ACICIS has been running since 1994, and offers a huge choice of study programs in Indonesia– they’re probably one of the most straightforward ways to study in Indonesia. They handle the visa application process and also provide in-country pastoral support for students, including help finding accommodation, personal safety, and cultural excursions. While you’re studying in-country, you’ll remain enrolled in your home university. Airfares, visa-related costs, accommodation, travel insurance, spending money and local transport are all you need to worry about.
