The twin cities of Albury-Wodonga straddle the border of New South Wales and Victoria. Bathurst is a modern city and is also Australia's oldest inland settlement. Wagga Wagga, the largest inland city in New South Wales, is midway between Sydney and Melbourne.
Charles Sturt University has three campuses: Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, and Wagga Wagga. The university prides itself in providing students with a head start in the employment market, through practical components in some courses, industry involvement in developing curricula, and long-standing cooperative associations with industry. The Wagga Wagga campus is located in the heart of agricultural territory. The Bathurst campus has a strong reputation in its communication major as a destination for study abroad due to its strong reputation in the field. Courses in many other areas are also available. Please note that Semester 1 at CSU is typically from February-June and Semester 2 is from July-November. For additional information about this university please visit the CSU website.
