Charles Darwin University (CDU) is based in the capital city of Darwin at the heart of Australia's tropical north. It is the Australian university located most closely to the Asia-Pacific region.
CDU has all the advantages of a dual-sector university including flexibility in study options – as a recognised leader in online education – creativity, adaptability and freedom to embrace the history and traditions of First Australians and the multitude of nations represented by our international student population.
Charles Darwin University is a multi-sector university which provides training and education to more than 21,000 students across its eight campuses and centres in the Northern Territory and Australia. We have strong governance and leadership to support these functions.
At Charles Darwin University we have a passion and a vision to use our skills and knowledge to help shape a brighter future. Through Connect Discover Grow we intend to become outstanding achievers across all areas of our core business.
Located in the remote far north of Australia, research is central to the purpose of Charles Darwin University, and closely tied to the needs of the Northern Territory and the Territory’s immediate region: Timor Leste, Eastern Indonesia and the Arafura Sea.
