Program Details

ACICIS’ Development Studies Immersion Program (DSIP) is a semester-long community development option hosted by Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Yogyakarta. This program allows participants to gain valuable ‘hands on’ experience in the field of international development through ‘frontline’ community development projects.

The DSIP Development Placement is a two-month professional placement in partnership with local NGOs, community-based organisations and government agencies in Yogyakarta.

The Development Placement offers students the chance to apply theoretical development knowledge in real-life professional contexts while fostering important practical skills in advocacy, public relations, administration, research and monitoring and evaluation.
