Welcome University of Technology Sydney Students

CISaustralia is proud to support the University of Technology Sydney and their students. CISaustralia and the University of Technology Sydney have worked closely since 2016 and in 2022 signed a formal partnership agreement to send qualified UTS students abroad, on 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 UTS. 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 the best study experience that I have ever had. Meeting new people [was] amazing. Explore the city on your own, try lots of different foods, speak as much Spanish as possible, [and] stay with a host family. You will not regret it. Everything that I could have wanted and more.

July in Cusco, Peru

The best part was everything. Being able to be immersed in the culture, surrounded by the language, and given the opportunity to live in the country of choice. On the weekends I was able to travel to gorgeous cities and towns, take day trips, and overall enjoy myself independently, and with friends. I loved every shared experience I was able to have. Do it if you have a passion for the country, for travel, for self-discovery. This was the best experience of my life, I want to do it all over again.

July in Florence, Italy

Do it, it’s a incredible experience. Being abroad and learning in a completely new environment [was the best part].

July in Florence, Italy

Be open to adjusting to diverse work environments and communication you may not be used to. You will gain self awareness and expand on so many skills with a positive attitude.
