Charles Sturt University has a proud history of providing courses and graduates that help communities – especially in regional Australia – to grow and flourish.
The University’s strong links to industry connect students with relevant, real-world experience and experts to support learning throughout their courses.
This focus on combining practical knowledge with quality learning and teaching makes Charles Sturt graduates some of the most employable in the country, evidenced by the University’s outstanding results in the 2021 edition of the Good Universities Guide, registering five star ratings for graduate salary (median salary of $65,000) and full-time employment (87 per cent of undergraduates are in full-time employment within four months of completing their course).
Charles Sturt boasts an outstanding track record of enrolling and graduating students from Indigenous, low socio-economic, and rural and remote backgrounds.
The university offers courses across science, business, justice, behavioural sciences, education and arts, and is proudly achieving world-standard outcomes across a wide range of research fields.
Additionally, in 2021, the University is very proud to welcome its first cohort of students to study the Joint Program of medicine being offered in partnership with Western Sydney University.
Students have flexibility in how they study with Charles Sturt: on-campus in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Canberra, Dubbo, Goulburn, Orange, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga, or at one of Charles Sturt’s study centres in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
The University also has a strong reputation as Australia’s most experienced online university and the nation’s online university of choice, according to statistics from the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Higher Education Statistics.
At the heart of Charles Sturt’s approach to education is the Wiradjuri phrase yindyamarra winhanganha – ‘the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in’.
Charles Sturt embraces diversity, nurtures individual growth, and values economic, social and environmental sustainability.
