Program Description:

This program will provide you with the opportunity of studying international relations for a full semester in Indonesia. Offered through the Australian Consortium for In-Country Indonesian Studies (ACICIS), the program is taught by one of Indonesia’s foremost international relations departments, located at Parahyangan Catholic University (UNPAR) in Bandung, West Java. Taught in English, the program will provide you with an understanding of international relations at regional and global levels, as seen from an Indonesian perspective. 

As of 2016, students can nominate to undertake an International Relations Program (IRP) Professional Placement Module as part of their semester-long program. The professional placement involves working in a participating workplace two days per week during the semester, and is worth 3 credits towards the semester-long IR Program.
