Changes to the CDU website on Monday 26 February 2018

Our CDU website is currently going through a redevelopment process, and very shortly you will start to notice changes in the way our website looks. Phase 1, Study with CDU will be launched on Monday 26 February 2018.We are redeveloping our website with future students top-of-mind, and we are prioritising their preferred content and search behaviours.

The intention is to help students easily find the most appropriate program of study, and at the same time get a strong sense of what it’s like to study at CDU. We are cognisant that our future students do much of their searching on their mobile phones, and this website has been built to be responsive across all platforms. The redevelopment of the website will occur in phases and requires the consolidation of vast amounts of content.

Over the next few months, we will be working with subject matter experts to ensure the content is current and reflects any recent changes. Our goal is to create a website that provides a better experience for users and is much more closely aligned with our new world ambitions.We will be using analytics to closely monitor site behaviour, and we intend to make continual improvements based on this data.  Thank you for your support to date and your ongoing support.
