School’s Comments:

Institution:  The only Catholic liberal arts college in Australia, Campion puts a strong emphasis on cultivating a tight-knit community of learning, faith and human flourishing. Located in Western  Sydney, Campion offers a uniquely  integrated and fully accredited Bachelor of Arts in the liberal arts. 

Through the study of history, literature, philosophy and theology, studied in tandem in a chronological timeline from antiquity to the present day, Campion students are taught to think critically, argue rationally and develop the creative, analytical and research skills that are foundational in any vocation and increasingly sought after in many careers. While many university students feel like just another number in a crowd, at Campion everyone knows your name. 

Rather than viewing university education as mere job training, Campion strives to embody St. John Henry Newman’s prescription for a university education in forming the entire person: spiritual, intellectual, social and vocational. We have an active college community, which runs numerous social, sporting and chaplaincy societies and events throughout the academic year, including the popular Campion College Annual Ball.

 A private institution not run by the Church, Campion is grounded in the Catholic faith and exercises faithfulness to Church teaching, helping students live out their faith in all areas of life. 

On-campus accommodation is segregated, male and female, across all dorms and residences. Individuals are not permitted to enter rooms of the opposite sex, and access to living spaces is limited. Each residential area is assigned a residential tutor, a senior student of the college who plans social activities and assists students with settling into college life. All residential tutors are under the direct supervision of the senior residential tutor, who is a member of staff.
