Welcome Monash University Students

CISaustralia is proud to support Monash University and their students. CISaustralia and Monash University signed a formal partnership agreement in 2014 and ever since have worked closely to send qualified Monash students abroad, on many different programs to many different locations. This partnership enables students greater access to our overseas programs and ensures they have the best possible experience abroad! We are very proud of our close and long-standing partnership with Monash. We take great pleasure in providing high-quality customer service and in supporting both students and academic staff to develop long-term sustainable programs abroad, which are most importantly for academic credit.

I’ve had such an amazing time… So great to be able to live in London for a whole 8 weeks and immerse yourself in British working culture. I saw so many landmarks and culture during the weekends. I made some fantastic friends on the program too. It was the perfect length of time to gain an insight to what travelling vs. living in the city was like and will definitely influence my decisions on future travel or overseas work experience.

Intern in England

CISaustralia assisted Monash Abroad in developing its first office-owned mobility program… The expertise in program development by CISaustralia was of great importance. [They] provided the perfect level of support [and] understanding. I am so very happy that I used a program provider in general and CISaustralia specifically to assist with coordinating logistics of the program. The program ran seamlessly and was very low stress. I would absolutely recommend using CISaustralia to assist with coordinating an overseas program.

Go for it! Make sure you go for the longest amount of time you possibly can, you want regret it! [The Site Director] was outstanding. Her friendly approach allowed me to feel very comfortable in a foreign environment. I had an excellent experience [and] I learnt an immense amount and made some very good friends and business contacts.

Intern in England

Just do it! You’re always told by people that studying abroad is the best experience you’ll ever have and you wonder how true that can actually be until you do it yourself. You realise that the people you meet and the places you see is what makes your journey worthwhile. It truly is one of the best experiences one can have. Thank you for all the support and the amazing experience. It was life-changing!
