Australia Semester Abroad

Through Cabrini’s affiliation with the University of Notre Dame, Australia (UNDA), Cabrini students have the opportunity to enroll in courses offered through any of its eight academic schools:

  • Arts and Sciences
  • Business Education
  • Education
  • Health Sciences
  • Law
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Philosophy and Theology

In addition to its regular course offerings, each school has a wide selection of classes with a strong Australian focus, including courses in such areas as Australian history and society, coastal and marine systems, and Business in Asia.

Cabrini’s program at the UNDA began in the spring semester of 2005, when nine Cabrini students embarked on a study abroad adventure which would lead them to one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative universities.

Notre Dame, founded in 1989, is a relatively new Australian private Catholic University committed to ensuring that its students receive a personalized, high-quality education.

With a beautiful campus on the Western coast of Australia, Cabrinis Australian affiliate offers a caring and friendly learning environment, providing challenging and relevant courses that are responsive to student needs within a variety of majors.

Notre Dame Australia is located in the vibrant port city of Fremantle. In a style that is typical of the older university towns of Europe, the campus is located in the very heart of the city.

  • Students walking to class can enjoy the historic streetscape and feel connected to the local Fremantle community.
  • Shops, markets, beaches, sporting facilities, museums, and galleries are all within walking distance of campus.
  • In addition, an efficient rail service connects Fremantle with Perth, the capital of Western Australia, in just thirty minutes.

Students interested in spending a semester at the University of Notre Dame, Australia, should begin the planning process by contacting Dr. Paul Wright (Asst. Provost for International Affairs; Study Abroad Coordinator) at 610.902.8270 or paul.wright@cabrini.edu. His campus office is in the Mansion, 2nd floor. Note that for semester-long study abroad programs, there is a 2.5 GPA requirement at the time of application for the experience.
