How much does the ACICIS Virtual Indonesian Language Short Course cost?

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 online language classes, cultural classes, and virtual fieldtrips. 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).

ACICIS’ ILSC is open to Australian and international students enrolled at both ACICIS member universities and non-member universities, as well as to private participants.

Payment Process and Terms

Administration Fee Payment

The administration fee ($200) is payable upon your successful acceptance into the program. Upon sending you formal notification of your acceptance, ACICIS will issue you with an electronic payment link for this fee. Settlement of your administration fee is due within seven days of payment link issuance unless otherwise negotiated and approved (in writing) by the ACICIS Secretariat. ACICIS will not commence work on setting up your course enrolment at Satya Wacana University until your administration fee has been settled. The administration fee is non-refundable.

Tuition Fee Payment

Upon your successful acceptance into the program, ACICIS will issue you with a second electronic payment link for payment of the ACICIS tuition fee.  The tuition fee must be paid in full to ACICIS four weeks prior to the program commencement. Unless otherwise negotiated and approved (in writing) by the ACICIS Secretariat, failure to settle payment of your tuition fee within the specified time frame will result in the forfeiture of your place on the program.

*Please note: if you are receiving a New Colombo Plan (NCP) mobility grant to support your study with ACICIS, you may not receive your grant until after your program fees are due. Unless otherwise negotiated and approved (in writing) by the ACICIS Secretariat, you will need to settle all program fees within the specified time frame regardless of when you receive your NCP grant.

If you are a Commonwealth supported Australian university student, you may be able to partially or fully defer payment of your ACICIS tuition fee through HECS-HELP. Your ability to defer payment of the ACICIS tuition fee in this manner is dependent on the arrangements in place at your home university for the management of Commonwealth funding schemes. If in doubt, contact the ACICIS Secretariat for advice on who to speak to at your university about deferring payment of your ACICIS tuition fee via HECS-HELP.

Withdrawal and Refunds

The administration fee is non-refundable.

Withdrawal from the program after the tuition fee has been paid to ACICIS and up until commencement of the program will attract a withdrawal fee of 40% with the balance of the tuition fee being refundable. After program commencement, no refunds – partial or otherwise – will be possible.

If you are enrolled in a home university subject code for the purposes of undertaking this ACICIS program, arrangements for the withdrawal from this subject code – and any applicable financial and/or academic penalties – are determined by the regulations in force at your home university. You are advised to consult with your home university or faculty administration regarding applicable subject withdrawal policies, procedures, and penalties. If in doubt, contact the ACICIS Secretariat for advice concerning who to speak to at your university about this.
