Academic Credit

Here at CISaustralia, we understand that for most students, gaining academic credit towards your degree in Australia is one of the most important elements to your overseas experience. If your chosen program relates to your studies, academic credit can often be awarded by your Australian university.

On average, over 98% of all CISaustralia students who participate in a study, intern or volunteer program are awarded academic credit towards their degree for their CISaustralia program. Our programs can be credited towards core or elective courses, or Work Integrated Learning (WIL) / experiential credits.

If you are interested in gaining academic credit for your program towards your degree, you should apply for pre-approved academic credit at your home university in Australia prior to departing on your program. For some students, the experience itself is the primary motivator; however, CISaustralia will work closely with every student to provide detailed academic counselling and guide you through this process.

You can find comprehensive information on any of our programs on our website, and once you’ve applied for a CISaustralia program, you’ll have a dedicated Program Advisor who will be able to provide any further information you need to go through the academic credit approval process!

CISaustralia has established formal partnerships with numerous Australian universities, allowing us to establish strategies for collaboration and work more effectively with each partner. We pride ourselves on having close relationships with university study abroad and global mobility offices, as well as faculty across Australia, and we’re here to help you communicate with your university.


Academic Credit Approval Process

  1. Complete your CISaustralia program application.
  2. Your personal CISaustralia Program Advisor will assess your application and eligibility.
    • We recommend lodging your application and associated documentation as early as possible to avoid delays and disappointment in missing application deadlines.
  3. Once you’ve been offered a place on your chosen CISaustralia program, your Program Advisor will provide you with information on what you need to do to begin arranging pre-approval for credit with your Australian university.
