ACICIS is thrilled to be soon welcoming our next intake of semester students (“Semester 58”) to Indonesia in late January and early February 2024. There will be 22 students from 8 Australian universities, one European university and one university in the US!

We are hopeful to witness an increase in the number of participants in the next iterations of our semester programs. Applications for the Semester 2, 2024 Flexible Language Immersion Program, Development Studies Immersion Program, Indonesian Business, Law & Society, and Agriculture Semester Program are open and will due on 17 March 2024. Applications for our International Relations Program and West Java Field Study will close on 14 April 2024. Please share with your students.

Of the 22 students undertaking study in Indonesia through ACICIS in the first half of 2024, 15 students will be doing so with the assistance of New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants and two students with the New Colombo Plan Scholarship. Of these 22 students, 7 of them are continuing their Indonesia experience from Semester 2, 2023 (“Semester 57”) – we are pleased they are enjoying their experiences!
