Before applying to study, you should read the available online course information. Make note of the Admission code as you will need this to complete your application.
Once you have decided on your course, you can apply online.
Applying online is the preferred method. If you are unable to apply online, you can download an Application for Admission form [PDF]
Applications for distance education and postgraduate courses are accepted all year round. We will determine your eligibility for admission and hold your application for consideration into the next available intake.
CSU's academic calendar has 3 sessions - March, July and November. CSU courses offered in Australia will be available in these sessions. Courses offered at CSU northern hemisphere campuses or with our international partners, may also be offered over 3 terms - January, May, August.
Applications received after the closing date will only be considered if courses do not have a residential school prior to the course start date and where places remain available.
We can only begin assessment of your application when all required supporting documentation has been received. Documentation such as verified copies of transcripts and awards from previous study; proof of citizenship or residency if you weren't born in Australia. You can upload and attach these documents as you complete your online application for admission. If you need to post in these documents you need to do it immediately as late receipt will delay the consideration of your application.
