ACICIS is delighted to be welcoming students back to Indonesia to undertake ACICIS semester programs. There will be 25 students from ten Australian universities and one European university studying in Indonesia commencing in February 2023 (Semester 56).

Although the numbers of ACICIS semester program students 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 25 students undertaking study in Indonesia through ACICIS in the first half of 2023, 16 are doing so with the assistance of New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants, and one will be doing so with the support of New Colombo Plan Scholarships.

ACICIS will have five semester programs running in Yogyakarta next semester, namely the Flexible Language Immersion Program (FLIP), Development Studies Immersion Program (DSIP), International Relations Program (IRP), and West Java Field Study (WJFS) at Gadjah Mada University (UGM) as well as the Indonesian Business, Law and Society (IBLS) Program at Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII).

The composition of ACICIS’ February 2023 semester program intake 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!
