Charles Darwin University

Welcome to Charles Darwin University!

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is welcoming students from more than 50 countries around the world in Australia's tropical north and central desert regions. Results from the International Student Barometer showed that over 90% of international students at CDU were happy with their education experience there.

Charles Darwin University offers a school of true character and richness, with all the advantages of a new-generation, multi-sector university: flexibility, freedom, creativity, and vigour. 

International students at CDU may choose to study at one of 3 campuses: Darwin's Casuarina campus, Palmerston's campus just south of Darwin, and now Sydney's campus through CDU's collaboration with the Macquarie Education Group Australia. The multicultural, cosmopolitan Darwin campus is CDU's largest, nestled in a tropical city immersed in Aboriginal tradition, and which also has close connections to Southeast Asia.

International students who do not want to spend their entire academic experience at Charles Darwin University may choose to study there for 1 or 2 semesters. There are also a number of scholarships available to internationals, including the AusAID, Australian Leadership Award, and Accommodation scholarships.
