    • "I enrolled in this course after completing the TAFE Diploma of Library and Information Services. I was looking for an institution with a good reputation for delivering higher education in Library and Information Studies. My TAFE teachers had a very high opinion of CSU and studying online was particularly suitable for me as I was already working in the industry. CSU was the obvious choice."

    • "I wanted to study online because I was a stay-at-home mum looking to engage my brain and hopefully finish studying by the time my kids went to school. I could not afford childcare and had no relatives to provide childcare, so having the option to study online was a big consideration. I chose CSU as it has a great range of courses and subjects and the School of Information Studies is the largest education provider in the Library and Information Services industry."

    • "This was my first time studying at a regional university. There was a very inclusive, practical, hands-on approach which really suited me personally. CSU is a great university at which to study and I cannot recommend it highly enough. To achieve a degree, you really must personally be ready to commit yourself. If you are, you will have every chance of success at CSU."

    • "I considered a number of options when selecting my course. I wanted to study online rather than having to attend classes and I was looking for a degree that would allow me to conduct research, hence my attraction to the Applied Research specialisation. CSU provided the ease of studying online, had the appropriate course on offer and the cost of study was also a factor."

    • "After 25 years of professional practice, I was looking to refresh my theoretical knowledge and experience and Charles Sturt University (CSU) provided me with this opportunity. The course had recognised credentials and was affiliated with the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and other professional organisations. CSU also provided a vision for me to connect past experiences with my future study plans. Further, I found the entry options attractive and flexible."

    • "I worked full-time while studying, with some study support from my employer. My study was relevant for my current role and added to my expertise. It also assisted with my plans for career development by keeping my skills current and relevant and offering a unique specialisation, which other librarians may not have. This ensured my skill set was meeting the current demands of the industry and I didn’t have to play catch-up with my industry peers."

    • "I was the first in my immediate family to graduate. Even though I was 56 years of age, my 78 year old mum was so proud. CSU is unique in that I could see many mature age students, like myself, working toward achievement of lifelong dreams. The rewards of facing challenges such as study are immense and deeply satisfying and the learning opportunities afforded apply at work as well as in my personal life."

    • “Studying at CSU, I enjoyed the sense of community. Studying via distance education can be an isolating experience, and many of the lecturers in the School of Information Studies encouraged us to form study groups, both online and in-person, in order to support one another. This enriched my study experience greatly, and I took advantage of the events and Facebook groups and the opportunity to form a consultative group."
