Getting ready to study

We help you prepare for studying at CSU by offering a three day course called the Indigenous Access Program. This will give you more information about what you can study and also give you a personalised plan for the future.

More time to study

Once you’ve started at CSU, you’re also eligible to apply for additional support from tutors through the Indigenous Student Success Program (ISSP – formerly ITAS). This will allow you to get up to two hours extra support from a tutor per subject per week and an additional five hours leading up to exams.
