The University of Notre Dame Australia
The University of Notre Dame Australia was founded through an Act of the Parliament of Western Australia in December 1989. Since its inception, Notre Dame has become a leader in higher education and now boasts over 11,000 students enrolled across its three campuses in Fremantle, Sydney and Broome. As outlined in the University’s Objects, Notre Dame provides an excellent standard of pastoral care for students and is one of the highest rated universities in Australia with a leading graduate employment rate of 79% (well above the national average of 69%). It has sought to be a university which specialises in excellence of undergraduate education. Its focus is the education and training of young people for entry to the major professions: medicine, law, teaching, nursing, accounting and finance, physiotherapy, counselling, health sciences and the priesthood. A range of Vocational Education and Training courses (VET) are also offered on the Broome Campus in Community Services, Education, Health and Nursing. The University is especially noteworthy for its role as a leader in the great traditional professional disciplines of Health and Education, so long associated with the mission of the Church in Australia.
