Research internship at Nuffic Neso Indonesia: developing a sustainable business model for ETC

Erasmus Training Centre (ETC) is a Dutch language institute based in Jakarta on the premises of the Dutch embassy. It has provided Dutch language and culture courses in Indonesia since 1981. Due to cuts in Dutch subsidies the ETC discontinued its services temporarily in July 2015. Nonetheless, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Indonesia, four Dutch Higher Education Insitutions (DHEI) and Nuffic Neso collaborated in an effort to save ETC, considering  that continuation of ETC  is of significant importance for Indonesia and for the DHEIs who are active in Indonesia. ETC was able to continue activities from September 2015 onwards with support from its operating partners (VU Amsterdam, Groningen University, Stenden University, Leiden University) and facilitating partners (Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Indonesia and Nuffic Neso). As a result the ETC turned from a fully subsidized institution increasingly into a market-oriented training centre with growing  positive results and added value for  DHEIs. However, a remaining challenge is that the ETC has not yet reached the point of running operations self-sufficiently, which will be necessary in the longer run in order to secure a sustainable future for the organisation. Hence, a viable business model needs to be developed in close cooperation with the participating DHEIs.

What will you be doing?

Based at the Nuffic Neso Indonesia office, housed in the Netherlands Embassy in Jakarta, you will conduct consultations with ETC’s Director & staff, ETC’s facilitating partners and other relevant stakeholders or resource persons. Additionally, you will be reviewing relevant documentation (e.g. ETC vision and ambitions document) and other data to get an understanding about the current situation and future goals for Dutch language training and academic preparations to study or conduct research in the Netherlands.

You will be reporting to Nuffic Neso Indonesia and the Netherlands Embassy in Jakarta and receive guidance and instructions from these parties. The outcome of your research will be a concept note with appreciation of the sustainability of the current business model, an updated scenario based business strategy and other recommendations on creating conditions which will facilitate sustainable future of ETC.


To maximize the international learning experience, we will appoint two interns, one from Indonesia and one from the Netherlands who will work closely together.
