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 Program
, Development 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.
ACICIS’ Indonesian Business, Law and Society Program (IBLS) is a semester-long program hosted by the Islamic University of Indonesia (UII), Yogyakarta.
Taught in English, this program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of Indonesian business, law and society at regional and global levels, as seen from an Indonesian perspective, while developing necessary critical skills to enter their respective fields.
Students enrol in subjects at UII’s International Schools located within the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Law. These subjects cover a range of thematic areas within business, law and society.
The IBLS also offers students the option to undertake a ‘professional placement’, enabling students to put their studies into practice and gain a real-world experience outside the classroom. Students are placed with local commercial firms, community-based organisations, government bodies, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and are given the opportunity to develop important skills in legal advocacy, public relations, administration, finance, research and reporting.
The IBLS has been designed for students with no existing Indonesian language skills; however, students with existing language skills are welcome to participate. This program also includes Indonesian language classes at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level.
An incredibly worthwhile and unforgettable experience.
