    Had a great experience

    I have just completed my honours year in Psychology at CSU and found the uni to be great. Mostly the support to students financially through scholarships etc is fantastic. I found all my lecturers to be easy to talk to and approachable, and very supportive. Hoping to get a Masters offer there for next year.

    Great Experience

    My experience of the University was a very good one. The course I studied (Medical Imaging) provided me with a great platform to begin my career as a radiographer. Lecturers were helpful and approachable, the course structure was good and facilities were everything we needed them to be.

    As I am now working in the field we get a lot of students/graduates coming through from the uni and they are, as a whole, high quality radiographers.

    I had a great experience at CSU. Having just finished Diagnostic Radiography I feel I couldn’t be any better prepared for my career in Radiography.

    The Perfect Start to my Career

    Firstly, I think it’s important to point out that student experiences and satisfaction levels will vary greatly from individual to individual and course to course. It would have been really helpful for some of the people leaving negative reviews here to mention the course they were doing. That way the comments could be used more critically to improve courses and offer impending students greater understanding.

    The comments do not mirror my experiences as a FT student at the CSU Wagga campus.

    Studying Diagnostic Radiography at CSU far exceeded my expectations of what I would experience at any University. The course was well structured with a perfect blend of theory and practical. The lecturers were approachable and well considered. I left feeling completely capable as a Radiographer and ready to start my career.

    Outdated docs . Lost faith/trust in the uni

    I’ve gotta say – I lost faith/trust in their services.
    Really poor standards. They are not reading what they send to students.
    Was even told as an undergrad student – “Just play the game”.
    I got outdated documents -12 months old they wanted me to sign and complete for an event. Like errr NO !
    When students asked for a corrected document – the excuse came back – ‘the service allocation staff have been inundated with work’.
    Students refused knowing – they ( service allocation staff ) could pull out the paper and state it wasn’t completed by the student for 12 months.

    as said – students have lost trust in the uni.
