No.1 Australian university offers a close-knit, friendly campus

Australian National University, based in Australia’s capital Canberra, was ranked 1st nationally by the 2015/16 QS World University Rankings and is very popular with study abroad students. It is the only Australian university in the International Alliance of Research Universities.

ANU is one of Australia’s smaller universities in terms of student numbers with about 17,000 students, 4,700 of whom are international students. This facilitates small class sizes and very active campus life.  It is the perfect campus if you want access to a wide array of courses and opportunities but you do not want to get lost in a big city. It is located between the Canberra city center and the bush lands and Black Mountain.

If you’re interested in courses on international relations, economics, environmental science, and the fine arts you will find particularly challenging and enlightening course offerings with flexible curricula. A world-renowned faculty in Southeast Asian Studies teaches many courses in the languages and cultures of the region.

Studying abroad in Australia might be the best learning experience I've ever had. ”

  • Outside of the classroom, the residential nature of ANU, with many students in on-campus accommodation, provides a wonderful opportunity for integration with Australian and other international students.

  • Canberra is a vibrant multicultural city with many free art galleries, museums and national sites such as the Parliament House and the War Memorial. 

  • There is an ANU Student Mentoring program to help you settle in and get the most out of the experience.
