In recent years there has been a marked increase in the number and variety of courses in Indonesian language and area studies offered in Indonesia, under collaborative arrangements with Australian universities. The first part of this paper attempts to take stock of such developments, by outlining the range of current 'in-country' Indonesian studies courses, and commenting briefly on some of their relative strengths and limitations. In so-doing it does not claim to detail comprehensively all 'in-country' language programs by every Australian university, but rather concentrates on select illustrations of various types of programs. It asserts that demand by Australian students for opportunities to study in Indonesia is likely to grow rapidly in coming years and argues, in the second half of the paper, that there is a strong justification for the establishment of a consortium to facilitate particular kinds of 'in-country' course.
