  • Admission information

    Students must have a recognised vocational qualification at AQF Certificate III or above, or equivalent, and a minimum of three years relevant experience. A Certificate IV in Workplace Training & Assessment (BSZ98) or a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAA40104 or TAE40110) does not count as a vocational qualification for entry purposes.

    Students who hold a Diploma of Teaching (Technical) or a three year teaching diploma outside the VET sector are also eligible to apply.

    See standard CSU admission criteria

  • Cost of study

    Fees are relevant for 2016 only and are subject to change in future years. Tuition fees quoted do not include the Student Services and Amenities Fee.

    In some instances a tax deduction may be claimed for self education expenses. Please seek independent qualified taxation advice.

    Tuition costs
    Commonwealth supported place

    You will make a student contribution (formerly HECS) towards the cost of your tuition fees. Commonwealth supported places may be limited for this course.

    Options:

    1. Defer your payment using a HECS-HELP loan, which is repaid through the taxation system once your income reaches a certain threshold
    2. Pay your student contribution fee up-front each session
    6240*Student contribution fee for your first year of study

    * This is an estimated fee for your first year of study based on a full-time study load (eight 8 point subjects). Should you be studying less than eight subjects in your first year, the fees would be decreased proportionally. This figure excludes the Student Services and Amenities fee. If your entire course is less than the equivalent of one year of full-time study, then the figure displayed is calculated as a percentage of a full-time study load e.g. 50%.

    • SSS021 - Transition to University Study
    • SSS026 - Developing Skills in Information Technology

    • SSS022 - Writing at University
    • SSS024 - Grammar Essentials for Writing at University
    • SSS030 - Academic English for Australian Tertiary Studies (International and English as Second Language Learners)
    • SSS031 - Academic Writing Skills (F2F Workshop)
    • SSS034 - Essay Writing – Style and Structure
    These subjects are particularly useful for those people who feel that they may have knowledge gaps and need a refresher because they have not studied for some time. STUDY LINK subjects are free for CSU Commonwealth-supported students as soon as they accept their offer of a place; small fees apply for others. They are non-credit bearing subjects.  A Subject Coordinator assists students with any questions. The full subject list and enrolment forms are on the STUDY LINK website.
  • Academic expectations

    For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.

    Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.

    Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).

    Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.

    Throughout their studies, CSU students have a responsibility to continue to develop skills in English Language, literacy and numeracy as appropriate to their discipline. This ongoing development will enable students to effectively participate in their course and graduate as competent professionals.
