ACU is driven by the Catholic intellectual tradition but welcomes people from all cultures and faiths. It is large enough to make a mark on the world, yet small enough to make you feel a part of the ACU family.

Highly Affordable

ACU is one of the most affordable universities in Australia. Their various recognized and accredited courses offer an excellent return on investment.

Study Anyway and Everywhere

Choose from six beautiful campuses across the east coast of Australia or transfer between them to get the most of your ACU experience. You can even apply for an international opportunity on ACU Rome Campus and spend part of your degree overseas.

A Perfect Fit

When you study at ACU, you become part of a community. ACU campuses and classes are the perfect size, so you won’t get lost in the crowd. Your lecturers will know you by name and you’ll make great friends and strong networks.

Exchange Program

Short-term study abroad programs are offered in more than 200 organizations across 40 countries. There is also an ACU campus in Rome where a range of short-term programs are offered.
