Welcome to Charles Sturt University
CRICOS: 00005F (NSW)
Charles Sturt University (CSU) is a national university providing excellence in educationfor the professions, strategic and applied research and flexible delivery of learning and teaching. Established in 1989 as a multi-campus institution, CSU has campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Canberra, Dubbo, Goulburn, Ontario in Canada, Orange, Parramatta, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga; CSU Study Centres in Sydney and Melbourne; and the Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security at Manly.
Pathway Programs in agricultural business and management and agriculture are offered at Wangaratta.
As a national university for the professions, CSU prides itself on providing practical, hands-on courses that ensure students graduate with the skills required to step into employment opportunities. The University offers state-of-the-art facilities on its campuses, from an online newsroom and fully-equipped multimedia and television production area to dental, podiatry and veterinary science clinics.
CSU degrees are accredited with relevant government and industry bodies, and these organizations work hand-in-hand with the University in the development of courses to ensure CSU graduates are industry-ready. CSU's new facilities include the state-of-the-art National Life Sciences Hub, a Simulation Centre at Bathurst Campus for paramedic and nursing students, and simulated classrooms equipped with Smartboards for education students. CSU graduates have the skills and practical experience to prepare them for careers in regional or metropolitan communities in Australia and internationally. We consider our regional, national and international roles to be integrally linked and mutually reinforcing.
As a vital member of our regions, we are committed to maintaining a course and research profile that meets the needs and supports the aspirations of our communities. The University's regional location enables it to make a distinctive national and international contribution in such fields as agriculture, education, allied health and land and water management. Graduates are encouraged to continue to live and work in regional areas, helping combat skills shortages in these locations. Over many years we have combined our learning resources, delivery systems and experience in multi-site delivery to enrol students from around the world, on campus and by distance education. Charles Sturt University in Ontario operates from modern facilities in Burlington, Canada, and we enrol international students offshore in a number of countries including China, Malaysia and Hong Kong. The University's success in attracting international students strengthens the programs it is able to offer its regional communities, while supporting our commitment to participating in the internationalization of higher education.
CSU has a strong research presence in its regional communities. It has established designated University Research Centres representing concentrations of research expertise that align with CSU's mission (the Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security; Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics; EH Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation; Institute for Land, Water and Society; Research Institute for Professional Practice, Learning and Education; Centre for Public and Contextual Theology and the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre). Research centres established within the Faculty structure include the Centre for Research into Complex Systems and the Centre for Inland Health. In addition, CSU leads one federally funded Collaborative Research Network project, the Excellence in Research in Early Years Education CRN and is a key partner in a second, the Murray-Darling Basin Futures CRN.
