                                                  Welcome to The University of Notre Dame Australia’s 2019 Undergraduate Guide.
                                                  Within these pages, we offer you a snapshot of our very special Australian university – a university which extends from
                                                  the west coast in the beautiful and historic city of Fremantle in Western Australia, to the north-west town of Broome, and
                                                  across the continent to our Campus located in the heart of the city of Sydney.

                                                  Notre Dame is unique for a number of reasons:

                                                   ›› As Australia’s first Catholic university, Notre Dame follows the traditions and practices of Catholic higher education
                                                      which, for centuries in many countries across the world, has offered leadership in university education.
                                                   ›› We are committed to providing a personalised university education, underpinned by pastoral care and support for all
                                                      our students.
                                                   ›› Our admissions process focuses on each applicant as an individual. We use a broad-based assessment of suitability
                                                      which looks at your past achievements and your potential; we aim to assess your capacity to complete your chosen
                                                      course and to become a valuable contributing member of our community.
                                                   ›› We aim to educate you for life by giving you a broad liberal arts base through our Core Curriculum units, coupled with
                                                      a powerful combination of theoretical knowledge and practical and professional skills in your chosen degree.
                                                  I encourage you to study this Guide and invite you to contact our staff if you have any questions.
