Overview

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is unique. As a truly international university, students, staff, academic and research endeavours are globally connected and respected. No other single Australian university serves such a large area of the continent, with the Northern Territory campus locations showcasing the best of a tropical cosmopolitan lifestyle, right on Asia’s doorstep. In a relatively short time, CDU has developed a reputation as one of the most innovative teaching and learning, and most research-intensive universities in Australia. CDU students are supported by highly qualified and experienced staff. A low student to teacher ratio promotes academic success through small class sizes and high levels of teacher-student interaction. CDU qualifications are recognised globally, and graduates are highly valued and sought after.

Reasons to choose CDU:

  • An award winning, young and dynamic university, CDU recently placed equal first among all Australian universities for graduate salary, and second for graduate employment (Good Universities Guide 2019). 
  • Our research is considered world-class with 82% of CDU’s research rated at world standard and above according to the ERA (Research Excellence Rankings Analysis)
  • CDU is a dual-sector university, providing both vocational (skills-based) and higher (academic-based) education in the same institution. Students can move seamlessly from the CDU International College or Vocational Education and Training (VET) to higher education (HE) studies, to upskill and cross skill as they traverse future-relevant career paths.
    •  A leader in delivering education to remote communities – including over 100 remote Indigenous communities – and have been delivering courses online for 18 years.
