“The ACICIS Indonesian Language Short Course was an invaluable immersion into Indonesian language and culture which I couldn’t recommend enough”

Anonymous respondent in the Student Feedback Survey

ACICIS was thrilled to welcome 37 students from 10 Australian universities for the Indonesian Language Short Course (ILSC) in Salatiga, Indonesia in January-February 2023. This is the first in-country ILSC since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020! Out of 37 students, 22 received New Colombo Plan (NCP) mobility grants from the Australian Government.

During their time in Salatiga, besides studying at the Satya Wacana University, students were also able to explore the city and neighbouring town, as well as to immerse with their Indonesian counterparts at the university. Here are photos taken by our Social media Ambassador, Perry Carmichael and Jade Kingston from the Australian National University during the program :
