During the Covid-19 pandemic, the ACICIS Indonesian Language Short Course (ILSC) will be offered virtually, with the support of the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan.

This program provides intensive Indonesian language training for students from introductory to advanced levels.

Running in three-week sessions during university vacation periods, students can undertake the program either to fast-track or supplement language studies at their home university, or, for those students exploring an emerging interest in Indonesia, as an immersive introduction to the Indonesian language.

The program consists of intensive Indonesian language tuition incorporating language classes and interactive cultural experiences. Students may take either a single three-week course, or two consecutive three-week courses to create a six-week program of study (January-February only).

A fantastic virtual program that has provided a solid foundation of the Indonesian language and given me the confidence to speak with local Indonesians when travel resumes. ACICIS Past Participant on the Virtual Indonesian Language Short Course


ACICIS’ programs in Indonesia operate under the direction of the ACICIS Resident Director.

In addition, ACICIS administrative staff both in Australia and Indonesia are assigned to oversee all aspects of the program – including program development, delivery, and evaluation. ACICIS administrative staff will check in with participants throughout the program and are available during business hours to assist with any concerns.

All academic components of the program delivered by Satya Wacana University in Salatiga are supervised and assessed by academic staff from UKSW’s Language Training Centre (LTC).


The ILSC can be undertaken as either a three- or six- week program of study structured as follows:

  • A three-week intensive language course (approximately 140 hours total time commitment) delivered online by Satya Wacana Christian University (UKSW);
  • Two consecutive three-week intensive language courses (approximately 280 hours total time commitment) delivered online by UKSW.
