The University of Notre Dame Australia is a national Catholic university with more than 12,000 students across its campuses in Fremantle and Broome, Western Australia, and Sydney, New South Wales. The university also has seven clinical schools located in regional NSW and Victoria.
The university’s three faculties (the Faculty of Arts, Sciences, Law and Business, the Faculty of Education and Philosophy and Theology, and the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery and Health Sciences) offer undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees.
The university provides excellent standards of teaching, scholarship, professional training, and research with established networks in healthcare, education, and social services. The university has developed a solid platform of research engagement across its six focus areas of ethics, philosophy, theology, Catholic education, health, and Indigenous studies, stemming from three principal research institutes: the Institute for Ethics & Society in Sydney, the Institute for Health Research in Fremantle, and the Nulungu Research Institute based in Broome.
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 fulfilling lives, as well as successful careers.
In results from the Federal Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching surveys, Notre Dame is the number one university in Australia for overall employment of graduates (2021 Graduate Outcomes Survey – Longitudinal, undergraduate category).
