Charles Sturt University

Charles Sturt University (CSU) is a dynamic and progressive university whose innovative approach to education has seen it quickly grow to become Australia’s largest non-metropolitan university. This growth can be largely attributed to its ability to identify opportunities arising from the changing needs of society, commerce and industry and provide courses accordingly. A critical shortage of rural pharmacists prompted CSU to introduce a pharmacy course in 1997. In 2001, when the first graduates entered the workforce, 31 out of 35 took positions in rural and regional areas. CSU is also contracted to provide education for the NSW Police Service and through its five faculties, delivers more than 400 courses to around 40,000 on campus and distance education students throughout Australia and overseas.

The rich history of research undertaken at these sites, including at least one breakthrough for world agriculture and the breeding of leading crops, has also resulted in growing demand for our knowledge on the international stage.

The regional location of the University contributes to its success in meeting student needs. It’s network of campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange and Wagga Wagga, along with smaller specialist campuses throughout Australia, offer a sense of space which has encouraged growth in the form of commercial enterprises and industry standard facilities. Physical distances have been overcome by harnessing telecommunications. Microwave transmissions link the campuses by video and telephone, and the internet allows worldwide delivery of distance education materials. As a result CSU transcends borders to offer courses throughout the world.

In addition, these regional locations offer a strong sense of community, combining major city facilities and services with great lifestyle advantages – nearby rivers and mountains, unpolluted air, lower cost of living and safety on campus.
