Australian Catholic University (ACU) was opened on 1 January 1991 following the amalgamation of four Catholic tertiary institutions in eastern Australia:
Study isn't just about learning. It's also about contributing to a greater purpose. Crafting a meaningful career. Making an impact, for good.
Our courses will equip you to make today's ambitions tomorrow's reality. All you need to do is bring your curiosity, your desire to make an impact, and your past experiences. We'll supply the strong industry ties, a focus on practical learning, and a commitment to helping you develop as a whole person.
At ACU, our research and enterprise activities embrace the full life cycle of research, from knowledge creation to its translation and application towards real world outcomes that provide social, cultural and economic benefit.
As a careers advisor, you hold futures in your hands. We want to help you guide your students into the best future for them – so here you’ll find all of the information you need about our courses, admission pathways and more.
Studying is rewarding and worthwhile, but sometimes you may need help. Our student services can help you navigate your way through some of the more challenging parts of uni life.
Our Residential Life Program engages students from a range of backgrounds, with equally diverse aspirations and support needs. So no matter your experience or interests, you won’t be left out.
One of your greatest assets in your quest for scholarly success is getting to know your library. Whether you’re browsing our online databases on a laptop at home or searching the stacks for that book you need, our campus libraries are powerful tools for teaching, learning and research.
ACU has three on-campus medical centres in Brisbane, Melbourne and North Sydney. They offer comprehensive, high-quality healthcare services to ACU students, staff and the local community.
Across our campuses, you’ll find public art galleries exhibiting student work, moot courts where our law students hone their arguments and prepare for international competitions, and health science simulation labs where students get a full range of experiences before they go on placements.
Our student associations are the lifeblood of ACU Student Life. They are run for students, by students and ensure that your voice is heard at the highest levels of the university.
There are three types of student association at ACU:
Each of these groups has a particular role in supporting and representing our student bodies.
