Critical thinking is embedded in every one of our degrees, teaching you to think about and question everything and take on new ideas to enrich your decisions within and beyond your future career.

Why study with us

Notre Dame is consistently judged a top performer among all universities in Australia.

The Australian Government’s latest Student Experience Survey (SES), rates Notre Dame first in Western Australia and New South Wales for Skills Development and Learner Engagement.

The latest Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) rated the university well above the national average for Overall Satisfaction, Teaching Scale, Skills Scale, Full-time Employment, Overall Employment and Median Salary. In the latest Employers Satisfaction Survey (ESS) – which asks business and industry to have its say on the quality of graduates – Notre Dame graduates topped both WA and NSW for Employability and Adaptability.

Pastoral care is at the heart of the university’s ethos – small class sizes, one-on-one contact with academic staff, athletic and mentoring programs and counselling support. Fremantle’s CareerHub and Sydney’s Beyond the Books program provide access to career, course and work-experience guidance, career prospects and directs links to employers. Tailored support programs are provided for international, interstate and regional students.
