Content Unit avaiable to undergraduate UWA students wishing to spend Semester 2 2017 studying at Bogor Agricultural University, West Java, Indonesia as part of ACICIS Study Indonesia's inaugural Agriculture Semester Program. This study option will be of particular interest to Agricultural Science, Natural Resource Management and Environmental Science students, though students from other majors are also welcome to take part. No background in Indonesian language is required by participants.

This program allows students to take units in a number of internationally accredited study programs at Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), including units in agribusiness, agronomy and horticulture, plant protection, forestry, food science and technology, and animal production technology. With classes taught in English, from an Indonesian perspective, students will be well-placed to become leaders in international agricultural development with a solid understanding of the food security and resource management challenges facing Indonesia and the Indo-Pacific region. Students are also able to undertake a professional practicum placement (internship) at an Indonesian host organisation to complement their formal studies. Host organisations will likely include global research organisations, local and international NGOs and agricultural production companies
