Studying online

CSU is one of Australia's largest providers of online education and offers  the technology, support and services to ensure your study experience is positive and successful.

How does it work?

Instead of being locked in to a schedule of class times for Session 1, you will use CSU's online tools to access the study resources, communication tools and support you need to study the online component of the Associate Degree in Policing Practice (ADPP). Through CSU's subject websites, you can access your subject information, keep in touch with other students and academic staff, check your grades, order library resources, stay on top of assignment due dates and submit your assignments at the click of a button.

What should you know about studying the ADPP online?

  • Part-time study: as a part-time student, you study the two sessions (Session 1a and 1b) of the course over an eight-month period, based at home, without having to resign from your current work
  • Support: you will receive subject materials and teaching aids to assist with study
  • Tutors and lecturers: can be contacted by phone (leave messages to be returned) or email to help with any enquiries or problems you may encounter
  • All students are involved in both physical and academic activities. Students should come prepared with appropriate clothing and subject materials to suit both activities and the Goulburn climate.
  • Assessment: you will be assessed via a combination of assignments, examinations, practice simulations, presentations or seminars. The work requirements of assignments vary but often written essays, short answer questions, practical work, fieldwork or verbal presentations are used to assess skills and understanding of a topic
  • Session 2: Session 2 is conducted at the NSW Police Academy, Goulburn (16 weeks' duration). You will be eligible to apply for a scholarship / financial support. Limited on campus accommodation is available.
