Avondale University College

Australia, New South Wales

Part of one of the world’s largest Christian school systems, known as the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the Avondale University College was established in 1897. The institute offers students courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as vocational courses. Students have the freedom to pick a course in a range of subject areas, including Arts, Business, Teaching, Nursing, Ministry and Theology and Outdoor Leadership among many others. Due to the institution’s affiliation with the Seventh-day Adventist education system, students are required to take a few basic modules revolving around the importance of Christianity and its impact on lives.

Campus Life

The institution has spanned its operations over two campuses, the Lake Macquarie campus, located in Cooranbong, New South Wales, is the main campus. The second campus is in Wahroonga, Sydney, and is located at the Sydney Adventist Hospital, and therefore is the primary campus of the Nursing school. At the main campus, students have the option to reside on-campus to experience the best of life at the institute. This is particularly enhanced by the Student Associations, which organise a host of events for students, to encourage the festering of a communal bond. Sport and Fitness are also taken care of, with students being eligible to participate in a range of team sports and represent the university at competitions. A number of amenities such as Eateries, Sports Facilities and Bookshops ensure that students are able to make the most of the university experience.
