The University of Notre Dame Australia is a national Catholic university with more than 11,000 students studying across its campuses in Fremantle and Broome, Western Australia, and Sydney in New South Wales. The university also has seven clinical schools around regional NSW and Victoria.
Undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees are offered through the university’s three faculties: the Faculty of Arts, Science, Law and Business, the Faculty of Education, Philosophy & Theology, and the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Midwifery and Health Sciences.
The university aims to empower a new generation of ethical leaders and help prepare students to navigate the challenges of an ever-changing work environment by encouraging them to view the world from a new perspective.
Critical thinking is at the core of each degree at Notre Dame, an approach that equips students for a fulfilling life, as well as a successful career. 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) suite of surveys.
Notre Dame is the number one university in Australia for overall satisfaction among undergraduate graduates (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2019), as well as in the top two nationally for medium term, full-time employment among postgraduates (Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal 2020).
In addition, Notre Dame is the number one university in Australia for skills development (Student Experience Survey 2019) and achieved five-star ratings in the undergraduate category for overall experience, teaching quality and skills development – for the 14th consecutive year – in the Good Universities Guide 2021.
“Notre Dame’s holistic approach to education is designed to develop students both academically and personally. This underscores the reason why our overall quality of education experience is among the best in Australia,” said Notre Dame’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Francis Campbell.
The university’s unique, personalised admissions 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 community contributions.
