Choose Your Course

Course Load: 1 course

  • Depending on your Australian university, you may refer to “courses” as “subjects” or “units”.
  • Each course/subject/unit you undertake on a CISaustralia program overseas is designed to be a full-time, semester course that has been condensed to fit into an intensive, short-term program. As such, for any 1 course you study abroad, you should receive the credit points for 1 full-time course/subject/unit at your Australian university.
  • Many universities work off of a 1-for-1 equivalency (1 course abroad = 1 course in Australia), but ultimately credit approval is the decision of your faculty and Australian university.
  • CISaustralia strongly recommends that you have any overseas courses pre-approved for credit before you depart for your program. Some documentation that may be useful are the course outline/syllabus, program overview, and the contact hours.
  • Although you will only take one course on the July program, it is best to get 2-3 courses approved by your university before you go overseas. This gives you some flexibility. Why not consider opting for an interesting elective if your degree allows?
  • Your CISaustralia Program Advisor can assist with any questions or details your university needs to make a decision.

Location

Paris is known for its dense cultural and artistic network. Museums, architecture, history or music – even the town design has stories to tell and is surrounded by myths and anecdotes. With more than 80 million foreign visitors per year and 35 UNESCO world heritage sites, France, and particularly Paris, is THE worldwide tourism destination for its culture and its gastronomy. Studying in Paris means enjoying a unique lifestyle as well as an intellectually stimulating educational experience.

Paris’ museums are endless, with enormous famous collections, and small charming galleries, each with their own set of curiosities and stories. Hundreds of theatres throughout the city add to its illustrious reputation as a cultural center, offering world-class theatrical, ballet, and opera performances. From classic French music, to famous books converted to musicals, to uniquely Parisian comedies, the theatre in Paris is a must-see.

History is around every corner and under every cobblestone in Paris, from the most important tourist attractions to the old cafe on the corner. There are few places in the world where the modern convenes with the ancient in such a rich and authentic way. This city has witnessed it all, you will find the ruins of ancient Roman baths, the flamboyant opulence of the Napoleonic era, the vestiges of the French Renaissance, the glorious beginnings of the Art Deco style and its buildings. Streets stand as evidence today of all these historical events. Whether you’re an architecture connoisseur or not, the sheer beauty, elegance, and intricacy of these endless styles and designs are sure to impress and inspire.

The city is world-famous for its cuisine and offers up nearly any type of food that you can imagine — and many that you can’t! You can savour steaming hot, authentic Chinese and Cambodian cuisine in the 13th neighbourhood, or delicious treats for people on a budget in the Montmartre neighbourhood or the Latin Quarter. Of course, don’t miss out on French classics like a juicy steak frite with a lovely glass of wine!

Paris’ unique urban layout is divided into 20 neighbourhoods, each with its own unique character, ranging from downtown hustle and bustle to cosy residential streets and everything in between. The popular Marais combines unique Renaissance architecture with great shopping. The fun vibes of the Latin Quarter make a great place for students and young travelers to hang out. The popular but unmissable Champs Elysées is often described as the Times Square of Paris. Paris’ winding streets and alleyways offer unique squares, neighborhoods, residential areas, hidden cafes, and independent boutique shops around every turn. It’s up to you to discover them all!
