Sampoerna University established with a clear goal of meeting national and international standards

Academic Affairs

Sampoerna University is a fully accredited Indonesian university that offers the best option for those seeking a superior international education. This is possible because Sampoerna University is the only American-style university in Indonesia that aligns with American standards for curriculum, faculty, facilities and operations. In collaboration with the University of Arizona, we offer a Dual Degree Program that allows you to study for 4 years in Jakarta under the U.S. curriculum and graduate with 2 degrees: an accredited U.S. bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona and an accredited Sarjana (Strata 1) degree from Sampoerna University.

In addition, for those currently rescheduling their overseas studies due to concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can continue to graduate ON TIME by taking advantage of our U.S. curriculum while earning international college credits. With our international partnership, you may transfer seamlessly to a U.S. university the following year and graduate overseas as scheduled.
