ACICIS study Indonesia

Our Global Mobility team has grants available for those of you who wish to spend Summer 2017 studying in Indonesia on an Australian Consortium for ‘In-Country’ Indonesian Studies (ACICIS) Study Indonesia’s Professional Practicum programs.

In-Country study in Indonesia provides an opportunity to put academic study of Indonesian into practice by learning Indonesian language in its lived context, through field projects, and by undertaking Indonesian-run academic programs.

ACICIS Study Indonesia’s Professional Practicum programs include:

  • Journalism Professional Practicum
  • Creative Arts & Design Professional Practicum
  • Business Professional Practicum

ACICIS is an innovative, non-profit, national educational consortium that was established in 1994 to overcome the substantial academic, bureaucratic, and immigration impediments that had prevented Australian students from undertaking credited semester study at Indonesian universities.

There are obvious limits to learning foreign languages within classrooms in Australia, so ACICIS offers you academic alternatives to existing courses in several respects. Their focus is on immersion within Indonesian environments, including local universities, rather than on delivery of ‘enclave’ courses (a term which applies to courses designed to be an extension of Australian curriculum).

If you are looking for an opportunity to gain unique academic and industry experience that prepares you for life and work, while gaining academic credit towards their degree, apply today!

Application deadline: 1 July 2016.
