Why I chose CSU

I began my University studies as a very mature aged distance education student (I live at Port Lincoln in South Australia) and my sole aim was to achieve a Bachelor of Arts degree. I enjoyed this so much that I went on to complete Honours Class 1. Not wishing to abandon my University studies, I became a PhD candidate and have enjoyed immensely, my journey.
