Please note that the below semester dates are intended as a guide only. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the provided program dates are as accurate as possible, all dates are subject to change. Academic calendars at Indonesian universities are typically issued in the months prior to the semester, and, even after issue, may be changed at short notice. ACICIS orientation dates may be moved forward or backward to accommodate changes in the semester start date at Indonesian partner universities. We therefore strongly encourage all prospective applicants not to make travel arrangements until they receive formal notice of their acceptance onto the program. Fixed orientation dates and advice regarding the purchase of return tickets will be provided with acceptance correspondence. Participants who purchase tickets in advance of receiving formal notice of their acceptance do so at their own risk.

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.
