We’d like to welcome you
We'd like you to be part of our community where we not only teach but learn from you.
We’ll work together to create a path to turn your passion into a profession and unlock a new world of opportunities for you with our connections to community, industry and government.
Like our namesake Charles Darwin, we think differently. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. Your diverse background is what we’re looking for. We believe we’re made bolder and richer by the unique experiences and fresh perspectives that you bring.
We believe you make CDU.
The connected university
We believe you should be able to connect to university, no matter where you're from. At CDU, you'll connect to so much more than education.
You will find like-minded students in friendly, inclusive environments, both online and on campus. You can feel supported to learn on Country with First Nations knowledges woven into your courses. You'll have the opportunity to take part in practical, work-integrated learning, linking your studies to your life after graduation.
And as a leading university for graduate employment outcomes, we can help you connect to your future.
Flexible online study
At CDU, we know the importance of balancing work, life and study. That’s why we offer most of our courses online or on campus with the ability to switch between part-time and full-time study to suit your needs.
With over 30 years of experience in distance and online learning, we understand the needs of online students and have the expertise and resources to deliver flexible, fully accredited degrees.
Benefit from our supportive and engaging virtual learning environment where you can interact, ask questions and talk to your lecturers and fellow students, building your professional networks while you study.
With on-demand lecture content, mobile accessibility and 24/7 support for studying when, where and how it suits you, you can spend more time connecting to what matters most.
