Why Dubbo?

We all know west is best – that’s why Dubbo is the place to be.

It’s a place where cattle farms and cafés are within minutes of each other. Where the people are relaxed, friendly and welcoming – and when they ask how you’re going, they really mean it.

So if you’re thinking about studying at Charles Sturt University Dubbo – it’s a smart move. At our campus here, we have a tight-knit community of students and academics all working to improve people’s lives. It makes for a pretty dynamic place.

So, while you’re setting yourself up for an epic career – you also get a sweet lifestyle in the regions. You’ll live close to where you work. You won’t have to worry about traffic. And you’ll have time to spend on yourself and with your family. Here in Dubbo, you can truly achieve that work-life-study balance everyone talks about.
