Want to boost your finances?

You want the best education, but it’s got to be affordable. We get that. With Charles Sturt University you can tap into more than $3 million in scholarships and grants. They make studying that bit easier for students just like you. Extra cash in your pocket means you won’t have to stress about course fees and textbooks.

Just ask Jacqui Sawer, who’s studying pharmacy: “I didn’t have the best academic skills, so didn’t think scholarships would be for me. I’ve never asked for help before but I decided to put my hand up so I can fulfil my goals. The scholarship gave me the funds to cover set-up and living costs, so I could concentrate on my learning.”

  • How will I get an offer to my Charles Sturt course?

    We get it. 2021 has been challenging for Year 12 students. Between lockdowns and disruptions to exams it’s been interesting. And we’re looking into how we can best support you getting into uni. We know that Year 12 final exams are an important entry assessment for school leaver students, and we’re not looking at making significant changes to admission assessments. To help create some certainty and give you the best possible start at uni, we’ve extended our Charles Sturt Advantage early offer program applications. You can apply now to help take some of the pressure off exams and, if you’re successful, you’ll get a guaranteed offer to study with us in 2022.

  • When will I receive an offer to my Charles Sturt course?

    If you’re keen to get an offer earlier – as early as October – make sure you apply for our Charles Sturt Advantage early offer program.

  • Will I be eligible for adjustment factors due to lockdown/exam disruptions?

    If you’ve been disadvantaged by the COVID-19 lockdowns and disruptions to HSC exams – let’s face it, what Year 12 student hasn’t? – you can apply for UAC’s Educational Access Scheme (EAS). Check your eligibility for UAC’s EAS and you might find that you qualify for adjustment factors if you can demonstrate circumstances beyond your control affected your study during Year 11 or 12.
