Charles Darwin University is committed to internationalisation. The University has a focused and comprehensive international strategy for the delivery of a range of education, training and research services and collaborations to strengthen its international reputation and impact. 

Charles Darwin University delivers more than 75 nationally recognised and accredited programs to more than 1600 international students from more than 50 different nationalities. The main campus is in Darwin where most international students chose to study; some CDU courses are available in Sydney and in Melbourne. 

In 2014 CDU won the Austrade National Export Award for excellence and innovation in international education in recognition of its sustained international growth strategy. 

The Office of International Services is responsible for managing the University's international operations under the direction of the Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Sharon Bell.
