What our students say

melissa-comerfordMelissa Comerford
Master of Information Systems Security

"I really enjoyed the whole distance education experience through CSU and highly recommend it to anyone thinking about study. The course I completed balanced academic study with relevant industry credentials and provided a great pathway for me to further my career in the IT industry. Once I got over the initial shock to the system of studying after such a long time away from formal education, achieving the work / life / study balance was the biggest challenge, but it is a skill you improve through the duration of the course. The quality, flexibility and accessibility of the online services for distance education students at CSU were excellent and there were plenty of opportunities to connect with others in the course.

"At a personal level, choosing to focus on Information Security for the degree has boosted my self-confidence in my skills and knowledge and has certainly energised and prepared me to continue working and furthering my career in the security field through more challenging roles. With respect to my current role and career development, my success in study has gained me recognition from senior executives, which may be of benefit in the future.

"Graduation day was the most memorable and special for me. The experience of the formal event and recognition, in front of family and friends, of all the hard work to complete the degree was a nice way to be rewarded."

Master of Management (Information Technology)

"When talking about CSU, I always tell family and friends that CSU is the largest Australian provider of distance education. For someone considering studying at CSU, I found the Masters course immediately applicable and relevant to my work. It really is a great way to gain access to the higher concepts and principles that may not be practised or even understood within middle and upper management of all but the top international firms. But, be conscious that distance education requires a high level of personal self-discipline.

"Cost and access to distance learning to allow me to complete the course from anywhere were important factors when choosing to study at CSU and accessing higher learning and academic understanding in my fields of interest - management and IT. I lived in Perth and then Sydney while I was studying and having the flexibility of attending sessions remotely, or replaying recorded sessions, was vital to me being able to fit the time commitment around my work and travel schedule. I blocked out committed time in my week to attend study sessions and complete assessment items in stages leading up to the due date.

"The course introduced me to a wide range of useful concepts, principles, patterns and practical skills which helped me in my existing role and assisted me to confidently step up to a more strategic, national position. There were both direct and indirect benefits from the course in relation to my plans for career development. Directly, because some of the assessments related to my organisation, I could take and use these immediately in my organisations. Indirectly, many of the theories and concepts I learned could be applied more broadly to my management role.

"Attending graduation was a great experience, heading out to the campus and putting faces to a lot of the names I'd been dealing with over the years."
