The successful partnership between Charles Sturt University and Study Group Australia (SGA) that has seen SGA operate Charles Sturt’s Study Centre facilities in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane for over 25 years will expire at the end of 2022.
This follows a strategic decision by Charles Sturt to focus its international education study experience on its regional campus network.
Charles Sturt and SGA are committed to ensuring all students enrolled in the Charles Sturt Study Centres will be supported and receive the highest standards of education through a teach-out process which enables them to become Charles Sturt graduates.
Charles Sturt has notified the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and is working with them on an ongoing basis to ensure all student obligations are met.
All other existing Charles Sturt partnerships and agreements remain in place.
Charles Sturt University Provost, Professor John Germov, said: “Charles Sturt University and Study Group Australia have been partners for more than 25 years, an agreement which has seen more than 17,000 students further their careers with a Charles Sturt University qualification.
“Charles Sturt University and Study Group Australia will continue working together now and share a strong commitment to the teaching of students at the Study Centres through to completion of their studies.”
“International education remains one of Charles Sturt University’s priority strategic focuses and we look forward to delivering an outstanding experience for international students and researchers at our regional campuses.”
Managing Director for Study Group Australia, Mr Alex Chevrolle said: “After 25 years of supporting international students to progress to study Accounting, Business Studies, Information Technology, Management and Marketing at Charles Sturt University, we would like to thank all our teachers and support staff who have dedicated themselves to the success of our students from around the world.
“Our efforts now will focus on supporting our final cohort of students at the Charles Sturt Study Centres, enabling their academic success and progression into their careers as we have done for over 17,000 students over the past 25 years.
“We wish the University well in its renewed regional strategy and reinforce that Study Group remains committed to delivering exceptional education for our students and working with our long-standing partners to deliver unique solutions across academic delivery, financial support, and employability skills development.”
