As a pioneer of higher education in the country,
Universitas Islam Indonesia is strongly rooted in the tradition of academic freedom, where the diversity of thoughts is highly respected. With a vibrant learning environment and a flair for innovation, we are committed to nurturing students to be innovative global leaders.
Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) is one of the leading private universities in Indonesia. Inspired by the spirit of nationalism and guided by perennial values, UII was founded one month before the proclamation of Indonesian independence in 1945. UII now has grown into a great place for learning. Located at the northern outskirt of Yogyakarta, the heart of Javanese culture, the main campus, overlooking the stunning beauty of Merapi, is a perfect place to study.
Learning is discovering treasure within oneself. With 4 doctoral, 11 master, 4 professional, 24 undergraduate, and 4 vocational programs covering a wide spectrum of knowledge, UII enables its students to discover their own treasures and achieve their brighter future.
We realize that perfection is a fruit of lifetime innovations and tireless efforts. Internally, this is carried out by providing modern facilities and maintaining quality assurance. To support the learning process, 10 libraries, 82 laboratories, and 27 research centers, are provided for research and education. Meanwhile, a great masjid, bookstore, sport hall, auditoriums, hospital, and student convention center are among first-rate facilities available in UII campuses.
To ensure that learning in UII is conducted with the highest standard, quality is put firmly in place. As a result, in 2009, the Government of Indonesia ranks UII first nationally in Quality Assurance. UII also earns the ISO 9001:2008 certificate as an evidence of international recognition. In 2013, UII achieves ‘A’ grade for its institutional accreditation by the Indonesian National Accreditation Board with the highest score among other private universities in Indonesia.
In 2015, Universitas Islam Indonesia was ranked in the top ten of the best universities in Indonesia over the field of higher education management and organizational quality by the Government of Indonesia. In 2016, UII was awarded by the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (Kemenristekdikti) as the best private university in Indonesia based on its research performance. We also received the honor as a three star institution based on assessment in the QS University Rating by Quacquarelli Symonds in 2016. This result has place us as one of the universities with the best overall rating in Indonesia.
Aspiring to be a world class university, in achieving excellence, UII develops extensive networks with prominent universities such as Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia; Hokkaido University, Japan; Solbridge International Business School, Korea; The University of Hawaii at Manoa, The United States; and Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Netherlands.
The fruits of innovation are diverse. More than 84,000 UII alumni are serving Indonesia and the world at large in many fields and many ways while maintaining professionalism and ethical values, to which UII vision is anchored.
