New admission pathway for Charles Sturt University’s communication and creative industries degrees

A student’s ATAR/VCE doesn’t always reflect their potential. Charles Sturt University’s (CSU’s) individual assessment program enables us to make conditional offers to Year 12 students interested in acting, advertising, animation, art, design, journalism, photography, public relations, radio, sound design, television or theatre media – based on an interview, audition or portfolio review.
