I enjoyed the program so much. Meeting lots of amazing people and being able to experience the Scottish culture [was the best part]. [The program] offered lots of social events and excursions that were lots of fun and gave me opportunity to experience the cities of Scotland. [On-site staff] were very supportive and did their best to help everyone on their program. [The Site Director] also offered lots of advise on what activities were on and was willing to help at any opportunity. I met some amazing people and had the time of my life.

July in Stirling, Scotland

Excellent. I learnt new cultures. I met new friends from different parts of the world. I learnt a lot from the women there on how they [are] surviving their life.

Rural Community Development in Nepal

Go for it, the American culture is an easy fit for Aussies. The tutors are super engaging and LA is just a beautiful place to be. Loved every single minute of it. [The best part was] the excellent learning environment where I was challenged and found my passion for education reignited. I adored the independence offered and the ability to see the beautiful city of Los Angeles whilst studying.

January in Los Angeles, USA at UCLA Extension

What an amazing opportunity this was! To be able to put what I have learnt into good use. I have also met so many amazing life-long friends who I may have never met before this. All the business visits were amazing! What an experience it was to be able to see how all these businesses run! Being able to work with groups to combine our knowledge from university to find solutions for real life problems that are being experienced by real people [was the best part].

Industry Immersion Program – New York City, USA

If you are a hard worker and are looking to gain practical experience, then this program is for you! The projects that we got to work on were interesting and challenging. The entire experience (i.e. project work, business visits and excursions) was absolutely fantastic. A life-changing experience!

Industry Immersion Program – New York City, USA

Overall the program was very insightful, and I enjoyed every bit of it. I met some amazing people on the program who are now my good friends, made a lot of industry connections and visited some amazing places in New York. The individuals from CISaustralia who I was in contact with were all extremely helpful and welcoming. [The best part of the program was] working with/visiting multiple businesses, and gaining knowledge on the various forms of marketing from multiple businesses.

Industry Immersion Program – New York City, USA

The best part about the program abroad was meeting and making new life friends across the globe. MUST do’s are Griffith Observatory and to make sure to eat a lot of different food in LA, it’s amazing. Just go for it, even if you are afraid to be away from family or have doubts. You will not regret it and it is an experience of a lifetime.

July in Los Angeles, USA at UCLA

Go into it open minded and don’t be afraid to go by yourself because that’s the best way to make new friends and explore the cities in a way you can’t with friends and family.
