Charles Sturt University has cemented its position as a global university after signing an agreement with the United Kingdom's Hartpury University.
The memorandum of understanding will establish academic co-operation between the two universities, building the opportunity to collaborate on research and initiatives.
Among the agreements now in place with the Gloucestershire university will be the regular exchange of students, particularly for those at the Bathurst campus of CSU.
CSU deputy vice-chancellor Professor Heather Cavanagh said: "We look forward to developing close links and some exciting projects with Hartpury University."
Hartpury University's vice-chancellor Russell Marchant said the university communities would "look forward to drawing on the expertise of staff and the world-class facilities and resources at both institutions to act as specialist hubs for wider community relationships and provide co-ordinated services to business".
