Charles Darwin University (CDU) has sent out over 1,900 offers to students to study at CDU in 2023.

Charles Darwin University (CDU) has made 1,951 offers to students to study undergraduate and postgraduate courses at CDU in 2023.

This year, there were restrictions on the number of Nursing places available. Excluding Nursing from the data, CDU has increased offers from 1,784 in 2022 to 1,835 in 2023.

Today over 500 offers were made, with students receiving the good news that they have been offered a place at CDU for 2023.

A total of 1,399 undergraduate and 552 postgraduate places have been made for entry in semester one, 2023. 

Health and education courses proved to be the most popular amongst domestic undergraduate students and in the postgraduate space, there was also a high interest in health courses and creative therapy courses.

CDU’s international student numbers are also on the rise with double the number of applications on the same time last year with acceptances also up by 80 per cent.

CDU Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Hilary Winchester said the University is thrilled to see so many offers made to students both domestically and internationally.  

“I am delighted to see that our student numbers are growing, both domestically and internationally especially after the last few years of the pandemic,” Professor Winchester said.

“This growth in student numbers is a positive for the Territory as well, as students are often a great source of part-time employment whilst studying, and they contribute towards the skilled workforce upon graduating.”

“Our increase in international student numbers is a great sign that students from right across the globe are interested in studying with CDU,” she said.   

In 2023, CDU will also welcome a strong cohort of First Nations students with over 100 offers being made to First Nations students.

“Once again CDU is leading the way on attracting First Nations students. We are so proud that we can welcome our First Nations students who are fantastic role models and make great contributions to the university,” Professor Winchester said.

For students who have not yet received an offer, there is still time to apply, and any interested prospective students are encouraged to call CDU student central.
