Delegates from a law faculty in Indonesia have met with their Charles Darwin University counterparts to discuss the New Colombo Plan (NCP) student mobility program.

University Indonesia (UI) academics and staff recently travelled to Casuarina campus, along with NT Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia representatives, to discuss the future of the program.

CDU Law lecturer Jeswynn Yogaratnam said the meeting aimed to facilitate cross-border and cross-cultural legal studies for student learning in Indonesia.

“Our relationship with University Indonesia will provide the track record to prospective student mobility programs in Indonesia,” he said.

Attendees also discussed drafting an agreement of cooperation between CDU and the UI law faculties, along with discussions on potential collaborative research projects with CDU law academics.

CDU’s School of Law was the first law school in Australia to receive a student mobility grant for law programs in Indonesia under the NCP.

The Commonwealth Government’s NCP aims to support Australian undergraduate students to pursue semester-based and short-term study across a range of disciplines in the Indo-Pacific region.
