Charles Darwin University
In the spirit of our namesake, Charles Darwin, the naturalist, geologist and father of modern evolutionary theory, Charles Darwin University (CDU) places great emphasis on innovative study and research that will change the world and improve people’s lives.
Today we have over 22 000 students enrolled in Higher Education, Research and Vocational Education and Training (VET) spread across eight campuses and centres in the Northern Territory, as well as in Melbourne and Sydney.

As well as gaining a qualification, CDU believes that every graduate should acquire universal skills, qualities and understanding regardless of their disciplines.
