Charles Sturt University is the largest regionally-based university in Australia, enrolling nearly 46,000 students from across Australia and more than 120 countries around the world. Our courses are delivered through a range of modes to support the professions regionally, domestically and internationally.

Our campuses in the vibrant regional cities of Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Canberra, Dubbo, Goulburn, Orange, Parramatta, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga serve the distinct needs of regional communities from northern New South Wales to central Victoria. Study Centres in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane provide on-campus education to international students in a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs. We also deliver programs internationally in collaboration with leading partner institutions in Europe and Asia, as well as through distance education.

We remain the number one Australian University for graduate employment outcomes for undergraduate students. We remain number one in not only Indigenous enrolments, but more importantly, Indigenous completions. This means we produce more Indigenous graduates than any other Australian university. We are proud of our students and the impact they are having on their chosen profession. From veterinary surgeon to school teacher – we are delivering the professionals our regional communities need and our regions are stronger for it.

Our research is world class – it is impactful in many ways. It supports communities, industries and global populations. The University’s researchers work in consultation and collaboration with end-users, industry, the professions and communities for the public good. We believe in making a difference and this is evidenced through our research outputs across many disciplines, including agricultural science, horticultural production, food and wine sciences, crop and pasture production, veterinary science, animal production, education, curriculum and pedagogy, environmental science, applied ethics, philosophy, religious studies, criminology, nursing and marketing. In 2018, Australia’s national research evaluation framework, Excellence in Research Australia (ERA), assessed 17 of CSU specific research fields as being at world class or above, with two fields receiving the highest possible ranking.  In addition, in the inaugural National Engagement and Impact Assessment in 2018, our research in Biological Sciences, Agricultural and Veterinary Sciences, Studies in Human Society, Indigenous Studies and Studies in Creative Arts and Writing was independently assessed as having high impact, demonstrating the focus we have on achieving impactful research for our communities and industries.

We are a university of the land and people of our regions. Our ethos, a Wiradjuri phrase, yindymarra winhanganha, meaning the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in, embodies our drive to deliver on our objectives of successful graduates and vibrant regional communities while ensuring we develop a strong university built on a capable, agile workforce.

Our four guiding values support our aspirations to be Insightful, Inclusive, Impactful and Inspiring. These values are the principles that guide our decision-making and underpin our ways of working. As a university, we strive to understand people and the world, embracing our differences and recognising the strength and value of working together. We aim to make a difference in society through the work we do and lead for a bright and sustainable future.
