“Having recently retired, I wanted to keep my brain active. I am interested in birds, so I chose to study ornithology, which then let to a Master of Environmental Management.
“When I first enrolled, I completed the STUDY LINK subject ‘Writing at University’ which was invaluable in preparing me for writing assignments, referencing and using Endnote.
“The online and part-time education offered by Charles Sturt University (CSU) suited me – the modules and assessment criteria were well explained, and the Library facilities were excellent. Having been in the hospitality industry for over 40 years, I prefer working at night. Studying at night is quiet, with no distractions.
“To someone considering study at CSU, I would say ‘do it’. The highlights of my course have been a three week field trip to Sturt Desert and three weeks in Cambodia, and I am now seriously considering doing a PhD.”
