The Notre Dame difference

It's no secret that our students consistently rate us number one in WA for their educational experience. Plus our graduates have the highest median starting salary and employment rate in the State. And now Australia's employers have joined the narrative. In the latest federal government Employer Satisfaction survey of 4,000 employers nationwide, Notre Dame came out tops in WA with an overall satisfaction rating of 89. 1%, well above the national average.

We put it down to the Notre Dame difference, an exceptional educational experience that sets our students up for life – and a great career.


From the first hand shake at interview to congratulating you at graduation, you are a person not a number at Notre Dame. Our deliberately small class, lecture and tutorial sizes mean that your lecturers and fellow students will get to know you as an individual. You will learn more and be heard more. That's why Notre Dame is #1 in WA for Student Support.


We believe that higher education should prepare you for a rich and fulfilling life and give you a real edge when it comes to getting the job you always wanted. At Notre Dame our Core Curriculum units in Philosophy, Theology and Ethics encourage you to think creatively and critically…to think Big.

Thinking Big will set you apart in your career. Just look at the results of the most recent 2017 Federal Government Employer Satisfaction Survey in which Notre Dame is rated #1 in WA. Here's more on why employers value Notre Dame graduates.


Through Notre Dame's Study Abroad and Experience the World programs you can combine your studies and travels on exchange or on a study tour for a unique learning experience.
