About Australian Catholic University

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. Driven by the Catholic intellectual tradition, but welcoming of people from all cultures and faiths. 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.

We may have started small, but today, we’re one of the fastest growing universities in Australia. We have more than 33,000 students from more than 160 countries and over 2,300 highly qualified staff who are committed to ACU’s unique approach to education.

It’s not just our staff and student numbers that are growing, either. We recently opened a new campus in Rome, Italy, which sits alongside our seven Australian campuses in Adelaide†, Ballarat, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, and Sydney (Strathfield and North Sydney). With international placements available for students in all faculties, the ACU experience is now truly global.

As a publicly-funded university, we strongly believe in our responsibility to advance the common good. 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.

We’re also using our research as a catalyst for change, investing heavily in strategic research programs and research capacity over the last few years. As a result, ACU is now a highly ranked globally recognised university that’s home to multiple research institutes, and we’re continuing to build the research workforce through the recruitment and ongoing training of masters and PhD candidates.

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’ll stay connected to ACU through our 100,000-strong alumni cohort, no matter where you are.
