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

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.

The University’s approach to higher education prepares students to navigate the challenges of an ever-changing work environment by encouraging them to question, to ‘see beyond’ and view the world from a totally new perspective.

Creative and critical thinking are at the core of each degree program at Notre Dame, an approach that prepares students for a fulfilling and reflective life. It also gives Notre Dame students an edge in the workforce, as reflected in results from the Federal Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (Qilt.edu.au).

In the most recent QILT surveys, Notre Dame achieved the highest results in Western Australia and New South Wales for Overall Quality of Educational Experience, Teaching Quality, Learner Engagement, Skills Development and Student Support.

In addition, the University achieved 5-star ratings for Overall Experience, Teaching Quality and Skills Development – for the 12th consecutive year – in the Good Universities Guide 2019.

“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,” said Notre Dame’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Celia Hammond.

The University’s personalised admission process is based not only on a prospective student’s academic record but also takes into account personal qualities, motivation to study, potential to succeed and contribution to school, sports or community life.
