Welcome University of Western Australia Students

CISaustralia is proud to support The University of Western Australia and their students. CISaustralia and UWA signed a formal partnership agreement in 2022 and have worked closely to send qualified students abroad since 2016, 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 UWA. 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! And make the most of the whole experience, don’t let a day go to waste. Making friends for life through the program and being able to explore Barcelona with them [was the best part].

January in Barcelona, Spain

The best part of my program was being able to simultaneously learn about and visit some amazing cities. It gave me a greater appreciation for the sites that we visited and it was so much fun to share it with other students… thank you so much to everyone from the team at CISaustralia who helped to put the trip together 🙂

January in Italy, France, the Netherlands and Czech Republic

You won’t regret it! The people I met [was the best part]! Get out and explore as much as possible!

July in Los Angeles, USA at UCLA

The best part was the work I got to do as part of my internship, though the people I got to meet is a really close second. Don’t be scared, if you want to do it go for it! You’ll have a lot of fun meeting new people and new experiences.

Intern in New Zealand

Program was really well planned and we learnt a lot. My favourite part was coming up with our own products and business ideas in various classes and brainstorming their viability. The teachers were very encouraging.

July in Paris, France

[The Site Director] was amazing and showed us more than we could ask for. Definitely went above and beyond her job scope. Overall a smooth process from start to finish.

French Language in Noumea, New Caledonia

I thoroughly enjoyed my internship experience. I was able to gain much valuable technical knowledge in my field and build on the foundations of what I’ve learned at University. On top of this, I gained many important transferrable skills such as cross-cultural awareness, self-efficacy, communication and time management skills. I’d highly recommend a virtual internship with CISaustralia to anyone looking to strengthen their resume and gain valuable skills and experiences.
