ACICIS is pleased to be welcoming 30 students from 7 Australian universities  in the in-country iteration of the Indonesian Language Short Course (ILSC) in Winter 2023. Although we are not quite back to pre-pandemic numbers, as we can see in the below graph, we are optimistic that the interests in the program will grow as time progresses. Please note that the number indicated in 2023 is the combination of the number of students in both Summer and Winter 2023 sessions of the program.

We would like to share as well that the 2nd round of applications for the Summer 2024 sessions are now open and will due in 13 August – please tell your students!

Of the 39 students undertaking study through ACICIS in summer 2023, 23 are doing so with the assistance of New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants.  and two will be doing so with the support of the New Colombo Plan (NCP) Scholarships. The winner of ACICIS Bahasa Sesh challenge in 2022 will also be participating in the upcoming iteration. The breakdown of winter 2023 Indonesian Language Short Course students by sending university is as follows:

University No. of Students

We would like to sincerely thank our consortium members, for the support in promoting ACICIS programs and assisting students with their applications this year. It has been an exciting and challenging year with tight deadlines and we are grateful for the ongoing support.

ACICIS also gratefully acknowledges the financial support it has received through the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan Mobility Program, which has partially underwritten the development of many ACICIS programs through the provision of student mobility grants.

Terima kasih banyak!
