Australian Catholic University (ACU)

Australian Catholic University (ACU) is a publicly-funded, world ranked university and we welcome students and staff of all beliefs and backgrounds. At ACU, we’re a university unlike any other. Large enough to make our mark on the world, but small enough that you’ll feel part of the ACU family.      

As one of the fastest growing universities in Australia, we have more than 33,000 students including over 4,300 international students from more than 90 countries. International students can choose to study at one of our campuses located in Melbourne, North Sydney, Strathfield, Blacktown, Brisbane, Canberra or Ballarat. ACU’s world leading academic reputation is led by four faculties including Faculty of Health Science, Faculty of Education and Arts, Faculty of Law and Business and Faculty of Theology and Philosophy.

We’re committed to standing up for people in need and for causes that matter, and if you’ve got the desire to make an impact, we’ll give you the skills to change the world. As a student, you have a lot to gain from an ACU degree. You’ll become part of the fabric of the university, an expert in your field of enquiry and an agent of community change. And, once you graduate, you can stay connected to ACU through our 125,000-strong alumni cohort, no matter where you are. When you choose ACU, you’ll be choosing more than just a university qualification from an overseas university. You’ll be choosing a place to call home.
