Charles Darwin University (CDU) is a dual-sector university, which means we offer a full spectrum of education and training opportunities in Higher Education (HE) and Vocational Education and Training (VET).
The Office of Learning, Teaching and Community Engagement supports the University in providing a properly coordinated institution-level approach to:
academic quality assurance and planning
professional development in teaching and learning
Professional production of learning materials and adoption of learning technologies.
To create quality learning and teaching, CDU ensures there is more personalised attention given to students with its ability to offer smaller-class sizes and a low student-to-teacher ratio – about one teacher to every 15-20 students.
More than 120 years ago, Banjo Paterson described the Northern Territory as a “vast wild land, full of huge possibilities”.
And he was right.
So how did a relatively small population, spread sparsely across an area, one–fifth the land mass of Australia, with little educational resources to speak of, turn those possibilities into a reality?
By creating a study environment where the freedom exists for people to evolve their lives.
Today this environment is captured at Charles Darwin University (CDU).
A major educational hub catering for students in the town and in Central Australia’s remote communities.
Located in the heart of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, Subjects offered include conservation and land management, information technology, community services, business, horticulture, and general education.
CDU delivers a number of courses locally, and supports all Katherine students in their studies via local administrative support.
International students can study selected Charles Darwin University courses in Melbourne through a partnership between Charles Darwin University and the Australian Technical and Management College (ATMC).
CDU Sydney now offers undergraduate and postgraduate business courses for international students in Sydney.
