An Exciting Collaboration

The Catholic University of America and the Australian Catholic University jointly operate a campus in Rome, Italy. The collaboration brings together the leading Catholic universities in the United States and Australia in a joint academic endeavor in Rome, about two miles from Vatican City. This agreement builds upon a long-standing relationship between the two universities that has previously allowed Catholic University students to study in Australia and ACU students to study in D.C. Now students from both universities can take advantage of the unique experience of study in Rome.
