Notre Dame is a private Catholic University, extending from the West Coast of Australia in the beautiful and historic City of Fremantle, to the North-West town of Broome and across the continent to the heart of Sydney.
We embrace the ancient and esteemed traditions of Catholic Universities in Europe, North America and 2000 years of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. We welcome people of all faiths or none at all. As an academic community, we welcome open and rigorous enquiry, debate and discussion.
We have an enrolment of over 12,000 students and offer a comprehensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Our student experience, employment and graduate outcomes are among the very best in Australia.
Notre Dame has several clinical schools, with one located in the Diocese of Parramatta – the Hawkesbury Clinical School at Hawkesbury Health Service which is a 127-bed facility providing both public and private health services in Sydney’s North West. The hospital offers 24-hour emergency, medical, surgical, maternity, neonatal, palliative, intensive and coronary care as well as diagnostic services, simulation space, lecture theatre and tutorial rooms. Students at the School have plenty of opportunities to participate in patient care with hands-on management of patients under supervision from the consultants on the ward.
