Flexible Immersion at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM)
The ACICIS Flexible Immersion study option at UGM in Yogyakarta allows students to choose a mix of Indonesian language classes and other regular subjects at any other faculty at UGM, according to the language ability and interest of the student. A placement test at the start of the semester guides students in their choice of subjects, and they also have the assistance of the ACICIS staff in Yogya to make sure they choose a suitable program of study. ACICIS requires students to study at least 12 credit points (known as Sistim Kredit Semester or "SKS"), and no more than 15. Most subjects are worth 2 or 3 credit points, so students typically take four to six subjects per semester.
