ACICIS is pleased to be welcoming 39 students from 13 Australian universities back to Indonesia on the very first in-country iteration of the Indonesian Language Short Course (ILSC) in Summer 2023 since the summer 2020 intake. Although we are not quite back to pre-pandemic numbers, as we can see in the below graph, we are optimistic that there will be growth in student interest as international travel normalises. Applications for the Winter 2023 iteration will open soon – please tell your students!

Of the 39 students undertaking study through ACICIS in summer 2023, 27 are doing so with the assistance of New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants. The breakdown of summer 2023 Indonesian Language Short Course students by sending university is as follows:


University No. of Students
The Australian National University 15
The University of Melbourne 5
Charles Darwin University 3
The University of Western Australia 3
Curtin University 2

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!
