Our campuses

ACU has seven campuses across Australia, including Adelaide, Ballarat, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney (North Sydney and Strathfield).

BE RECOGNISED FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE COMMUNITY

EAP applications are now open

ACU looks for students who, like us, understand the importance of working toward the common good and have a willingness to make a contribution to their communities (see examples of community involvement here).

We believe these students should be recognised for their contribution and leadership potential, and this is why we grant them status as Early Achievers.

One of the biggest benefits of the program is that successful applicants receive an offer well ahead of the usual tertiary admissions announcements. You can apply if you are currently in Year 12, if you are a non-recent school leaver (such as a mature-age student). Both domestic and international students can apply if you hope to enrol in a course at ACU.

Open – Monday 10 August

Close – Monday 19 October

Outcome advice – end of November
