With our home and our heart in the Northern Territory, we embrace the inclusive, resilient, and courageous spirit of the Territory. We are a deeply connected university, working in close partnership and collaboration with First Nations peoples, our communities, industry and government.
We are proud to be Australia’s first dual-sector university and the largest training provider in the Northern Territory.
Our locations span the capital cities of Darwin, Brisbane, and Sydney to the regional hubs of Alice Springs, Palmerston, Katherine and the remote locations in Jabiru, Tennant Creek and Yulara, and on Country – in community, with the community.
We’re committed to working together to achieve the social, cultural and economic aspirations of First Nations people for the betterment of all Australians. Each year CDU teaches over 4,000 First Nations students and we offer unique courses in Indigenous culture, history, policy and language that are critical to advancing Indigenous knowledges in Australia.
Works are progressing in Darwin’s CBD on the $250 million Education and Community Precinct featuring a modern new CDU campus scheduled to open in 2024.
We excel in flexible study options and are a world leader in delivering education to remote communities with a focus on ensuring far-reaching access to education. Our training and degree education is delivered by outstanding educators in a way that is accessible and meaningful.
CDU research is recognised as excellent in Indigenous and tropical health, environmental science and public policy. Our research portfolio has real-world impact, within and beyond our unique location.
