About Australian Catholic University and Scholarship

An Australian public university called Australian Catholic University (ACU). Additionally to maintaining a school in Rome, it operates seven campuses throughout Australia. Australia is home to seven campuses of ACU, including those in Ballarat, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, and Sydney (Blacktown, North Sydney, and Strathfield), as well as Leadership Centers in Adelaide and Townsville. In partnership with the Catholic University of America, which is based in Rome, Italy, the university launched the Rome Centre in 2015.

The Australian Catholic University National Students’ Association (ACUNSA), which represents students both individually and collectively, is a national student organization that includes student representation councils on each ACU campus.


Students also participate in Australia’s biggest annual multisport event, the Australian Institution Games, which the institution also organizes each year.

The ACU Centre for Liturgy Postgraduate Scholarship was created in 2016 to give a postgraduate theology student who has shown a continued interest in liturgical studies and/or sacramental theology the opportunity to study one 600-level course in liturgy or sacraments at ACU.
