Following the easing of the Australian Government restrictions pertaining to international travel, the reduction in the overall level of travel advice for Indonesia and consultation with our partner universities and relevant Indonesian authorities, ACICIS intends to resume in-country delivery of our Flexible Language Immersion ProgramDevelopment Studies Immersion Program and Indonesian Business, Law and Society Program from August 2022.

While ACICIS aims to keep the information on our website as accurate and up-to-date as possible, any advice is provided as a guide only and should not be relied upon when formulating travel and study plans. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, rules and regulations pertaining to study in Indonesia (e.g. visa and entry requirements) have changed significantly and regularly at short notice.

ACICIS anticipates that relevant rules and regulations, alongside the overall COVID-19 situation as it pertains to Indonesia, will continue to change at multiple junctures between the time of publication and the start of the August 2022 semester. Prospective participants will therefore need to be flexible in their planning, and have contingencies in place in terms of their study plans, travel plans and budget. Participants should not make any travel arrangements prior to receiving further advice in their formal “welcome letter” from ACICIS.

Please note that the below semester dates are intended as a guide only. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the provided program dates are as accurate as possible, all dates are subject to change. Academic calendars at Indonesian universities are typically issued in the months prior to the semester, and, even after issue, may be changed at short notice. ACICIS orientation dates may be moved forward or backward to accommodate changes in the semester start date at Indonesian partner universities.  Participants should not make any travel arrangements prior to receiving further advice in their formal “welcome letter” from ACICIS.

Orientation is compulsory for all students, for ALL programs. Only in instances of extreme hardship (eg. medical or family emergency) will ACICIS consider a late arrival, and this decision is made entirely at the discretion of ACICIS’ Resident Director in Indonesia. Evidence of hardship (not merely inconvenience) will be required.
