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.
The Flexible Language Immersion Program is ACICIS’ largest and longest standing in-country study program. Hosted by one of Indonesia’s premier universities, Gadjah Mada University (UGM), the language immersion program offers participants great flexibility in designing a study program to meet home university equivalency requirements or to suit a student’s personal interests.
Students can choose a mix of Indonesian language classes and other regular curriculum immersion subjects at many of UGM’s other faculties, according to the language ability and interest of the student. A placement test at the start of the semester guides students in their choice of subjects, with the assistance of the ACICIS staff in Yogya. ACICIS requires students to study at least 12 credit points (known as Sistim Kredit Semester or “SKS”), and no more than 15. Most subjects are worth 2 or 3 credit points, so students typically take four to six subjects per semester. Language units with INCULS are exclusively for foreign students. Regular units are units taken by local Indonesian students as a part of their degree program. They are delivered in Indonesian.
Students may also involve themselves in multiple extra-curricular activities, which will help them develop their language skills and provide them with in-depth cultural knowledge about Indonesia.
The ACICIS study experience in Indonesia offers every student the opportunity to make their future truly remarkable.ACICIS Past Participant
