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 in Western Australia, in Sydney in New South Wales and in seven clinical schools around NSW and Victoria.
Undergraduate, postgraduate and higher research degrees are offered through the university’s academic Schools: arts & sciences, business, education, law, health sciences, medicine, nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, and philosophy & theology.
Notre Dame is also home to three 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 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) 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 undergraduates (Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal 2019).
In addition, Notre Dame is first in Western Australia and New South Wales for learner engagement and skills development (Student Experience Survey 2018) and achieved five-star ratings in the undergraduate category for overall experience, teaching quality and skills development – for the 13th consecutive year – in the Good Universities Guide 2020.
“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 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 community contributions.
