|Type of Institution:||University|
ANU is consistently ranked among the top universities in the world.
Our ranking and reputation draws students and staff from across Australia and around the globe, creating a vibrant and diverse community where everyone can feel at home.
Around 5,000 students live on campus in catered or self-catered residential halls and lodges; a much greater proportion than at any other Australian university.
Both live-in and day students take full advantage of our cafes and bistros for socialising, sport and recreational facilities for healthy timeout, and of course our state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities.
We continue to future-proof our facilities through renewal and investment. For example, in partnership with the Australian Government, we’ll soon add a National Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Precinct to our $220M Science Precinct which opened in 2014.
Our academic staff are world leaders in their fields. They don’t teach from textbooks, they write them. They lead scientific discoveries, make technological advances and unearth our secret histories.
ANU is known for its high staff-to-student ratio, so you will get to know your teachers and they will get to know you too.
At ANU, our award-winning and innovative degree programs put you in the driver’s seat and prepare you for jobs of the future. We are ranked #1 in Australia and #20 in the world for graduate employability (QS Graduate Employability Ranking 2017-18). When you graduate, your education, experiences and achievements at ANU will help you stand out in a global jobs market.
You can choose from single degrees, Flexible Double Degrees, Flexible Vertical Double Degrees and research-intensive degrees; all designed so you can tailor your studies to suit your strengths, passions, and career aspirations.
As Australia’s only national university, we have unique relationships with government, business and other leading institutions around the globe. This gives you opportunities to gain real-world experience through internships in Australia and overseas, such as the Washington internship in the US Congress for political science students.
ANU is the only Australian member of the International Alliance of Research Universities with our partners Cambridge, Oxford, Yale, Peking, Tokyo, Cape Town and Copenhagen universities, ETH Zurich, the National University of Singapore, and Berkeley, California.
Adding an international dimension to your studies is easy with exchange and study abroad opportunities available through over 170 ANU partners worldwide.
