After three years at SLTP the Indonesian education system requires students to complete a further three years at a Senior Secondary School (SLTA) before they can participate in formal Tertiary Education at University level. There are many types of Senior Secondary Schools (SMA, SMUN, SMK, MAN, etc.) including; Public, Vocational, and Religious. It is probably important to note that in Indonesia the public school sector maintains dual vocational (SMK) and professional streaming (SMU). However, while the number of places in tertiary institutions remains inadequate and education is relatively expensive only a small proportion of SMU students actually participate. This poses some major questions as to the relevence of a purely academic SMU curriculum and the effeciency of a dual system.
