Australian Catholic University (ACU) offers a choice of six campuses in several cities. Each campus allows a close working relationship between students and faculty, with smaller classes enabling academic staff to give individual attention to students.  In addition, students  have the opportunity to undertake professional placements and volunteer work experiences in their field of study. 

ACU offers a wide range of courses in the following disciplines: Arts and Sciences, Business and Marketing, Education, Health and Social Sciences. 

With six campuses to choose from, each city gives students the opportunity to experience a different aspect of Australian culture and environment:
