ACICIS is thrilled to be welcoming 92 students from 16 Australian universities on the very first in-country iteration of the Professional Practicum programs in Summer 2023 since the pandemic. Although we are not quite back to pre-pandemic numbers, as we can see in the below graph, we are optimistic that student interest will grow as international travel normalises.

Of the 92 students undertaking study through ACICIS in summer 2023, 84 are doing so with the assistance of New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants. The breakdown of summer 2023 Professional Practicum Program students by sending university is as follows:

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!
