International students

Gain an internationally recognised qualification with CSU at one of our vibrant regional campuses, or study online from the comfort of your own home - anywhere in the world!

You can also study accounting, business and information technology courses at a CSU Study Centre in Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

Browse through the tabs below for more information or visit our International website to discover more about an Australian university experience like no other.

Please note: if you choose to study online with CSU, the course study mode will not meet necessary requirements for granting Australian student visas.

There are minimum Academic and English Language requirements for admission to CSU courses. These requirements ensure that our students have the best chance for success. Minimum requirements can vary from country to country, so please take some time to review our entry requirements  before starting your application. If you cannot find the requirements for your country please contact us.

At CSU, we understand that you are making a financial investment in your future and we want to make sure that you receive the best value for money for your education. That’s why our students enjoy more affordable course tuition fees than other Australian universities, while still receiving a high standard of education.

Tuition fees are set for the duration of your course and don’t go up each year.

CSU Alumni receive a discount on fee-paying postgraduate courses – so if you study your bachelor’s degree with us, and decide to continue your studies at CSU, you could save 10 per cent off your postgraduate tuition.

Please note: whether you study on campus or online, textbooks and other items that you may be required to purchase during your study are not included in the tuition fees.

More information on tuition and other fees.

More information on fees for on-campus study in Australia.

Aside from course tuition fees, all students who choose to study on campus incur other fees such as accommodation, Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and other living expenses.

If you choose to study online, some subjects may require you to attend compulsory residential schools in Australia. Residential schools are held on campus in Australia for up to five days during certain sessions.

Please check the residential schools tab in the Course highlights section above (or your offer of admission if your application is successful) for more information on which subjects may have a residential school component.

Online courses for international students do not meet the requirement for an Australian Student Visa, therefore you will need to check that you can obtain an appropriate visa for any residential school session. For more information about visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. More information about residential schools can be found on our Future Students Hub.

CSU campuses offer a uniquely Australian living experience. Most of our campuses have accommodation on-site with many of the buildings nestled among gum trees with native wildlife like kangaroos and kookaburras sharing the space. Off-campus accommodation options can also be arranged.

Few universities in Australia can match the range of accommodation available at CSU’s campuses. Campus life offers all the facilities of a small village with community spirit, helping you to meet lots of new friends while living in a safe and secure environment.

Find out more about CSU’s accommodation options.

Whether you choose to study online or on campus, our international support services can make all the difference. From managing visa requirements to study support, and career advice, we’ve got you covered and our friendly staff will help make your university experience one you will never forget.

At CSU, we work with trained international recruitment agents in more than 40 countries to help you find the course and study option that is right for you. Our agents can assist you to apply for study either on campus in Australia or online. Depending on your country of citizenship you may be required to apply to CSU via an agent. Visit our International agents page for more information.
