BACHELOR of Paramedicine and Bachelor of Psychology courses are proving popular at the Bathurst CSU campus, the university says.
CSU says there have been 1427 offers made to prospective students to study at Bathurst in 2022, which is equal to 2021 offers.
It comes after Vice-Chancellor Professor Renee Leon assured prospective CSU students that the university would be doing all it could to have face-to-face learning on its campuses.
CSU says it has made more than 16,000 offers to prospective students who have applied to study with the university.
It says overall offers for 2022 have increased by seven per cent, which includes almost 4000 offers through the Charles Sturt Advantage early offer program, which is based on year 11 results and "soft skills" such as resilience and empathy.
Growth courses across the university include Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor of Education (K-12) and Bachelor of Social Work, according to CSU, and "there has also been a marked increase in applications to the Diploma of General Studies, which is a pathway course to undergraduate degrees".
Professor Leon said the number of applications the university had received during January was 13 per cent higher than in 2021.
"We are pleased to see strong growth across a wide range of courses on our regional campuses, and many of our in-demand courses in allied health, veterinary science and dental science are at capacity," she said.
"Our strategic focus courses in agriculture, cyber security and information technology have also seen an increase in applications.
"The number of offers made to prospective students to study at our campuses has increased to 7429 in 2022, coupled with more than 9000 offers made to online students."
In a statement last week congratulating the year 12 class of 2021, Professor Leon said CSU would be doing "everything possible in the current environment and within government advice and regulations" to have face-to-face learning on its campuses.
