Centres and organisations

Charles Sturt University is a community minded organisation with strong links to industry, government, and other educational organisations. Our courses are developed in collaboration with industry representatives to ensure the skills our graduates acquire meet industry needs.

Charles Sturt may be the largest inland university in Australia, with students from across Australia and around the world, but it is our sense of community in the cities in which the university is located that sets us apart.
