"I chose to study at Charles Sturt University (CSU) because the learning hours are tailored perfectly for those working full-time. All the resources and tutorials are online, which makes it very convenient to attend class from the comfort of home and saves me a lot of time in my busy schedule. I have found it easy to connect with other students and everyone is very friendly. Although we’ve never seen each other we have exchanged email addresses and have organised a time to meet face-to-face. We also made time to arrange study sessions before our exams and to support each other with our assignments.
"My lecturer has been very supportive. He responds to questions and queries almost immediately. He is dedicated and passionate about what he is teaching. At one point during my studies I was planning on deferring and I expressed my concerns to him – he was very motivating and offered me a useful list of resources to aid me in achieving my goals. This helped me remain focused and persist with my studies. The willingness of the staff at the Islamic Sciences and Research Academy (ISRA) in helping me achieve my goals is incredible.
"I would recommend studying at CSU as it is multicultural, proactive and fun. The ISRA is very small but filled with enthusiastic teachers and students who have created a wonderful learning environment."
