Our town, our university

CSU is dedicated to providing higher education pathways for Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islander people.

Due to great demand the CSU Indigenous Access Program (IAP) has returned this year with its first-ever midyear intake program. Indigenous Australians of all ages are invited to take part in the five-day intensive pathways program at CSU in Dubbo from Monday, June 25 to Friday, June 29.

Successful completion of this program provides entry into a range of CSU bachelor courses including, at CSU Orange, science, clinical science and physiotherapy.

CSU manager of Indigenous Student Centres Mr Nathan Peckham said the program helps potential students assess their skills and suitability to study while also offering them a range of support and networks to help them succeed at CSU.

“The Indigenous Access Program has run for several years and has successfully built confidence in those preparing for university,” Mr Peckham said.

“Our goal is to make sure each student gets a personalised pathway into Charles Sturt University so they can study the course they’ve always dreamed of doing.”

The course facilitates confidence building in preparing for university, assesses literacy and numeracy skills, offers career guidance and support, and provides access to personalised course advice. Assistance with travel, accommodation, and meals is available for eligible participants.
