Bali WISE is very pleased to announce the start of intake 44. After having been closed for 8 months since March 2020, the Bali WISE program has welcomed 13 students from Bali. Starting this month November, the students will follow the educational training program. As all students are Balinese, they will stay at the campus during the week and are allowed to return to their families on the weekends.
