Charles Sturt University will open a campus in Sydney in 2024 in a strategic partnership with leading global education provider, Navitas.

To be known as Charles Sturt University Sydney, the campus will initially offer a suite of business, accounting and IT courses, in both Bachelors and Masters.

Located in custom-designed learning and teaching space in North Sydney, Charles Sturt University Sydney will host both international and domestic students, with students to be offered the opportunity to undertake a regional experience as part of their degree.

Charles Sturt Vice-Chancellor, Professor Renée Leon, said Navitas - with more than 5,000 staff, 60,000 current students and 92 colleges and campuses globally - was the ideal partner to ensure the campus’s success.

“Students at Charles Sturt University Sydney will have the opportunity to live and learn in one of the most vibrant cities in the world,” Professor Leon said.

“They will also enjoy the same outstanding student experience as Charles Sturt students at our regional campuses, including access to our online learning resources and other services as required.

“Navitas is a highly regarded third-party provider with its own CRICOS registered institutes of higher education, VET and ELICOS operations, a global recruitment network, and a successful track record working with universities around the world, including in Australia.”

Scott Jones, Group CEO, Navitas said: “We are thrilled to partner with Charles Sturt University, through our Careers & Industry division, to establish a new campus in vibrant North Sydney just a short distance from iconic Australian landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

“The urban convenience and natural beauty of the area, combined with access to first-class education and student support services, will position Charles Sturt University Sydney as an attractive option for international students seeking a memorable and rewarding learning experience on Australia's east coast.

“Our purpose at Navitas is to transform lives through education. We are looking forward to working with Charles Sturt University to provide more students with opportunities to earn a degree, develop knowledge and learn the skills they need for future employment and success.”
