Country Universities Centre

We all deserve the right to quality education, regardless of where we live.

The Country Universities Centre is a not-for-profit organisation, established with the aim of making tertiary education more accessible for regional and remote communities in New South Wales

Regional youth participate in tertiary education at less than half the rate of their metropolitan counterparts, with the gap widening further in recent years. One of the biggest challenges faced by regional and remote students is the absence of a ‘campus’ environment and its associated support and benefits. The Country Universities Centre is based on a model which delivers supported learning to these students, providing them with access to campus-level technology, facilities, tutors and a network of fellow students.

At the Country Universities Centre, we work with communities to bring higher education degrees closer.
