Flexible Language Immersion
Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogyakarta
This program is the largest and longest-running of ACICIS options. It 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 – everyone from beginners to advanced students welcome!

Field Study
Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang (UnMuh), Malang 
For advanced language students capable of independent study, this option allows students to undertake field research through UnMuh. Usually, advanced students undertake this option following a semester at UGM. Many students devise and undertake their own study projects and many also choose to incorporate these projects into an honours program (with the approval of their home university).

Islamic Studies
Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII), Yogyakarta
This is a semester-long program on Islamic Studies with the option to specialize in Islam business, Islam law or Islamic society. Subjects such as Syariah Financial Accounting, Islamic Thought and Civilization and Islamic Criminal Law are taught in English. NO BACKGROUND IN INDONESIAN LANGUAGE NEEDED, and students are assigned an Indonesian tutor/translator to help them navigate life in Indonesia. Students are also able to study Indonesian and Arabic language and/or undertake an internship at an Islamic organisation.

Indonesian Arts
Universitas Seni Indonesia (ISI), Yogyakarta
This option is available for advanced language students. Students can study gamelan, wayang kulit, dance, theatre, art, sculpture and many other subjects. This option is also open to performers, teachers and anyone interested in learning Indonesian arts, not just students. As subjects are all taught in Indonesian, an advanced level of Indonesian is required.

Development Studies Immersion Program
Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogakarta
This is a semester-long community development program for students who would like to undertake a longer period of study in Indonesia and who have an interest in rural development issues. The DSIP program runs parallel to other ACICIS programs at UGM, but has the important distinction of a community development field work module that will see students involved in hands-on development work for 8 weeks of the semester. Some Indonesian language experience required.

International Relations
