Welcome Murdoch University Students

CISaustralia is proud to support Murdoch University and their students. CISaustralia and Murdoch University signed a formal partnership agreement in 2015 and ever since have worked closely to send qualified Murdoch students abroad, on many different programs and 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 Murdoch University. 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.

It’s hard to single out one best part! The course was incredibly informative but also engaging. The placement was perfect because of the beautiful country and kind people. The activities were also super fun and planned perfectly. This has been my first time travelling completely alone and the process was planned flawlessly to alleviate any stress or concerns. The course was amazing [and] I think there was a perfect amount of activities planned versus free time. The whole process was planned amazingly!

July on Vancouver Island, Canada

Being able to travel with the lecturers and get to know them personally [was the best part]. I was able to have some great discussions with them about their lectures and putting the key themes in an Australian context as we travelled between cities – I really liked this. Plus all of the lecturers were so great – not just personally, but the level of their knowledge and expertise was just superb. It was such a great pleasure to attend their lectures and spend time with them.

January in Morocco, Spain and France

Very happy. [The accommodation was] amazing. [The university was] fantastic. Our teacher was incredible. Class field trips were a fantastic way to learn. Had a wonderful time.

January in London, England

Do it. Don’t think twice. It is an amazing experience that you will only get to do once in a lifetime. Meeting new people from around the world and embracing the Costa Rican lifestyle [was definitely the best part].
