Study Options in Indonesia
While ACICIS options are constantly developing and expanding, most ACICIS students must usually spend their first semester of study at Universitas Gadjah Mada in Yogyakarta, and typically (though not compulsory) spend their second semester at Universitas Muhammadiyah in Malang, East Java. The program at UGM allows students to choose a mix of Indonesian language and other regular UGM curriculum subjects according to the language ability and interest of the student. Because all courses are taught in Indonesian, students must already have enough basic skills in the Indonesian language to attend a university class.
The above does not apply to Islamic Studies or Journalism Professional Practicum students. These two study options are open to everyone - no background in Indonesian language is required. Students will either undergo a two-week intensive in-country language and culture course (as per the Journalism Professional Practicum study option) or assigned an Indonesian tutor/translator (as per the Islamic Studies study option).
For the present, due to social and political upheaval in Indonesia, the program is restricted to Java unless prior approval of the ACICIS Reference Group is given.
