“After post-school work experience opportunities at Channel 7 and 2UE, I was told if I wanted a career in communications I must go to CSU, Bathurst. It was the best decision I made. The degree provided me with hands-on experience, informative and interesting classes and dedicated lecturers and tutors who genuinely wanted to see me succeed. After an educational, and not to mention very fun few years in Bathurst, I’m now a senior public relations practitioner who is extremely grateful of my CSU learnings.”
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.
“Studying at Charles Sturt University (CSU) was one of the best steps in my career. The course at CSU was practical and gave us hands-on experience that absolutely helped me to gain my first role as a graduate. Because class sizes were much smaller than many other universities it meant our teachers could take the time to personally get to know students.
"Not only would I highly recommend the course, but also studying on campus. During my time at CSU I made lifelong friends and thoroughly enjoyed the social aspects and the support network offered by my ‘dormies’.
"The connections I made during my time at CSU have also been invaluable in my career. Before I entered the workplace, I was consistently told “CSU grads are the ones who get jobs” and this has absolutely proved to be true. I am now surrounded by CSU alumni as friends, colleagues and industry contacts. I wholeheartedly recommend the Public Relations degree at CSU."
