The ACICIS Virtual Indonesian Language Short Course offers intensive Indonesian language courses targeted at all levels from beginner to intermediate.

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 immersive introduction to the Indonesian language. The program consists of intensive Indonesian language tuition incorporating language classes and interactive cultural experiences. 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).
