I was looking for a new university to study abroad in, and quickly identified Notre Dame as one of those. I had no doubts, and ultimately applied for the RSPO program to learn about the student experience. Right from the start, Notre Dame Australia has been an impressive community of friendly people with great infrastructure (I've never seen such quality accommodation), affordable tuition fees



I chose to study at Notre Dame Australia for my undergraduate degree because of its fast-growing, diverse community and impressive infrastructure. I was looking for a school with a comfortable accommodation and affordable tuition fees. It turns out that this school has all the above, which made it an attractive choice for me.



Notre Dame Australia has been a great place to call home as an international student.
