Some reasons why our results are outstanding...

It's personal

As a deliberately smaller university, with approximately 12,000 students, the Notre Dame experience is a personal one. You don't get lost in the crowd. You are on a first name basis with academics and receive high levels of academic support. Also, Notre Dame has set a maximum number of 10% international students. This enables us to properly support you, and allows you to fully immerse yourself in Australian culture.

Learning to think BIG

There are many questions about the jobs of the future – what will they be and what skills will they need? What we do know is that no matter what, your success will require you to think critically and creatively. Our Core Curriculum – made up of Philosophy, Theology and Ethics – is based on the 2,000 year old Catholic intellectual tradition which for centuries has provided leadership in university education around the world.

Study with us and you will graduate with an increased ability to think, reason, question and resolve. These are skills that will give you a distinct advantage in your working life. Don’t just take our word for it though. In Australian Federal Government surveys, Notre Dame graduates achieved the highest results for 'Employer satisfaction' of any university in Sydney and Perth (
