You make CDU

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 communities, industries and government.

Your diverse background will help us break new ground and your fresh perspective is what we’re looking for. We believe we're made bolder and richer by your unique experiences, perspectives and opinions that you bring.

We believe, you make CDU.

We think differently

Like our namesake Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change and challenge conventions. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We’re about what you leave with, rather than what you began with, what you give to the world, not what you take.

That is the CDU difference.

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 in distance and online learning, we understand the needs of online students and have the experience and resources need 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.

And with 24/7 support available, lecture content on demand and mobile accessibility, you can study when, where and how it suits you.
