Flexible study options

Choose when, where and how you study with CSU's range of flexible study options to help fit university study into your busy life.

You can also increase subject choices or study flexibility by studying a subject that is not offered at your campus by distance education.

Full-time or part-time study

Most students studying on campus are full-time. However, you can also choose to study many CSU courses part-time on campus or by distance education. Part-time study gives you the flexibility to work at the same time, or juggle additional personal commitments.

Defer your study

Deferring your offer means you'll delay starting your course for a period of time, usually 12 months. Deferment guarantees you a place in your selected course, but allows you some 'breathing space' between the rigours of the HSC and starting a new life at university. Deferment is available to all students, dependent on the course and conditions of the offer, but is not available for certain courses.

Mixed mode of study

On Campus Study OptionsOn campus students can increase subject choices or study flexibility by studying some subjects by distance education. For example, distance education can enable you to study a subject that is not offered at your campus of enrolment, or to fit in with your lifestyle and work commitments. Mixed mode also allows you to change between on campus and distance education study.
