Welcome to The University of Notre Dame Australia

As a young and innovative university, we are dedicated to personal service to our students and the development of a caring approach to learning. Providing high quality university teaching, internship programs and other professional work experience opportunities are critical in our commitment to prepare our students for employment when they graduate. We want our students to develop themselves intellectually and to enhance their faith and values.

Notre Dame is a Catholic university. We are defined by our Objects - the provision of university education within a context of Catholic faith and values. We seek excellence in teaching, scholarship and research, training for the professions, and the pastoral care of our students. In meeting these Objects, the University also seeks to be open to all people.

Student demand for our courses and our teaching and learning environment continues to grow. We believe this is in response to the significant levels of satisfaction our students and graduates report of their experience at Notre Dame. At the same time, our range of study abroad and exchange programs has increased, indicating the high regard with which we are held in the international community.

Integral to our success is our staff both academic and administrative. We greatly value their loyalty to the University, our students and their commitment to striving for excellent results. We are very proud of what we achieve and we welcome new staff to become part of the Notre Dame experience.
