RMIT University strongly encourages students in journalism to attend the ACICIS Journalism Professional Practicum (JPP) . The ACICIS (PRON: ah-chee-chus) JPP runs for six weeks in Indonesia, including a two-week intensive Indonesian language study and industry-led seminars at Atma Jaya University, followed by a four-week supervised industry placement. The program runs from early January to mid-February each year.
For the past few years students have been supported in their internships with funding from the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan (NCP).
RMIT students who have done the ACICIS program have gone on to work in major news outlets in Australia and overseas. All claim that that the ACICIS program helped them stand out to employers.
