ACICIS Study Indonesia

Published: 12 April 2018

ACICIS’ International Relations Program (IRP) is a semester-long program hosted by Parahyangan Catholic University (UNPAR), Bandung. Taught in English, this program provides students with a comprehensive understanding of international relations at regional and global levels, as seen from an Indonesian perspective, while developing necessary critical skills to enter the field of international relations.

Students take subjects taught in English at UNPAR’s Department of International Relations. These subjects cover a range of thematic areas within international relations, including: national politics, global issues, foreign policy, civil society movements, diplomacy, regionalism, and security and counter-terrorism.

The IRP also offers students the option to undertake a professional placement, which enables students to put their studies into practice and gain a real-world experience outside the classroom. Students are placed at local community-based organisations and are given the opportunity to develop important skills in administration, research and reporting, and project management.

The IRP has been designed for students with no existing Indonesian language skills; however, students with existing language skills are welcome to participate.
