What’s different about a Law degree at CSU? With a focus on rural, regional and remote issues and Indigenous Australian content you can learn and practice in communities that need it most. Staff and Industry highlight the importance of making an impact in our regions.
Working full time and having three kids meant that Erin needed to find a flexible law degree that she could study online at times that suited her. When she got those ‘ah ha’ moments at residential school, it confirmed she was in the right place at CSU.
Miriam knew she wanted to study Law, both for professional development as a manager and to pursue her interest in court appointed mediation. As a leader in online education, CSU offered her the chance to study at her own pace and work towards fulfilling her dreams.
What attracted me to the NSW Police Force was the impact a police officer can have on a community, the variety of people they can encounter during a shift and the many different departments within the NSW Police Force.
I looked at a number of factors when considering my study options. I work full-time in the field of tertiary education – I actually work for CSU as a general staff member – so flexibility was very important. CSU also had a reputation for high quality online learning which was vital for me.
I chose to study CSU’s Bachelor of Laws because I am passionate about law and justice. I also wanted a course that I could study online and still live in my hometown of Young with my family and friends. Growing up in a rural and regional area I was drawn to the Bachelor of Laws as it is the only law course with a special focus on rural and regional issues. I have always dreamt of becoming a rural lawyer and this course is making it a reality.
I am looking for a career change to pursue my passion rather than just doing full-time work. The course is not only providing me with the study and knowledge I need, but opportunities for volunteer work and exposure to looking at the legal system in action.
Be inspired by some of our recent graduates as they share their experiences about studying Terrorism and Security Studies, Leadership and Management (Policing and Security) and the Associate Degree in Policing Practice at their CSU graduation day.
Join the NSW Police Force and make a difference. Charles Sturt University (CSU) runs the Associate Degree in Policing Practice (ADPP) for the NSW Police Force. At our Academy in Goulburn you will learn the skills you need to become a police officer.
The degree was a prerequisite for the role of detective / investigator and it has given me better tools to use in my current position. I learned a lot about conducting research, particularly on the internet and other sources.
