Testimonials

CISaustralia gave me the opportunity to undertake a 4-week virtual internship in the USA. I did this with an immigration law firm based out of New York City. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who isn’t completely ready to pay and commit to an overseas internship… with the current pandemic happening at the moment, it was as if I was actually taking part in the internship there. The weekly cultural meetings always made me feel completely involved and I knew I could turn to CISaustralia for anything I needed. This has been an amazing experience.
