At ACU we pride ourselves on offering a welcoming environment for everyone. At the same time, we are a university committed to standing for something clear. We stand up for people in need and causes that matter.
The world is our campus
We’re a publicly-funded university which has grown rapidly over the past few years. We’re young, but we are making our mark, and we’re ranked in the top 50 of Generation Y universities worldwide*. We put our students and staff at the centre of a vibrant global network of scholars, partnerships and opportunities. ACU has seven campuses around Australia – in Brisbane, North Sydney, Strathfield, Canberra, Ballarat, Melbourne and Adelaide – and we’ve recently opened a campus in Rome, Italy. Our students have the chance to study overseas with one of more than 200 partner institutions around the world.
Engaged with industry and society
We’re closely integrated into our communities and industries, working with them to answer the big questions, and to create tangible results. All our students enjoy extensive opportunities for practical placements, and community engagement is a core part of their university experience. When they graduate, our students are ready to work.
We see the whole person
You are welcome at ACU irrespective of your socio-cultural background, religious beliefs or aspirations. We’re inclusive and supportive of everyone, every day. From academic skills to career and counselling services, we have a range of support services to help our students succeed, and we offer nearly 400 scholarship opportunities.
Education with a bigger purpose
ACU offers programs in allied health, arts, business and commerce, education and teaching, exercise science, health, law, nursing and midwifery, paramedicine, philosophy, psychology and counselling, science, social work, and theology.
Along with significant student growth in recent years, we have begun to compete more intensely through our research output. ACU research programs tackle enduring and pressing issues in society, in Australia, and around the world.
At ACU, it’s education, but with a bigger purpose.
