Islamic Studies in Yogyakarta
4 good reasons to study at Universitas Islam Indonesia
1. Unique Study Program
ACICIS offers a semester-long program on Islamic Studies with the option to specialise in Islamic Business, Islamic Law or Islamic Society. Subjects are taught in English at Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) in Yogyakarta. This is a unique opportunity to study at an Islamic university in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation.
Students can study a number of subjects including Syariah Financial Accounting and Business Ethics from an Islamic Perspective. The experience will give participants greater insight into the Indonesian economy, and a deeper understanding of how Muslim values and laws can and do affect approaches to business, particularly in Indonesia.
Students can study subjects such as Introduction to Islamic Law and Islamic Criminal Law to gain an understanding of Islamic legal principles and issues. Participants will learn about the historical development of Islamic Law and its contemporary application in an Indonesian context.
Subjects including Islamic Teaching (Religious Practice) and Islamic Thought & Civilization allow students to explore the relationship between religion and society and gain an understanding of the important role that Islam plays in the lives of many Indonesians. Students can also study Indonesian Language and Culture to learn the skills to communicate effectively in Bahasa Indonesia and to adapt to life in-country. In addition to Indonesian, Arabic Language and Culture is available through the Faculty of International Language and Cultural Study.
The Islamic Studies option is not just open to Australian students: anyone interested in knowing more about Islam, and experiencing Islam in an Indonesian context, is welcome to apply. Australian students who go to Indonesia with ACICIS normally get their courses credited towards their degree at their home university in Australia. This may well be true for students in other countries too, but you must check this for yourself with your home faculty’s administration department.

2. UII Internship
A key highlight of the Islamic Studies Program is the internship, which enables students to put their studies into practice and to gain real-world experience outside of the classroom. This experiential unit will provide students with valuable international and professional experience in the world’s most populous Muslim country, which will enhance their understanding of Islam, its application into business, law and society, and the challenges of living and working in a developing economy. In addition to this internship, it is expected that students will undertake a total of 6-9 SKS (credit points) worth of subjects throughout the semester. In order to facilitate easy communication, an Indonesian interpreter or internship partner will accompany each student. Students will be required to write a work report of between 3000 and 4000 words and present their report in an end of semester class seminar.
Internship placements include:
If students are interested in an internship and there does not appear to be a suitable placement, they should contact ACICIS directly as the secretariat may be able to arrange an alternative placement.

3. Student Life and Accommodation
Michael Costa (Semester 25) says:
Family members, including children, can also accompany applicants.
4. Living in Yogyakarta
Yogyakarta is Indonesia's cultural heartland and there are always plenty of events and performances taking place in and around the city.
