Yindyamarra Winhanganha. This is a Wiradjuri phrase meaning ‘the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in’. This ethos is at the heart of everything we stand for. It’s the reason we strive to actively create a world worth living in. 

To us, a world worth living in is a place that protects and values society’s core needs. The security of our land and food. The health and education of our people. The development of technology to help us prosper. Clear and honest communication with ourselves – and each other. 

Charles Sturt University was founded on a quest to meet these fundamental needs. Since day one, we have empowered people to make the world a better place. Because we believe in making a difference. 

So, what does it mean to create a world worth living in? It means doing your bit to make a real and lasting difference. It means not being afraid to stand up and be counted. It means finding your purpose and seeing it through to the end. Because when we connect people with their purpose, we make communities better, and when we make communities better, we create a world worth living in.

That’s where we come in. We want to help people connect to their purpose, so they can make a difference in their career. Whether you’re taking your first step after school, coming to uni for the first time after some time working or returning to enhance your qualifications or undertake research, we’ll have the course to help you push the boundaries and make an impact. 

How? Well, firstly, our academics and teaching staff are well-connected with industry, so when you graduate, you’ll already have a wide network of industry contacts who can help you kickstart your career. We also make hands-on learning a central part of your study, so you learn by doing, and because we have smaller class sizes, you get the personalised attention you need to thrive. Plus, we offer the flexibility to choose your study path so you can learn however suits you best – on campus, online or a combination of the two – with support whenever you need it. 

It all adds up to Charles Sturt University being Australia's number one university for graduate employment.* That’s right; more of our grads get jobs – and well-paying ones at that – faster than grads from any other Australian uni. Because with a Charles Sturt University degree under your belt, you’re ready to make a difference in your industry and community from day one.

We believe everyone offers something unique. At Charles Sturt University you become part of something bigger: you join a tight-knit community from across the globe that is committed to changing things for the better. 

So, are you ready to get to work? Let’s create a world worth living in.
