Yogyakarta at a Glance
The earthquake that struck Yogyakarta in May 2006 and the eruption of Merapi volcano in 2010 may create negative thought about this city. Yogyakarta is, however, a beautiful, comfortable, and safe city to live in.
Yogyakarta is not metropolitan, but is memorable, for sure. Yogyakarta is well known for its complete education facilities, cheap and accessible transportation system, various culinary choices, and centers for shopping, arts, and entertainment.
Yogyakarta as a First Choice
Affordable Cost of Living
The main reason why Yogyakarta becomes the first choice to visit and to study is that the living cost is reasonable. As well as the affordable living cost of Yogyakarta, UKDW also offers distinguishable and excellent quality education with affordable tuition. UKDW also gives scholarships to students in need.
As a small city, various locations such as hospitals, shopping centers, bookshops, public libraries, and art centers can be reached only in minutes.
