Description of the Australian Catholic University Melbourne

More Photos

The Australian Catholic University is a national leading institution with regard to the areas of Education in Health, Nursing, Education, Arts, and Exercise Science. Additionally, there are programs such as Social Sciences, Business and Information Technology, Philosophy, Theology, and Liberal Arts that offer an excellent education. Practical areas, in addition to the classic courses of study, are offered and made possible through co-operation with other institutions. Above all, the faculty wishes to instill in their students an underlying foundation of respect towards other cultures, religions, and traditions. So, at the institution's six locations, it is not exclusively about academics as much as it is about co-operation. On every campus students will find student facilities that offer leisure and sport activities, as well as organized events.
