CSU Live Testimonial

 Angus Rutherford

Angus Rutherford

Bachelor of Communication (Public Relations) / Bachelor of Business Studies

"It is shown repeatedly that the mixture of theoretical and hands-on learning offered to students at CSU enhances job prospects and career progression; an approach to learning I still benefit from in my professional life.

"I was taken from a scratchy understanding of public relations to a comprehensive knowledge of theory and industry. Undertaking the double degree, studying business alongside PR created balanced learning that helped complement each other professionally.

"I now work in an agency across a diverse range of clients and was employed full-time before I had finished my last semester of study.

"CSU also teaches students to be adaptable; a skill necessary to any PR professional. This is valuable to me in keeping with the changing social media landscape which, more and more, we find our clients demand as part of projects.

"Incorporation of Twitter, Facebook and digital video production are now commonplace for client proposals and CSU gives you the skills to communicate effectively through these channels.

"Studying at CSU really gives you the chance to get ‘stuck in’ by studying in an inclusive environment different to metro-based universities. You get to know your classmates and this vital skill of networking provides you with the perfect platform to launch into your career.
