Both Australian and international universities can apply to become members of the ACICIS consortium. As a member, a university will be able to take advantage of ACICIS’ well-established in-country infrastructure and more than a decade-and-a-half of experience in sending students to Indonesia. Consortium membership is a cost-effective and credible way for member universities to send their students to Indonesia for supervised in-country study.
There are many benefits to joining ACICIS:
- ACICIS has been successfully placing international students in Indonesian universities since 1995.
- There is a large and expanding range of study options available.
- ACICIS organises a 12 month temporary resident permit (KITAS) for students. ACICIS handles the administration of that this process entails both prior to departure and once students have arrived in Indonesia.
- We have a full time Australian academic Resident Director (RD) stationed in Indonesia to oversee our in-country programs.
- The ACICIS Secretariat, based at The University of Western Australia in Perth, is staffed on a full time basis.
- We have established safety and emergency procedures for students and staff. All students, where possible, are registered with their embassies and must carry a mobile phone to allow easy and quick communication with the RD.
- All students attend a compulsory in-country orientation program at the start of their semester covering safety and security matters, study options, visa regulations, health concerns, and cultural adjustment.
- ACICIS graduates exit in-country immersion programs with a very high standard of Bahasa Indonesia.
- ACICIS runs a mailing list for alumni and others interested in Indonesia.
