Regional University Study Centres (RUSC)
CSU's Regional University Study Centres (RUSC) offer access to higher education in rural locations. Centres are equipped with modern teaching facilities installed with the latest technological features. Centres, which are developed through partnerships with various TAFE institutes and local councils, also help support transitioning and current CSU students by offering face-to-face academic support.
CSU's RUSCs are regularly visited by CSU's Outreach Team and students have access to support services and assistance via the Study Centre Coordinator.
