The University of Notre Dame Australia is committed to offering a unique, fulfilling education experience that empowers you to learn, grow, and be the best version of yourself.

Driven by our five pillars – universality, educating for the common good, transformative research, integrating practice and knowledge, and integral human development – we continue our journey of uniqueness, impact, and excellence.

Our students are our number one priority. We take great pride in educating the whole person; the academic, social, physical, and spiritual dimensions. We encourage our students to thrive and contribute to our communities.

Our Catholic identity is integral to who we are, but we’re open to all beliefs and views. We share our story with the wider family of Catholic universities that we’re a part of.

The role of a modern Catholic university is much more than the creation and transmission of knowledge. We believe in the power of education to change lives and form good citizens.

We seek truth; best achieved when, as Newman’s motto states - the “heart speaks unto heart”.

Our campuses extend from the West Coast of Australia in historic Fremantle, to the North-West town of Broome, to the heart of Sydney, along with eight clinical schools in regional New South Wales and Victoria.

The journey to establish a private Catholic university in Australia was documented by Edward Molloy (President Emeritus, the University of Notre Dame Indiana) and Peter Tannock (Vice Chancellor Emeritus, the University of Notre Dame Australia).

Our Core Curriculum focuses on providing the tools to thrive and make important contributions to your community.

In this age of unprecedented change, we will equip you with essential skills to help you achieve your career ambitions while building a better world.

We encourage and support our staff in the same way, so they can be part of a wider community with the opportunity to make a real difference.

Our commitment to research prioritises community needs, enriches human lives, and supports human health, particularly for vulnerable groups.

We pursue our vision for transformative research through three themes: good lives, exceptional care, and strong communities. They inform one another and bring together researchers across disciplines, communities, industry, and society – nationally and globally.
