Charles Sturt Vice-Chancellor Professor Renée Leon said the number of applications the University had received during January was 13 per cent higher than in 2021.
“We are pleased to see strong growth across a wide range of courses on our regional campuses, and many of our in-demand courses in allied health, veterinary science and dental science are at capacity, she said.
“Our strategic focus courses in agriculture, cyber security and information technology have also seen an increase in applications.
“The number of offers made to prospective students to study at our campuses has increased to 7,429 in 2022, coupled with more than 9,000 offers made to online students.
“The increase in demand proves the strength in the diverse and hands-on learning experiences Charles Sturt University offers, which translates into outstanding graduate outcomes for students across our courses.”
