Starting at CSU

University Life will differ greatly to high school. There's a lot more to manage than just getting to class on time.

 
Starting at university is likely to be a highly exciting but sometimes stressful experience. You will need to manage moving to a new city, making new friends, cooking for yourself, doing the laundry, managing study and maybe even a part-time job.

From school to uni

Being a student at uni is very different to being a school student. Suddenly you get a taste of that independence you always wanted. With increased independence comes increased responsibility, so you'll find that more will be expected from you, both in terms of study and looking after yourself.

What will it cost?
