The Centre for Customs and Excise Studies (CCES) is pleased to announce a new partnership with an Australian university that will provide our students with further opportunities to formalise their skills in Customs Administration, Border Management and related fields.

From March 2014, CCES will be offering a Bachelor of Border Management in partnership with the prestigious Charles Sturt University. This will be the first course of its kind to be delivered entirely online. Details about this long-awaited course will be available very soon.

Charles Sturt University is the largest regionally based university in Australia, enrolling nearly 37,000 students in over 120 countries around the world. It is a leader in quality online-supported distance learning. Being the largest and one of the most experienced providers of courses delivered by innovative distance education, Charles Sturt University is a perfect fit for CCES programs, providing opportunities for students to go to university regardless of where they live, or their work and other commitments.

Our new partnership with Charles Sturt University is in addition to existing valued partnerships with educational institutions including the University of Canberra, the Community College of Qatar, the Eastern and Southern African Management Institute, the Postgraduate Institute of Management, Sri Lanka, Maldives Government, and Shanghai Customs College.

The CCES postgraduate programs are currently being revised to align with the new Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) requirements which commence in 2015. As a consequence,  in Semester 1, 2014 (March) we will only be accepting new enrolments into the Graduate Certificate in Customs Administration which will be delivered in partnership with Charles Sturt University. Successful completion of the Graduate Certificate will articulate into the Graduate Diploma, and Masters in Customs Administration.  Admissions for the full range of CCES postgraduate programs are expected to be open by no later than Semester 1, 2015:

  • Master of Customs Administration
  • Graduate Diploma in Customs Administration
  • Graduate Certificate in Customs Administration – available from March 2014

Those students who are already enrolled in a CCES postgraduate course at the University of Canberra will not be affected by the new arrangements, as we will continue to deliver our current range of programs until such students have completed their studies.
