Gap Indonesia conducts study tours to Indonesia for Australian school students and school leavers. The team behind Gap Indonesia is also the team behind International Internships, which has been operating internship programs and study tours in Indonesia since 2005. We are a small organisation based in Melbourne with a passion for immersing ourselves in other cultures. For more information, visit www.gapindonesia.com or contact Nerida Thompson.
The Indonesia Uncovered Tour is for Year 11 and 12 students and will run from 28th November until 19th December 2015. Students who are completing Year 10 will be considered on a case-by-case basis. It is being run in partnership with:
• Universitas Islam Indonesia (Islamic University of Indonesia),
• BINUS University,
• Sumatran Orangutan Society, and the
• Orangutan Information Centre.
We are proud of our well-balanced, educational and fun itinerary, which sees a different focus in each location.
• Yogyakarta - Indonesian language, culture and community development. Students will spend lots of time with buddies from a local university. The buddies will join many of the group activities such as visits to local temples, Mt Merapi and some great not-for-profits like Legal Aid and Friends of the Earth. The students can choose between the intensive language stream (20 hours of Indonesian language classes) and a general stream for those not so focused on the language. These two streams will do slightly different activities at times in Yogyakarta but will spend the majority of the time as one group.
• Jakarta - government and business. Students will witness the huge range of activities happening in Indonesia through visits to organisations such as the Australian Embassy, ANZ, the Indonesian Biodiversity Foundation, the Indonesian Stock Exchange, the Human Rights Working Group and much more.
• Sumatra – environment & sustainability. The students will trek through the rainforest to learn about the issues facing Indonesia's environment and see orangutans in their natural habitat. They will also volunteer with a local environmental NGO, to which some of the program fee is donated.
Our Indonesia team includes Jack McNaught, a former university lecturer in Australia with years of experience managing groups in Indonesia; and Frida Komesaroff who is also a fluent Indonesian speaker with years of teaching experience and who ran the Indonesia Uncovered Tour last year.
The program cost is $3,300 per student, which includes all accommodation, most meals, all internal transport in Indonesia, all costs for all activities (including entrance fees), language classes and lots of support both before and during the trip. More details about the fee and inclusions can be found at http://www.gapindonesia.com/program-details-indonesia-uncovered/
The Gap Bali program is a four-month program aimed at school-leavers. It will begin in the second half of 2016 and has an itinerary that allows for a certain degree of tailoring to individual interests.
The cost will be approximately $5,600 and will include all accommodation, some meals, transportation within Bali for scheduled activities, all costs for all activities, language classes and the facilitation of the teaching English position, the volunteer work and the internship. Visa support is also included. More details of the fee and inclusions can be found at http://www.gapindonesia.com/gap-bali/
Flexible School Tour Packages
Building on ACICIS Study Indonesia’s extensive experience as a provider of quality in-country language programs, the school tours are designed to provide high-school students of Indonesian language with an opportunity to learn through immersion in Indonesian everyday life. Flexible tour packages are offered for 5, 7, 10, 12 and 14 day durations based in Yogyakarta, Central Java. Tour itineraries are not fixed, rather schools will work with ACICIS’ Tour Program Officer to tailor an itinerary to suit their needs. Key tour components include:
The language classes are held at the Lembaga Bahasa (Language Institute or LB for short) of Sanata Dharma University, Yogyakarta. All language instructors are native speakers with extensive experience in teaching students at all levels of Indonesian language competency – from complete beginners to advanced students.
Students will also be provided with at least three hours per week of one-on-one tutorial work with a local university student tutor.
Field Trips and School Visits
Field trips include a variety of structured learning activities along with a number of general sight-seeing trips. Options include visits to Borobudur, Prambanan and Ratu Boko temples, art, dance, batik and cooking workshops, and a tour of Mount Merapi.
School visits can be organised to a Yogyakarta middle or high school and include a series of activities with the Indonesian students and teachers.
ACICIS has a comprehensive risk management plan for Yogyakarta that is regularly updated. ACICIS maintains offices in both Yogyakarta and Perth staffed 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday, and ACICIS personnel in Indonesia and Australia are available at any time in case of an emergency whilst tours are in progress.
Tours cost between AUD$1,042 and AUD$2,176 (land costs only) depending on the length of tour and size of the group.
ACICIS has a tailored poster and flyer for its school tour services available for download on the ACICIS website. We are happy to supply you with printed copies of these materials for display around school or to hand out to students if required. Please just let us know if you would like us to send you some of these materials.

The ACICIS Study Indonesia Program is now receiving applications for the Indonesia from the ground up! tour scheduled to take place in July 2014. The closing date for applications is May 1, 2014. Application forms for the tour can be downloaded here.
The 13-day study tour is designed for principals, senior school administrators, and liberal arts teachers – teachers of history, geography, arts, business – those who have little or no Indonesian language skills. Taking participants from the bustling capital of Jakarta to laid-back Bali, the tour balances academic and hands-on experiences at local schools, universities, NGOs, traditional villages and historic temples. You can read about a previous tour in July 2012 and participants’ experiences here, and view some promotional videos here.
Past participants have reported the tour to be “An exceptional experience. A well thought out and meticulously planned program”, and “Probably the best in- country study program I have experienced.”
There is a specially tailored flyer for this program available for download on the ACICIS website. We are happy to supply you with printed copies of these materials for display or distribution around your school or workplace.
If you have any questions regarding the tour, or any of our other programs, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the ACICIS Secretariat either by email at email@example.com or by phone on 08 9360 6254.
