My transition from TAFE to CSU was smooth. The amount of support from CSU was amazing; helping me to feel comfortable and confident whilst entering into the degree program. The lecturers do an amazing job and CSU's online community is fantastic.

Warwick Clarke

Warwick Clarke, Bachelor of Creative Industries, Oncampus

I encourage anyone considering studying at university after TAFE. TAFE was amazing for giving me the practical skills, and university has then fine-tuned my organisational and literary skills and broadened my knowledge and determination. The combination gives me greater confidence in setting out.

Bronwyn Higgins

Bronwyn Higgins, Bachelor of Education (Birth to Five Years), Online

Online study fits in with my family and work commitments. The best part of my course so far has been gaining confidence and learning new skills I can put into practice. I connect with my lecturers and fellow students online and have found all my lecturers to be encouraging, helpful and supportive.

James Stewart

James Stewart, Bachelor of Applied Science (Parks, Recreation and Heritage), Oncampus

TAFE gave me great practical skills and real world experience in Natural Resource Management. University has helped me understand the science behind the practical, and has improved my critical thinking. The small class sizes have allowed me to get to know my lectures, who are experts in their fields.

I chose CSU because of guaranteed entry from my TAFE course and the credit, and CSU’s reputation for excellence in Communication. CSU's clear commitment to support and encourage TAFE graduates to aim high and succeed in a flexible study environment confirmed that this particular University was right for me.
