The world is our campus

We’re a publicly-funded university which has grown rapidly over the past few years. The world is our campus, and we put our students and staff at the centre of a vibrant global network of scholars, partnerships and opportunities. ACU has seven campuses around Australia – in Brisbane, North Sydney, Strathfield, Canberra, Ballarat, Melbourne and Adelaide – and we’ve recently opened a campus in Rome, Italy. With us, you’ll have the chance to study overseas with one of more than 200 partner institutions around the world.

Engaged with industry and society

We’re closely integrated into our communities and industries, working with them to answer the big questions, and to create tangible results. From hospitals, to schools and any number of far-flung places, our students and staff have always rolled up their sleeves to be fully engaged in the real world. 

All our students enjoy extensive opportunities for practical placements, and community engagement is a core part of their university experience. You could find yourself teaching children in Vanuatu, assisting in a community organisation in Cambodia, working with a welfare agency in Florence, or helping to develop youth soccer teams in East Timor. When they graduate, our students are ready to work, and the employment rate of our bachelor degree graduates is consistently higher than the national average.*

We see the whole person

You are welcome at ACU irrespective of your socio-cultural background, religious beliefs or aspirations. We’re inclusive and supportive of everyone, every day. With us, you’ll be valued and encouraged to thrive to the full extent of your potential. From academic skills to career and counselling services, we have a range of support services to help you succeed. We also offer nearly 400 scholarships, which

recognise academic achievement, community participation, and help out students from a range of backgrounds. 

Education with a bigger purpose

ACU offers programs in allied health, arts, business and commerce, education and teaching, exercise science, health, law, nursing and midwifery, paramedicine, philosophy, psychology and counselling, science, social work, and theology.

Along with significant student growth in recent years, we’ve begun to compete more intensely through our research output. ACU research programs tackle enduring and pressing issues in society, in Australia, and around the world.

At ACU, it’s education, but with a bigger purpose.
