Yes it is for real. I’ve just given a lecture in Wollongong University at the Center for Maritime Policy. Guess what! The lecture was for master degree, not for undergraduate. How come? How can a master student give a lecture for master degree? Ask Clive for the answers 🙂
The students are all Indonesians from [nearly] all around Indonesia. Some of them are from Department of Fisheries and Marine Affairs, while some others are from Regional Governments.
They looked very entusiastic listening to my lecture about Indonesia’s Internal Boundary Issues. It was understanable as it was the only lecture in Bahasa Indonesia. A student, jokingly, said that my lecture is the only lecture he can understand, making his colleagues laugh.
It was a very good experience!
