The ACICIS Indonesian Language Short Course provides intensive Indonesian language training for students from introductory to advanced levels.

Running in three-week sessions during university vacation periods, students can undertake the program either to fast-track or supplement language studies at their home university, or, for those students exploring an emerging interest in Indonesia, as an in-country, immersive introduction to the Indonesian language.

The program consists of intensive Indonesian language tuition incorporating language classes, cultural classes, and fieldtrips. Students may take either a single three-week course, or two consecutive three-week courses to create a six-week program of study (January-February only).

ACICIS runs three three-week ILSC sessions each year, scheduled to accommodate both southern hemisphere (Australian) and northern hemisphere (European and North American) university vacation periods.
