Articulation Agreement with Charles Sturt University
Library Training Services Australia has established an articulation agreement with Charles Sturt University (CSU) to give our students a pathway to higher education.
The articulation agreement allows LTSA students who successfully complete the Diploma of Library / Information Services (CUL50105) to receive 64 credit points towards the completion of the Bachelor of Information Studies at CSU.
This guaranteed credit allows students to complete their librarianship studies in a shorter period of time, thus enhancing career pathways.
