A note from Kompas Gramedia Group

Welcome to UIG English, 

Indonesia as a nation continues to require its citizens to acquire higher language capabilities to compete internationally. Many seek to study overseas or study international programs in Indonesia which require high levels of English skills. With many international scholarships available and the Government of Indonesia providing national scholarships such as LPDP (Ministry of Finance), BUDI (Ministry of Research and Higher Education) and 5000 Doktor Program (Ministry of Religious Affairs), having English language capabilities at a highly proficient level is becoming even more important for those aspiring to attain the scholarships. In addition, the need for advanced writing skills in English for lecturers/researchers to publish International journals has become an unavoidable reality for many in the academia. Not to forget, many people in the corporate world need higher English skills to better negotiate and communicate with international clients, partners and suppliers.

With these needs in mind, we are proud to introduce our internationally benchmarked English Language center, UIG English. As part of the Kompas Gramedia Group, UIG English is an English Language provider under one of our educational entities, ELTI Gramedia. Since 2012, we have been in partnership with UTS Insearch from Sydney, Australia. UTS Insearch has been delivering English training to international students in Australia for more than 25 years and is one of the leading English language providers in Australia. As a wholly owned entity of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), UTS Insearch is the pathway provider for the university. UIG English utilises the internationally recognised Academic English curriculum from UTS Insearch and enjoys the quality assurance of the UTS Insearch academic team in Australia.
