Workplace learning

When you study with us, your sleeves will be firmly rolled up.

We believe in the importance of getting hands-on. At Charles Sturt, you'll build practical skills in your industry of choice. We're talking state-of-the-art labs or health clinics. Simulated nursing wards, courtrooms or classrooms. Out in the field in vineyards, farms or equine centres. Industry placements in cities or regional areas.

And having this experience makes a difference. It's why more Charles Sturt grads get jobs, and get them faster, than grads from any other university in Australia.

Get job-ready

Work placements improve your practical skills and confidence. They also connect you with potential employers. You'll gain real-world experience, using the same equipment your future workplace uses.

Many of our postgraduate degrees also allow you to bring your career into the classroom. You can create business or lesson plans, develop patient skills, or apply scientific discovery to your work.

You'll also build the professional connections that can be so important in getting a job.

Work with the community

Workplace learning gives you the chance to make a meaningful contribution to communities in Australia and overseas.

You can make a difference in:

  • hospitals
  • schools
  • business
  • not-for-profit organisations.

Apply your skills in nursing, teaching, accountancy, animal care, information technology and many other areas.

What businesses say

Industry has made it no secret that they love our grads.

Here's why, from one of the people who hire them,

My experiences with Charles Sturt University TV production students have been very successful. I find Charles Sturt students to be highly motivated, well informed and well trained in many aspects of TV. They are quite work-ready, and very keen to get into the industry. Channel Nine has employed dozens of Charles Sturt students over the past 15 years.
