Charles Darwin University

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is a young multi-sector institution, defined by creativity, flexibility and freedom from tradition. Its hub is in multi-cultural, tropical Darwin, a relatively small city steeped in Aboriginal culture. Campus life is collegiate and friendly providing an ideal environment for study.

Tourism and Hospitality studies
Tourism is a key industry in the Northern Territory, where the heartland of indigenous culture blends with world-famous natural wonders and untouched wilderness.

CDU has fostered a mutually beneficial relationship with local tourism business that allows students to gain work placements at all levels. In return, the university supports the industry by feeding skilled and talented graduates into the workforce.

CDU specialises in providing course flexibility. Pathways between educational sectors allow students to progress according to their interests and talents, from vocational training to degree level studies, to advanced research doctorates.

This seamless course integration has attracted many international students who access the pathway at Certificate III level and progress through Diploma to degree qualifications within just four years.

Undergraduate students can select a variety of units from the Business program, and advanced standing is offered to those with existing Tourism, Hospitality and Business qualifications.

Academic Excellence
Academics at Charles Darwin University take pride in equipping future practitioners with both academic rigour and practical skills. Their industry relationships and expertise are integral to nurturing work-ready competencies that lead to high levels of student success in small business and the employment market.

Research and Industry Programs
Research is an important focus for CDU and its industry partners. Tourism and Hospitality projects are generously funded by the Northern Territory Government and its agencies, local tourism operators and privately sponsored research organisations.

The school is also member of three different Cooperative Research Centres. This active support and involvement has led to extensive publishing of research studies in industry journals chapters and refereed conference papers.

Research areas of particular strength include:
§ Tourism knowledge

Several students are currently undertaking postgraduate research programs.
