Program Highlights:

Nazareth's partnership with Australian Catholic University (ACU) offers a choice of study at one of four campuses: Brisbane, Melbourne, North Sydney and Strathfield. Each campus allows a close working relationship between students and faculty, with smaller classes enabling academic staff to give individual attention to students. In addition, students have the opportunity to undertake professional placements and volunteer work experiences in their field of study. 

ACU offers a wide range of courses in the following disciplines: arts and sciences, business and marketing, education, health, and social sciences.

"Vivid Sydney is a festival of lights when the city is transformed by artists and music. Huge light projections were cast upon the iconic Opera House, making it come alive with all kinds of colors, shapes, and patterns. Being able to experience this was absolutely amazing; I wish I could go back and do it again!"
