It's your study, so it's your choice.

When you enrol as a student at Charles Sturt University, your educational adventure all comes down to you.

With more than 350 courses to choose from, six campuses located across regional New South Wales, flexibility to study on campus or online, and the option to take on full-time or part-time study.

Go full-time or part-time – it's totally up to you.

To make time spent at university a success, our learning framework needs to fit your lifestyle as much as you need to fit in with exams or assignments deadlines.

You can vary your study load to fit your course around your life — whatever turns it may take. Charles Sturt accepts student intakes every year, so you can start your study when you're ready.

We are everywhere.

Charles Sturt University has six main campuses to choose from located in regional Australia.

We also have study centres in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, partnerships with other educational organisations like TAFE, plus several international partner locations around the world.

Our network of campus locations, teaching facilities, industry partners and community links make Charles Sturt University the place to be to get where you want to go.

We know that not everyone is the same, so take your pick: on-campus or online. Are you:

  • a busy professional working 9-5 wanting to build existing knowledge,
  • naturally curious and wanting to learn about your secret passion,
  • looking for something part-time that will slot in with a busy lifestyle, or
  • someone that fits an entirely different profile altogether?

We're guessing you fall into the last option: everyone is different.

That’s why Charles Sturt has developed flexible learning options to cater to all types of people.

Our courses give you the flexibility to study on-campus or online. You'll learn from the same subject experts, using the same course material. Best of all, you're on the way to making your study ambitions become a reality.

Imagine your future career. Now come and get it.

That industry might be in wine sciences. Or, a career working with animals as a veterinarian or vet nurse.

You may see yourself as a corporate success, or communications and media strategist.

Then there's also engineering, environmental science, social work, library studies, computing, midwifery, medical science, dentistry, policing, law, security, psychology, science, teaching and more.

We have more than 350 courses to study on campus, most with an online option. It's a sea of subjects, topics and courses that give you lots of possibilities.

But perhaps best of all, you won't be left swimming once you graduate.

Our focus on workplace learning gets you away from the textbooks and into hands-on learning. Hands-on learning with industry is an integral part of our teaching strategy.

Not only will you have the practical experience to include on your resume, but you'll have made professional contacts in your field that can help build your network - and improve your job prospects.

That's why Charles Sturt is number one for graduates getting jobs.
