Please note that whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the below program dates are as accurate as possible, all dates are subject to change as academic calendars are only issued between six – nine months prior to the start of semester, and as such, partner institutions may change or amend their dates at short notice. Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility.

Orientation is compulsory for all students, for ALL programs. Only in instances of extreme hardship (eg. medical or family emergency) will ACICIS consider a late arrival, and this decision is made entirely at the discretion of ACICIS’ Resident Director in Indonesia. Evidence of hardship (not merely inconvenience) will be required.

2017 Application Dates

There are two application cut-off dates for the JPP, DSPP, BPP and CADPP.

  • First round applications: 1 July 2016: Submissions by July 1st will have early bird priority. ACICIS will commence filling available positions from this date.
  • Second round applications: 1 October 2016: The availability of placements will be contingent upon the number of participants accepted in the first application round.

Candidates will be notified of acceptance within two weeks of each application date.

All students must arrive in Jakarta the day/night before orientation. The orientation program is compulsory.

Pre-program arrival and travel is permitted. Participants are advised, however, that their visa is valid for a maximum of 60 days and must cover the entire duration of the six-week program. So please carefully calculate arrival and departure dates. Note that the duration of the 60-day Social-Cultural visa commences from the date that participants enter the country, not the date of issue of the visa itself. For participants arriving early, please note that demand for hotel rooms in Jakarta will be very high on the evening of December 31 and rates will double/ treble accordingly. Participants intending to stay in Jakarta on New Year’s Eve are advised to book accommodation well in advance.
