Australian Catholic University
Australian Catholic University (ACU) was opened on 1 January 1991 following the amalgamation of four Catholic tertiary institutions in eastern Australia:
These institutions had their origins in the mid-1800s,when religious orders and institutes became involved in preparing teachers for Catholic schools and, later, nurses for Catholic hospitals.Through a series of amalgamations, relocations, transfers of responsibilities and diocesan initiatives, more than 20 historical entities have contributed to the creation of the University. Every year we award hundreds of scholarships to future and current ACU students. But some scholarships remain un awarded.Open to current and future ACU students,
ACU’s seven campuses
Adelaide Campus (St Francis of Assisi), Ballarat Campus (Aquinas) ,Brisbane Campus (McAuley at Banyo) Canberra Campus (Signadou) ,Melbourne Campus (St Patrick’s) ,North Sydney Campus ,(MacKillop) ,Strathfield Campus (Mount Saint Mary) ,Rome Campus.
