Why choose CDU?

A dual-sector university

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is a dual-sector university, which means we offer a full spectrum of education and training opportunities in Higher Education (HE) and Vocational Education and Training (VET).

Quality learning and teaching

The Office of Learning, Teaching and Community Engagement supports the University in providing a properly coordinated institution-level approach to:

. academic quality assurance and planning
. professional development in teaching and learning
. professional production of learning materials and adoption of learning technologies. 

To create quality learning and teaching, CDU ensures there is more personalised attention given to students with its ability to offer smaller-class sizes and a low student-to-teacher ratio – about one teacher to every 15-20 students.
