About

History

Whilst we've been a university for more than 20 years, our history of professional education and research spans more than 100 years. This started with the establishment of the Bathurst Experimental Farm in 1895.

Education

Charles Sturt University's four Faculties (Arts, Business, Education and Science) comprise a number of Schools and centres for specific areas of study and research.

Research

Charles Sturt University has established designated Research Centres representing concentrations of research expertise that align with CSUs mission. Centres are expected to demonstrate sustained success in an area of research that supports the strategic direction and key performance indicators of the University. Within each Centre, research activities are arranged around a number of theme areas under which collaboration and interdisciplinary research is encouraged.
