Australian Catholic University (ACU) engages the Catholic Intellectual Tradition to bring a distinct perspective to higher education. 

ACU students can attend an overseas university in more than 16 countries, complete international internships, and work in community programs around the world – all while receiving credit towards their degree.

ACU is Australia's leading Catholic university and is supported by more than 2,000 years of Catholic intellectual tradition. As a member of the International Federation of Catholic Universities, we are devoted to communicating truth in every field of knowledge through teaching and research, as well as promoting the dignity of all people and the common good.

The Core units emphasise critical judgment, clear expression, ethical decision-making and concern for others, as individuals and as a community.

A key aspect of the program is giving students the opportunity to learn beyond the walls of the university classroom. Students have the chance to apply to spend three weeks in Florence, Italy, over the European summer in June and July - with additional destination options added every year.
