In the context of a research project related to Indonesian postgraduate students, the authors conducted a pilot study focused on Indonesian students' learning. The study involved 105 students at the University of Indonesia who completed Meyer' s 88 item `experiences of learning' inventory.

Initial analyses of data from this pilot study indicate that there are some sources of variation in learning behaviour at a construct level that are noticeably characteristic of at least one main group of Indonesian students. These findings are of theoretical and practical interest. Further analyses of the data are reported and discussion is to be invited that might suggest how this information can inform future research as well as how it can be effectively utilised when working with Indonesian postgraduate students.
