INTI College Indonesia Officially Becomes Raffles College. INTI College Indonesia (ICI), which is one of the private universities in Indonesia, officially changed its name to Raffles College as of the first (1) August 2015 in connection with the acquisition of ICI by Raffles Group of School Indonesia. The Raffles Group consists of four (4) campuses (raffles university) and two (2) colleges with a total student population of around 2,000.
The name Raffles College is a rebranding of ICI and Raffles Academy which is an affiliate of Raffles International Christian School (RICS). RICS is an official Cambridge International Examination school that helps prepare students for Cambridge IGCSE and International A-level qualifications. The school is known for its excellent performance in both academic and non-academic fields. These two foundations are under the auspices of the Ora Et Labora Christian Education Foundation and the Bhinneka School Education Foundation which were founded by the late William Soeryajaya (a well-known businessman in Indonesia and founder of the Astra Group) and Radius Prawiro (former Minister of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia).
Raffles College focuses on providing pathway programs to top universities around the world to obtain Bachelor, Master and other professional qualifications. The existing programs will continue at ICI and students who are currently studying will continue to complete their studies. Raffles College will offer new programs to meet the needs of the wider community on two (2) campuses, Kebon Jeruk and Kelapa Gading.
The programs offered at the two campuses are the International University Foundation, the Australian Degree Transfer Program, the Accounting Program (ACCA-Oxford Brooke University UK), and the design programs from FMDS (First Media Design School) in Singapore and the University of West England in England.
Programs at Raffles College aim to prepare students adept at problem solving and analytical thinking, as well as a broad knowledge of the world of business. The collaboration between these two institutions and the courses offered will provide many benefits for students such as an extensive network of introductions in an industrial environment, quality student quality, and others.
