Charles Darwin University

At Charles Darwin University (CDU) we think differently; we innovate and embrace change and believe it’s the unique experiences, perspectives and opinions you bring that make us a new world university.  

Whether you’re just starting out, looking to change career or go further in your field, CDU offers more than 100 undergraduate and postgraduate courses to help turn your passion into a profession.  

Best known for our flagship degrees in nursing, midwifery, teaching, law, engineering and environmental sciences, we also offer unique and highly specialised courses in Indigenous knowledges, health sciences, humanities, social work, and humanitarian aid, emergency and disaster management, among others. 

While CDU’s roots are in Darwin, Northern Territory, we deliver face to face courses at our Sydney campus, as well as support for our many online students living and working across New South Wales.

Charles Darwin University is ranked in the top two Australian universities for graduate employment and salary outcomes, according to Good Universities Guide Ratings 2019.
