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.

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;
