Charles Darwin University is unique. No other single Australian university serves such a large area of the continent, in such a remote location and with such a small population to sustain it.
While the Northern Territory covers around 16 percent of Australia, 30 percent of whom were Indigenous compared with around 3 percent of the general Australian population.
The only university based in the Northern Territory, CDU is a dual sector university. We are the most northerly Australian university, literally on Asia’s doorstep. Closer in many respects to the vast populations of Asia than to the southern Australian states.
