New and returning students converged on Charles Darwin University campuses and study centres across the country last week as part of Orientation Week.

Hundreds attended a range of orientation activities on offer at CDU centres and campuses throughout the Northern Territory and in Sydney and Melbourne.

With more than 24,000 students expected to study in 2014, CDU continues to grow strongly and offers a fresh approach to training, education, research and knowledge application. This year will also mark 25 years of university education in the Northern Territory.

Enrolments are up on last year, with 7200 internal and external higher education students enrolled to study in Semester 1.

Enrolments in the Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science experienced a 48 per cent increase, with more than 200 enrolments. Enrolments in the Masters of Accounting (professional practice), which also is available at CDU’s Sydney and Melbourne centres, grew by 77 per cent.

Other increases included the Bachelor of Engineering up 24 per cent, Bachelor of Midwifery up 27 per cent and Bachelor of Social Work up 10 per cent with more than 150 enrolments.
