The Council of International Student Australia (CISA) is the national peak student representative organisation for international students studying at the postgraduate, undergraduate, private college, TAFE, ELICOS and foundation level. CISA was inaugurated on Wednesday July 7, 2010 at the University of Tasmania, Hobart through the joint efforts of the National Union of Students (NUS), Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations (CAPA) and the Australian Federation of International Students (AFIS) to form a unified voice for all international students.

The Indian Student's Club

We as a group aimed at assisting the International students through different platforms and also through our experiences as an International Students in South Australia. In the past, we have organized various networking and community welfare events to bridge the gap between professional and cultural aspects required by International students to acquire internships or professional work experience. We are always striving hard for the welfare of International Students of Indian origin and for that we are supported by The Indian Consul General, Sydney, the Universities, Colleges, TAFE and different government departments.
