This study identifies the pattern of Internet use among Indonesian students at the University of Malaya. It focuses on the benefits of the Internet in searching for information usage, pattern and the frequency of students' use of the Internet for learning as well as the problems these students faced. The population of this study comprises of two hundred post-graduate (master and doctorate) students from various faculties. The qualitative methodology was used in the study and was done by distributing questionnaire. Indonesian postgraduate students are the main respondents. This study aims to determine Internet usage pattern amongst Indonesian postgraduate students. It has shown that students do gain benefits from the use of Internet for learning. The result shows 91% of the students have benefited from the usage of the Internet in learning and information searching. It is believed that most current and global information are the main factors that attract students to use the Internet. About 25% to 50% of the information from the Internet is used by the students for their learning. The frequency of Internet usage amongst the students is 2 to 4 hours a day. Based on the results of this study, it is indicated that 73.7% of the students are at master level, while 26.3% are PhD students. The study identifies some major problems among the Indonesian students in using the Internet such as "slow Internet connection" and "too much information". The respondents claim that it is difficult to find the information that is relevant to their subjects. It is therefore the responsibility of the university and the library to look into the problems and to provide alternative solutions on ways to provide faster Internet connection to the students.
