Australian Catholic University

Australian Catholic University (ACU) is a young university focused on embedding excellence.

ACU's faculties and institutes are focused on producing world-leading research in the priority areas of education, health, theology and philosophy.

In a world of mass production, ACU stands for meaningful education, rewarding research, and life-changing community engagement. 

Its mission and values form the core of who it is as a Catholic organisation. 

Discover our history, structure, and journey to be a leader in research and teaching – a goal we’re already achieving as a top 2% world-ranked university.

These institutions originated in the mid-1800s when religious orders and institutes became involved in preparing teachers for Catholic schools and, later, nurses for Catholic hospitals.

Through a series of amalgamations, relocations, transfers of responsibilities and diocesan initiatives, more than 20 historical entities have contributed to the creation of the University.

The University is a member of the publicly-funded national system of Australian universities, the Association of Commonwealth Universities and the International Federation of Catholic Universities.
