The ACICIS Development Studies Immersion Program (DSIP) is a semester-long community development option hosted by Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogyakarta. The DSIP runs parallel to other ACICIS programs at UGM, but has the important distinction of an eight week community development field work module. The DSIP has been designed for students who have no existing Indonesian language skills. Candidates with existing language skills are welcome, however.
The structure of the program is as follows: A four-day ACICIS orientation, including language placement test. ACICIS will assist students in finding accommodation close to campus during orientation. An initial six weeks of intensive Indonesian language classes (102 hours in total) at UGM. Classes are held from Monday-Friday, from 9am to 3pm (inclusive of a daily two hour tutorial session). Students ARE NOT located in the field during this period. A series of English language lectures by local practitioners and experts in the Development Studies field. Seminars are scheduled for Friday mornings or afternoons. A two-month development studies module designed and managed by local students in partnership with UGM’s Institute for Research and Community Services (LPPM). Students will depart for the field at the start of week seven (of the14 week semester). The field placement is fulltime, with students allocated a total five days leave for the eight week period. Additional leave is granted for the attendance of the seminar series.
Study can be accredited to university degrees (depending on university guidelines).
