Expressions of Interest (EOI) have been sent to Charles Sturt University eligible international students to apply for the NSW International Student Arrivals Pilot Plan.
The pilot plan is a joint undertaking between the Australian and NSW governments, Study NSW and all NSW universities and aims to see 500 fully vaccinated students return before December.
Only a small number of Charles Sturt students will be able to return under the pilot plan, with priority given to continuing students who require practical or laboratory-based study activities in NSW to complete their studies.
If you are not eligible for the pilot plan, please be assured that Charles Sturt will continue to provide remote and online learning options for our students overseas for as long as that is required. While the pilot will initially only bring a small number of international students back to Australia, it's an important milestone that will lay the foundation for the safe return of more students in the future.
If you would like to know more about the Pilot Plan, please read our Frequently Asked Questions website.
