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;

Read Australian Catholic University - ACU Reviews

Positives: The course provided me fundamental professional development as a practicing teacher. It allowed me to also further network with industry professionals and conduct important research which was vital to student learning outcomes

Negatives: The course had rigid subject selection and there were no choices for electives. The course also had compulsory lecture/seminar dates which as a course for practicing teachers, was not ideal.

My advice to future students is: Potential students should consider this subject should they wish to further advance their career progression, improve student learning outcomes and/or receive professional development regarding contemporary leadership in education.
