Charles Darwin University
As Australias youngest and most diverse university, Charles Darwin is founded on 50 years of delivering tertiary education to the Northern Territory.
Formed through a merger between the Northern Territory University, Alice Springs-based Centralian College and the Menzies School of Health Research, Charles Darwin University offers a fresh approach to training, education, research and knowledge application. It aspires to be recognised internationally as a centre of excellence in Indigenous and cross cultural knowledge, tropical knowledge (relevant to the wet/dry tropics) and desert knowledge.
As a multi-sector education provider, the university can provide unique pathways for students, from school-based vocational training through to advanced research degrees.
Our students are drawn from the local area, across Australia and overseas, consisting of Indigenous and international students, school leavers and mature age people returning to study. Charles Darwin University is the largest tertiary institution in the Territory.
