Yogyakarta is located in Central Java. A short plane (2-4 hours) from Bali and Jakarta. You can also catch the train from Jakarta (we recommend the overnight train). The Yogyakarta school is located in a nice part of town in Sleman with a range of homestay options and hotels.
Alam’s international reputation is demonstrated through its ongoing partnerships and cooperation with other countries. These include programs with foreign embassies such as Japan, the Netherlands, Colombia, as well as training programs with Banks, tourism industries and the private sector.
You will find more international students and researchers in Yogyakarta than anywhere else in Indonesia. Indeed, Yogyakarta is the second largest tourism destination in Indonesia after Bali. There are a lot of student organisations, research centres, recreational activities, travel and study groups, art and music collectives, expat circles and more communities, to become involved in. It should not be difficult to make new friends, both local and international. Despite growing traffic jams, malls culture and pollution, Yogyakarta retains much of its charm. There are still many beautiful and serene places to be found in the once peaceful city. However, this may not be the case for long. Yogyakarta should be seen and experienced sooner than later. It is slowly becoming more and more like the big suffocating cities of Java (Surabaya, Jakarta etc…). But this is an inevitable part of urbanization and Java’s overpopulation.
