1. Classes and coursework at Parahyangan University (UNPAR)

All students undertake full-time study at UNPAR in the Department of International Relations. Students are required to complete a total of 15-18 SKS (credit points) per semester on this program, approximately 5-6 subjects.

Below is a list of subjects taught in English, available to ACICIS students undertaking the IRP in 2018/2019:

N.B. Students should note that they can only select one of the Professional Placement options.

2. Completion of Professional Placement (optional)

There are two placement streams available as part of the IRP, and students should only select one option. They can either undertake the Professional Placement – Department of International Relations or the Professional Placement – Department of Management. Students who opt to undertake one of the Professional Placement streams will complete their placement either alongside their UNPAR classes (1-2 days per week around classes). In the January-June semester students have the option to complete their placement as a five-week ‘block’ at the end of their semester.

Throughout either of the professional placement options, students undertake a supervised placement at a participating Host Organisation. Required tasks will vary depending on each Host Organisation, but generally may include: research and report writing, content editing, website editing, translation, data entry, monitoring and evaluation, and other tasks as required by individual Host Organisations. For more details on possible Host Organisations and specific placement tasks and duties by Host Organisation, see here.

3. Optional Indonesian Language Classes

Indonesian language classes are also available to students undertaking the International Relations Program. These classes are offered through the Foreign Language Section of UNPAR’s Career Development Centre (PPK), and taught through an independent language provider at the university. As such, results for any language classes undertaken will not appear on a student’s academic transcript from UNPAR. Students will, however, receive a certificate from UNPAR’s PPK stating the number of hours of language instruction undertaken and an overall mark achieved for this language instruction.

Students must enrol in language classes through UNPAR’s International Collaboration’s Office to have their language instruction fees covered as part of their ACICIS tuition fee. This can be done at orientation, with the assistance of ACICIS staff.

Language classes do not attract any SKS and therefore can be taken in addition to a student’s 15-18 SKS subject load undertaken through UNPAR’s Department of International Relations (see list provided at item 1).
