2. Hands-on learning

At CSU, getting a degree is about so much more than learning from a textbook. Most of our undergraduate degrees give you the chance to complete hands-on learning activities from the first year of your course. You could work in clinics, laboratories and studios on campus, undertake workplace learning in industry, or complete projects in the community to give you a real taste of life in your chosen career from the very start. When you graduate, you will be familiar with the professional environment and ready to make your mark on your industry.

3. Student support

You will receive the support you need every step of the way through your degree at CSU. CSU offers services that help you develop your skills for university study, STUDY LINK subjects to help you brush up in particular areas, and Pathway programs, such as the Diploma of General Studies, to help you get into university. You can also access personal support services, like counselling or equity grants.

4. Social life

There is never a dull moment on campus at CSU. The fun starts at Orientation Week, with a range of social activities designed to help you meet your first uni friends. Throughout the academic year, you will be able to attend themed parties, trivia nights, catch live bands or join club on campus so you can always find great activities to help you make the most of uni life. CSU offers the widest range of university-managed accommodation of any university in Australia, and if you choose to live on campus, you will quickly make friends and live just a short walk from your classes and campus facilities.

5. Country lifestyle

CSU's main campuses are located in some of Australia's fastest-growing regional centres. The cost of living is lower than capital cities, but the facilities, lifestyle and community atmosphere are second to none. Our campus cities offer great restaurants and shopping, exciting sporting competitions, and friendly, welcoming communities. You can get involved volunteering for a local organisation and meet great people from all walks of life. There are spectacular landscapes, and wineries, snowfields and fishing or bushwalking locations are just a day trip away.
