Studying at Charles Darwin University

Want to change career? Go further in your current industry? Or perhaps you’re starting out and want to pursue your passion?

At Charles Darwin University (CDU) we think differently; we innovate and embrace change; we challenge conventions and look for better ways. And we believe it’s the unique experiences, perspectives and options you bring with you that help make us a new world university.  

Whether you study online or on campus, you’ll be one of the 24,000 CDU students who benefit from our innovative, multi-sector learning environment, flexible courses and leadership in research. 

While CDU’s roots are in the Northern Territory (with more than 11 campuses and centres in Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine and beyond), we also deliver courses at our Sydney campus, as well as online. In fact, CDU was one of the first universities in Australia to offer courses online. We have more than 15 years’ experience in delivering a supportive, responsive and personalised learning experience that will keep you motivated and engaged while you fit study into your schedule. 

CDU offers more than 100 undergraduate and postgraduate courses online, on campus, part time or full time. CDU is known for our flagship degrees in nursing and midwifery, teaching, law, engineering, and environmental sciences. We also offer a variety of unique courses in Indigenous knowledges, health, humanities, social work, and humanitarian, disaster and emergency management, among others.
