The University of Notre Dame Australia is a national Catholic university that hosts more than 11,000 students across its three campuses in Fremantle, Broome and Sydney, and its seven clinical schools in New South Wales and Victoria.

According to the Federal Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching, Notre Dame is a leading university in WA and NSW with the highest results for the following indicators: Overall Quality of Educational Experience, Learner Engagement, Graduate Employment Rate and Skills Development. Furthermore, Notre Dame was ranked a top university in Australia in The Good Universities Guide 2018, achieving 5-star ratings for the 11th consecutive year.

“Students are at the heart of Notre Dame,” says Notre Dame’s Vice Chancellor Professor Celia Hammond. “We have always sought to educate the whole person, to provide an environment where students have the opportunity to develop the theoretical knowledge and the technical skills they need to pursue their chosen professions, yet also grow and flourish as individuals.”

Notre Dame’s operations are based upon its legislated Objects:

a) the provision of university education, within a context of Catholic faith and values; and

b) the provision of an excellent standard of –

    i. teaching, scholarship and research;

    ii. training for the professions; and

    iii. pastoral care for its students.

This approach is also reflected in the University’s personalised admission process which is based not only upon one’s academic record but also incorporates the student’s personal qualities, motivation to study, potential to succeed and contribution to school, church or community life.

Undergraduate, postgraduate and higher research degrees are offered through the University’s nine academic Schools: Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, Law, Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing & Midwifery, Physiotherapy and Philosophy & Theology. Notre Dame is also home to three leading research institutes – Nulungu Research Institute, The Institute for Health Research and The Institute for Ethics & Society.

Courses are taught by leaders in their fields and include mentoring and internship programs so students gain real-world experience while making professional contacts.
