More about Australian Catholic University

Australia Catholic University or ACU, has 7 campuses in total across Australia. Sydney has two (North Sydney & Strathfield), then there's Melbourne, Adelaide, Ballarat, Brisbane and Canberra.

The majority of our Australia Catholic University reviews come from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane campuses but the courses are diverse. These include teaching/education, health (paramedicine, nursing, physiotherapy), business, arts & law.

Here are some general insights of the uni, based on student reviews:
For courses with placements, the placements can be incredibly beneficial, but be prepared to travel for them and try to organise them as early as you can;
Try to make a good impression if you're on placement;
Be prepared for the study load required, so manage your time (particularly for education, law and health courses);
Ask questions and get help from lecturers and other students;

Positives: I enjoy the classes and the lecturers are really good. The topics are also interesting and relevant to what I want to do after uni

Negatives: It can be hard to balance uni work with a job and social life. Also, if you wanted to try a larger range of units, there’s only two general electives in the course

My advice to future students is: Don’t leave assignments to the last minute and make sure you enjoy what you study because that’s the best motivation
