Welcome University of New South Wales Students

CISaustralia is proud to support the University of New South Wales and their students. CISaustralia and UNSW signed a formal partnership agreement in 2014 and ever since have worked closely to send qualified UNSW 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 UNSW. 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 was a fantastic experience studying overseas. [The best part was] meeting new people, getting to know Barcelona, and most of all the experience of studying at a different college and from a different cultural perspective.

January in Barcelona, Spain

If you want an extremely high quality education in a vibrant and diverse city, then don’t hesitate.

July in Los Angeles, USA at UCLA

Go out and explore! There is so much to do in New York City, my list was and still is never ending! The people you meet on the program was one of the best parts of the trip! You really get to know each other, and really is lots of fun being with a group of like-minded people. Overall had lots of fun and learnt heaps! People were great, location was great, all around an unforgettable trip!

Industry Immersion Program – New York City, USA

Most rewarding experience. Loved studying in another country and actually living the lifestyle. Thank you for being so supportive through the whole experience, especially everyone in Italy. They were so welcoming from the moment we got off the plane.

July in Florence, Italy

Do it. It will be the best experience of your life. If you’re scared travelling alone or are second guessing leaving home for a long period of time, trust me, all those worries fade away when you’re there. There are so many friendly people and so much to see that the time will fly and you will find yourself at the end of the trip wanting to stay longer.

July in Los Angeles, USA at UCLA

Go for it!! Being able to travel and live in a country overseas allowed me to truly experience a whole new culture. Whether travelling with friends or by yourself, the people on exchange are so friendly and you will make lifetime friends.

July in Florence, Italy

It is an amazing opportunity and one of the best things I have ever done! Meeting so many amazing new people [was the best part of the program]. Take a tour of the Isle of Skye and climb as many mountains as you can!

July in Stirling, Scotland

Just do it!!! Best 3 weeks of my life and it’s completely worth the experience and friends that you make. Just go out and explore. That’s the best way to see everything. Get lost! And go watch a musical, it’s absolutely magical.

July in London, England

Just so amazing. [The best part was] meeting new people, indulging with new culture, and experiencing new experiences. It is a whole new experience that can challenge even the most outgoing person. It is an adventure and experience that has so many lessons to be learnt. Food is amazing by the way!

July in San Jose, Costa Rica

Wonderful experience!!! This surely is an amazing experience that helped me live a different life and grow as a person.

January in London, England

This is a very interesting and valuable experience and you can actually have fun while studying. Go to as many places as you can. You will be amazed by your travelling.

January in New York City, USA

Exploring Japan, it’s unique scenery and culture and trying all the delicious unique foods [was the best part]. It’s a very fufilling experience, especially if you haven’t solo travelled before. Tokyo is a very nice and safe city, the people are considerate and helpful. It may sometimes be awkward with the language barrier but non verbal communication almost always works… the teachers and staff are really nice and understanding and will give you advice for outside of class, making sure you have the best abroad experience as possible. It was a very enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
