Regional University Study Hubs (formerly known as Regional University Centres) support students in rural, regional and remote Australia to access, participate and succeed in tertiary education without having to leave their communities.
Regional study hubs provide physical, campus-like spaces and support for students who are studying university or VET courses online at any Australian institution. Centres provide students with infrastructure - such as study spaces with high-speed internet access and video conferencing; administrative guidance; academic support services; and pastoral care. These facilities and supports provide an alternative to moving away for study and enhance the experience of students studying within their own community.
Each study hub is unique and embedded within its community. Each hub reflects the community it serves including the place, people, local industry and educational provision. A list of the Regional University Study Hubs and their contact details is provided below.
The Regional University Study Hubs Network aims to provide support to The Network staff across Australia and foster collaboration through a community of practice. The activity of The Network is informed by the needs of The Network staff, guided by the Regional University Study Hubs Network Advisory Committee and funded by the Australian Government Department of Education (DoE).
More information about the funding of Regional University Study Hubs is available on the DoE website: Regional University Study Hubs - Department of Education, Australian Government
