ACICIS is a non-profit organisation made up of a consortium of
Australian and international member universities. We are dedicated to keeping
the costs associated with studying in Indonesia to an absolute minimum so we can
make in-country study affordable for everyone.
a general outline of the costs for studying with ACICIS in any of our
semester-long study options.
Some of the costs such as airfares and insurance may vary so applicants must check
prices for themselves. Changes in visa or tuition fees are beyond the control
of ACICIS so we therefore reserve the right to alter fee structures without notice.

of ACICIS pay lower tuition fees because their universities have paid a membership
fee to join ACICIS. This membership fee is AUD$5,200 (plus 10% GST) per annum. New
member universities from Australia and around the world are welcome to join
