Charles Sturt University

New South Wales, Australia

Charles Sturt University is Australia’s largest regional university. We're also the country's most experienced provider of online education.

Our history dates to 1895 and the establishment of a vocational farm at Bathurst designed to give rural people access to education. Over subsequent decades, agricultural and teaching centres were set up in Wagga Wagga and Bathurst, so individuals could improve their prospects and better serve their communities.

Charles Sturt University officially became a university in 1989. Today we have campuses in Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Canberra, Dubbo, Goulburn, Orange, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga. We also have specialist centres in Parramatta and Wangaratta. Find out more about our locations

Our campuses are home to state-of-the-art facilities in which students gain practical experience. They include the National Life Sciences Hub. Dedicated university research centres. Public medical, dental, wellness and community engagement centres. A farm. An equine centre. Television studios. Art galleries. A radio station. And a winery.

We have unique partnerships with a wide variety of organisations. They include TAFE providers, the NSW Police Force, the Diocese of Canberra and Goulburn, the NSW Department of Primary Industries, Commercial Radio Australia, the Islamic Sciences & Research Academy of Australia, and universities in China and Sri Lanka. We also have many partners around the world to enable our students to undertake international study experiences.

We are proud to be one of the top Australian universities for First Nations participation and graduation. And that participation is a key focus area for the university. We are also proud to be Australia's first official carbon neutral university.

Admission for international students is flexible, with specific requirements varying depending on your chosen program.
