About the University The seed of CDU dates back to Darwin in the 1950s.With no offices or permanent staff, adult education classes in typing, shorthand and French were first conducted in school premises and taught by teachers working outside of normal hours.Today, Territorians no longer have to send their children away from home for a University education. From 2011 students, for the first time ever, need not leave the Territory to become doctors.CDU’s research focus includes the Menzies School of Health Research which is improving indigenous health outcomes in tropical and Central Australia.CDU is the only Australian university to offer the full spectrum of education options from senior secondary, through to VET, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.Students from around the world study at CDU with more than 8,000 of the 22,000 students enrolled from interstate and overseas.
