Bachelor degree at CSU

11 years of school is not enough to get into CSU. Since students study longer in Australia, you must first eliminate the academic difference — study for a year at a university in your home country, or take one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). Enrollment in undergraduate programs is based on the results of entrance examinations. The student's GPA is also taken into account. Before applying, you need to pass the IELTS, PTE or TOEFL exam. The minimum TOEFL score is 1. The IELTS score is not lower than 6. A subject exam is required. The university relies on the SAT or A-Level results. Upon admission, an IB diploma is accepted. CSU also provides online undergraduate programs.


Master's degree at CSU

The admission committee of the university takes into account the previous academic performance of the student. To confirm your level of English, you must pass IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score for admission is 6. TOEFL — 80 or higher. There is an opportunity for admission to online master's programs at CSU.


CSU campus

The campus of CSU is urban. This means that students study closely to the sights and the entire recreational infrastructure of the city. This type of campus gives students more options for internships and part-time jobs. University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. CSU regularly accepts students for international exchange programs, providing both local and international students with the opportunity to come into contact with different cultures and gain unique experience.

What to do after graduation

After graduation, you can stay in Australia for another 1.5 to 4 years, depending on the degree received. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa — it allows you to work in the country without changing your visa to a work one. We talk about other options for immigration in our article.
