Abstract

Deakin University “In Country Program” is a program that provides a 'total immersion' experience for Deakin university students in studying and experiencing Indonesian language and culture in UIN Maulana Malik Ibrahim Malang, Indonesia. The 6 weeks program enables the Australian students to build interaction and communication with Indonesian people in a daily activities. In understanding the students’ cultural experience built from the program, this paper will discuss the question of interculturality that is experienced among the Australian students attending the “In-Country Program.” By observing and interviewing the students, the study shows that interculturality is an important aspect to be built in Islamic education. Interculturality is a perspective to understand different culture, different identities and able to build his/her own identities through the interaction and communication in different cultural context. Through the intercultural competence shaped, the students are able to build a more positive, emphatic understanding towards other culture that is different from their own and that is often misundestood such as Islamic religion and Muslim people.
