Politeknik Internasional Bali


The Politeknik International Bali campus is strategically located in a fast-growing tourism area in Bali between Kuta Beach and Tanah Lot. The area is surrounded by international tourism and hospitality brands, but is quiet, with beautiful, green surroundings. PIB’s vision is to educate excellent graduates who are highly skilled in their fields of expertise, leadership, and entrepreneurial skills. With numerous cooperation partners in the tourism and gastronomy industry, as well as an internationally-trained team, the focus is on practical classes. The entire campus of the PIB is generously and impressively designed. All rooms and equipment are upscale, to international standards.


At the end of the program, students who satisfactorily complete all course requirements will be awarded certificates as follows:

  • A certificate stating that the student has attended the program;
  • An Academic Transcript showing the student’s performance in the program. The grades in the transcript are the final marks;
  • A Certificate stating that the student has participated in workshops and academic excursions (on request).


Each module’s credits are transferable to the European Credits Transfer System (ECTS).

If you want to have the subjects credited at your home university, we suggest having the course pre-approved by the home institution’s exchange coordinator, academic advisor, or a professor. Whoever is in charge of credit transfer should sign a “Learning Agreement” in order to provide a transparent and efficient preparation of the study period abroad and to ensure that the student will receive recognition for the educational components successfully completed abroad.


Every student will require a valid visa called “VISA SOSIAL BUDAYA,” with a maximum validity of 180 days. The visa can be obtained from the Indonesian embassy in your home country.


Usually, participants form groups and rent a house or a villa (a house with pool) together. We have a Facebook group for each semester, where the students can meet the other participants. For those who would like to book an accommodation beforehand, we recommend the websites  Auslandssemester Bali and Rentroom Bali, which offer accommodations at student prices.

The PIB also offers rooms in its own student dorm. Please ask for further information.

Additional Costs

The cost of living is relatively low in Bali. However, it is difficult to say how much money you will need for the 15 weeks, as it strongly depends on the individual lifestyle.
