ACICIS’ Agriculture Semester Program (ASP) allows students to take units in a number of internationally accredited study programs at Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), including subjects in agribusiness, agronomy and horticulture, plant protection, forestry, food science and technology, and animal production technology.

With classes taught in English, from an Indonesian perspective, students undertaking the ASP will be well-placed to become leaders in international agricultural development equipped with a solid understanding of the food security and resource management challenges facing Indonesia and the Indo-Pacific region.

Students also undertake a supervised professional placement at an Indonesian host organisation to complement their academic studies. Host organisations include international research organisations such as World Resources Institute (WRI), international non-government organisations such as World Agroforestry Centre and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), as well as Indonesian and international agribusiness companies.
