Information for parents

Parents and guardians play an important role in providing advice, guidance and support for students deciding on university study. We've collected some of the key points to help you below, but if there's anything else you'd like to ask, our Prospective Student Advisers will be happy to call you for a chat.

What do you need to know?

As a parent, being able to help your child to answer the following questions will really help:

To discuss any questions you may have, talk to a CSU Prospective Student Adviser by phoning 1800 334 733.

Tips for parents:

  • Listen to your child and pay careful attention to their hobbies, strengths and any career interests to gain a sense of the direction they might like to take.
  • Start the conversation to see what your child would like to do after they finish high school. CSU's Choose Your Career provides a useful where-to-start-guide for Year 10 students. 
  • Attend a parent information session at your child's school.
  • Encourage your child to take part in work experience in areas that interest them to show them what industry is really like.
  • Familiarise yourself with the CSU Future Students website where you can research university life and find detailed course information across a range of career areas.
  • Browse our range of printed publications to see which courses are being offered.
  • Consider attending a career area focused MyDay event with your child.
  • Keep track of important dates such as opening and closing dates for UAC / VTAC, the School's Recommendation Scheme (SRS), scholarships and accommodation.
