What Students Did, Thought & Their Feedback

The opportunity provided by ACICIS and the semester I spent in Jogja to dig my teeth into Indonesia, in all its complexities – social, political, religious etc – has been thrilling and invaluable.

ACICIS was thrilled to welcome 37 students from 15 Australian and 2 European universities for our semester programs (Semester 55) in Indonesia in August-December 2022. This is the first in-country semester iteration since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020! Out of 37 students, 23 received New Colombo Plan (NCP) mobility grants from the Australian Government. You can read the full summary here for the Development Studies Immersion Program (DSIP), the Flexible Language Immersion Program (FLIP), the International Relations Program (IRP), and the Indonesian Business, Law & Society (IBLS)

At the completion of the program, students are invited to complete an anonymous survey to provide feedback on their ACICIS experience. 29 out of the 37 (78%) students completed the survey. We have provided a snapshot below:
