP), Brawijaya University (UB) and Bina Nusantara University (UBINUS).
How to find an ASEM internship in Indonesia
UBN Focal Point in Indonesia will actively engage with the companies in its network to support and to match the internship programme. UBN Indonesia will provide information about internship opportunities in Germany and Belgium based on the given information by UBN in Germany and Belgium.
Internship duration is two up to four months (the final duration of the internship is decided by your home university and host company). The academic responsibility for the internship remains in your home institution or university.
The internship programme has to be framed in a formal agreement acknowledged by the interns and the host company consisting of information on the knowledge that will be gained in the host companies, competencies after completing the internship programme, the internship duration, and the facility provided. The host company will give the interns certificate or a recognition upon completion of the programme. Institutions that make this internship programme compulsory must clearly state it along with the bearing credits, which might affect graduation.
