My course highlight was being able to work on real client projects from day one and extensive internship opportunities. This opened my eyes to the variety of jobs in the industry and shaped my career focus. The major benefit of studying public relations at Charles Sturt University (CSU) was connecting with peers from all communications disciplines and understanding how the various areas of communication work together. My professional network is richer for the experience which has been a big advantage for my career.
“The practical elements of the course gave me the hands-on experience I needed to prepare myself for the work force. Studying at Bathurst has given me so many opportunities outside of pure academics.
"I was lucky enough to combine my studies with travel, and went on an exchange to Oregon State. From joining a sorority, to tailgating at football games, my time in the states was a once in a lifetime experience, which a lot of the time felt EXACTLY like the movies. Exchange is something I could not recommend more highly, and is a great way to really experience another country's culture.”
"While studying at Charles Sturt University (CSU), I found that the lecturers and tutors were really supportive and were able to provide real life examples during our classes which allowed me to gain a better understanding of the advertising industry.
"Throughout the course, I found all the subjects were applicable to my role now as an Investment Manager. Near the end of my degree, CSU and my lecturers were so supportive in helping us all gain real industry experience and assisted me in gaining an internship at a media agency in Sydney. After the internship I was offered a full-time role and worked my way up to Account Manager.
"My experience at CSU was extremely positive and provided me with essential skills and knowledge for my career in advertising."
