Welcome Swinburne University of Technology Students

CISaustralia is proud to support Swinburne University of Technology and their students. CISaustralia and Swinburne University signed a formal partnership agreement in 2015 and ever since have worked closely to send qualified Swinburne 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 Swinburne. 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.

DO IT! I will happily talk about this trip to anyone who will listen. Absolutely amazing time, everyone was so nice, we all had great fun.

The program was amazing and would recommend it to anyone studying Japanese or interested about Japan. [The best part was] learning Japanese in a Japanese classroom environment and through a Japanese perspective. Do your best to adapt to the customs [and] encourage yourself to talk to other Japanese people. They are very friendly and will try to help you to the best of their ability. Overall, have fun, learn a lot and have an amazing experience. Japan is absolutely amazing.
