Study centre


Located in the heart of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, Charles Darwin University's Jabiru centre is a hub for training and students within Jabiru and the surrounding areas of Arnhem Land and Kakadu.

Jabiru centre

Our Jabiru centre provides a central base of connectivity for students, with students regularly dropping in for support, information, a quiet place to study, and access to the internet. We can also help you if you have any queries about CDU TAFE, higher education, or need support or advice while studying. In most cases, you can choose to study internally, externally, or as a mixed-mode student. 

Vocational Education and Training courses taking place in Jabiru are held in modern, connected, airconditioned classrooms, and the student common room is also set up as a comfortable place to study, or connect with other regional students.

Although the centre has no student accommodation, there are alternatives for students in the vicinity of the town. Please call us if you have any queries about accommodation. 

The Jabiru centre is located in the centre of town at the NT Government's Training Centre.
