Student Equity provides access, advice, advocacy and support to university for students who have been educationally disadvantaged, including those from a rural or isolated region, low socio-economic background, or those entering under the Special Considerations for Admissions scheme.
Certain groups within our community are under-represented among university students. To overcome the disadvantages faced by these groups, CSU has developed programs to improve the access, participation, success and retention of students in these equity groups.
CSU's Student Equity Office assists students who may not have had the same opportunities to access education as other members of the community. These Equity groups include:
Have you been educationally disadvantaged in some way, and are seeking financial support to help you get into or complete your degree?
Equity Scholarships and grants can provide financial assistance:
CSU Access Schemes
CSU recognises that some in the community who, for reasons beyond their control, have not been able to compete equally during their education and preparation for university. CSU offers Special Consideration for Admission, which takes into consideration factors that may have impacted negatively upon their preparation for university study.

CSU's equity goal reflects the desire to embrace diversity on our campuses. We enhance the capacity of CSU to contribute to Australia's social, cultural, political and economic vitality and strength through actions which embrace the full diversity of the community and resulting in a student profile that fairly reflects that diversity.
This comprehensive study guide is designed for all students planning to study an undergraduate degree, whether they are school leavers completing Year 12 and applying through UAC / VTAC, or mature age students.
CSU's courses also offer diversity and flexibility. We offer courses through the Faculty of Arts, Business, Education and Science.
