Professor Giselle Byrnes, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Faculty of Law, Education, Business and Arts

A very warm welcome to the vibrant and creative community comprising the Faculty of Law, Education, Business and Arts at Charles Darwin University.

In a rapidly-changing global economy and information-rich world, this is the place to be if you want

to realise your creative potential and learn how to benefit from that creativity by undertaking study

that will change you and change your world.

Just a few of the accredited professional programs we offer include: accounting, arts, business, communications, cultural studies, economics, fine arts, graphic design, history, hospitality,

Indigenous studies, law, marketing, management, music, multi-media, politics, and much more.

A number of these programs are offered both face-to-face and online through our Fleximode


Better still, as a comprehensive university, we can take you from wherever you are: as an adult student returning to education having not completed year 12, as a school leaver direct from year 12, beginning an apprenticeship, and so on. And, we will help you get to wherever you want to go: from certificate I through to diplomas and advanced diplomas, bachelors, masters and the PhD (Australian Qualifications Framework).

For international students and the many Australian students coming to CDU from outside Darwin, our student-focused services include excellent student accommodation on our main Casuarina campus, features such as 24-hour high speed internet access, and a range of excellent facilities, plus you are only two minutes walk from the library and most teaching facilities. And after class, you are a short walk away from one of Darwin's stunning beaches.

Our staff are highly qualified and many have top professional experience and outstanding qualifications. With small class sizes, state-of-the art facilities and opportunities for employment or work-based experience, you will find in Charles Darwin University a creative community where learning is our core business and the focus is on our students’ learning experiences.

Finally, while we have many campuses and a strong mission to serve the entire Northern Territory, our main campus in Darwin is located at one of Australia's most beautiful capital coastal cities. The cosmopolitan mix of our population and our art, culture and music are as welcoming and beautiful as our famous beaches and sunsets. And, if a walk along the beach is too serene for you, the adventure 'outback' tourism of Kakadu National Park awaits you just an hour's drive away.


So, please join our 'Learning Community' and working together, let's make a difference and change our world.
