Port Macquarie International Student Mid-Year Graduation Celebration

Port Macquarie campus celebrated 202130 graduating students on Wednesday 4 August 2021. It was a wonderful celebration for our international students and provided a great opportunity for other international students to catch up and celebrate the start of the session. The event was originally delayed due to COVID-19, but was held on campus as a covid safe event just prior to the current lock-down. We congratulate all students on this milestone, and staff that were involved in the students Charles Sturt experience.

Big Day In – 2021

On Wednesday 25 August Port Macquarie campus hosted the Big Day In event. The aim of this event was to inform prospective students of the variety of STEM careers available. It specifically targeted local high school students. Unfortunately, with the regional lock-down due to COVID-19 a live event wasn’t possible, but it still ran as an online event. Attendance was strong, with more than 100 prospective students logging in to hear speakers from Microsoft, WiseTech Global, Essential Energy, and Adobe talk to the audience about IT careers. Our IT undergraduate Course Director, Dr Jason Howarth, also gave a presentation on Charles Sturt study pathways that can help launch students on their STEM career pathway.
