Program Description:

Australian Consortium of In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS)

Development Studies Professional Practicum

ACICIS Study Indonesia is a not-for-profit consortium of universities, of which the University of Melbourne is one, that develops and coordinates high quality, in-country study options in Indonesia. These include short-term and semester-long programs taught in English as well as Indonesian-language programs. 


What is the Development Studies Professional Practicum?DSPP

ACICIS’ Development Studies Professional Practicum (DSPP) provides an opportunity for students or early career professionals to gain valuable experience working in the field of international development in Indonesia. Host organisations cover a wide range of development sector interests and include monitoring bodies, research institutes, funding bodies, managing contractors, and advocacy groups. Key sectoral interests include: the environment, governance, transparency, poverty reduction, and gender equity.

The DSPP is designed for students who have no existing Indonesian language skills. Candidates with existing language skills are also welcome. All industry placements provide an English-language working environment. 


Structure and dates

The program runs from 3 January to 17 February, 2018.

The structure of the six-week program is as follows:

  • Two weeks of intensive Indonesian language classes (mornings) at Atma Jaya Catholic University, designed to give participants basic Indonesian language capacity;
  • A series of seminars and fieldtrips led by experts and practitioners from Indonesian development organisations;
  • A four-week supervised practicum placement designed to give participants an English-speaking professional experience within an Indonesian or international development organisation.
