Inspired by one of the greatest Catholic universities in the world, the University of Notre Dame in the United States, Notre Dame Australia brings to Australian education the vibrant traditions of a Catholic university together with the rich history of one of the world's premier universities.
The University of Notre Dame, Australia, located in the heart of Fremantle, has the unique quality of being a 'Town University'. Present and past merge into a rich mix of cultures and traditions typical of the older university towns of Europe. Strolling through arcades and streets bursting with markets, coffee shops and restaurants specialising in all styles of cuisine and within reach of some of the best beaches in Australia, it is easy to see why the University's founders chose such a magnificent location for the beautiful campus.
Notre Dame aims to remain a small, private university committed to ensure that students receive a personalised, high quality education. It offers a caring and friendly learning environment dedicated to providing courses that are challenging, relevant and responsive to student, employer and community needs.
The University attracts students from a range of cultural and religious backgrounds, which produces an exciting and vital atmosphere on campus. Students are drawn from such countries as South-East Asia, North Asia, Africa, Europe, South America and the USA.
