Studying at Charles Sturt University

At Charles Sturt University (CSU), our ethos is Yindyamarra Winhanganha – a Wiradjuri phrase meaning 'the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in'. Our students, academics, alumni and research help make the world a better place at local, regional, national and international levels.

We believe every single person has the ability to make a difference — to their community and to the world — and in doing so, enjoy a rewarding, exciting career.

So at the heart of what we do is prepare you to start or progress your career with the skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed — whether you’re taking your first step after school, coming to uni for the first time after working, or returning to finish your studies. We have more than 100 undergraduate courses to get you where you want to go.

When you study with CSU, you learn from and work with the best in the business. Our academics bring extensive professional experience to their teaching, and our courses are designed in consultation with industry so that you get the most contemporary thinking and develop the skills your industry needs. You’ll get hands-on experience in world-class facilities so you’re job-ready when you graduate. And our work placement programs have become renowned for linking students to professional connections that get them a foot in a door. Plus, with smaller class sizes, you’re never just a number; your lecturers know your name and you get personalised learning.

It all adds up to CSU being Australia's number one university for graduate employment. With 87.5 per cent of CSU graduates finding full-time work within four months of finishing their degrees,* you can be confident you’ll make a difference in your industry and community from day one. What’s more, CSU grads go on to earn the highest median salaries in Australia.* So, not only are you best placed to get your dream job — you’ll get well paid for it too.

CSU puts you in control of your learning. Our courses offer full-time or part-time options, and the choice to study entirely on-campus or a combination of on-campus and online. You can vary your study load to fit your degree around your life — whatever turns it may take — plus, we have several intakes every year, so you can start your study when you’re ready.
