Study externally

At Charles Darwin University (CDU) you don’t need to sacrifice work or family life to study.

Our online learning options offer the flexibility of studying when it suits you, so that you can balance study commitments with a career, family and social life.

Increasingly popular with adult learners, studying externally at CDU allows you to learn at your own pace through our supportive and informative virtual classrooms.

There are a range of study options such as part-time, and you can even spread your study load over three semesters a year in some courses.

Importantly, you don’t have to live interstate to take advantage of CDU’s external studies.
