- Charles Sturt signs agreement with Australian Navy Warfare Branch
Charles Sturt University has signed an agreement with the Australian Navy Warfare Branch to recognise the previous training of Navy personnel when they study at the University.
The agreement was signed in June to allow for the recognition of previous education and training of Navy personnel when they commence a Master of Intelligence Analysis or Master of Terrorism and Security Studies at Charles Sturt.
The agreement was signed by Executive Dean of the Charles Sturt Faculty of Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences Professor Tracey Green and Director General of Navy Information Warfare, Commodore Matthew Doornbos.
Professor Green said the collaboration is an opportunity to enhance the career paths and further develop the expertise of Navy staff.
“The high level of professionalism and experience plus the previous study completed by Navy personnel has been recognised to provide an opportunity for them to complete our applied Intelligence postgraduate programs,” she said.
Charles Sturt Course Director with the Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security Mr Brian Daly said the agreement is the latest development in a long partnership between the University and Defence to improve undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
“There is a growing interest in Defence for personnel to complete civilian qualifications in support of a wide range of education that they complete within their organisations,” he said.
“This agreement will allow Charles Sturt University to further assist those personnel to attain high-level university qualifications that are valuable to them in their current positions and also in the civilian world.”
