Even if you're currently studying at another university or at TAFE, you can still study a subject or course at CSU - and have that count towards your current degree.
The cross institutional study scheme allows you to undertake a unit of study at CSU that may not be offered at the university in which you are currently enrolled.

Cross-institutional study Admission Codes
To browse CSU subjects, view our online Handbook (although be aware that not all subjects are available in all sessions.)
When applying for cross institutional study, the subject code should be entered into the strand or major field. You may need to attach a cover letter containing this information if you wish to study more than one subject.
If you are not seeking cross institutional credit and just want to pick up additional subjects you don't need to worry about the criteria set out above. By choosing to study a single subject you can focus on an area that especially interests you.
If studying on campus is not convenient for you, there's always the option to study by distance education - so no matter where you are, you can combine your current education with cross institutional study at CSU.
