Cross-institutional learning

The best way to study subjects you can't get at your current uni.

This is a great uni hack. Study an area you're passionate about with us and you could receive credit towards your degree!

You don't need to relocate to a Charles Sturt campus either. The majority of our subjects can be studied online – so it's up to you when and where you learn.

You'll also have access to our fantastic services and support, so you'll definitely feel like part of the Charles Sturt family.
