About The University
The Australian National University needs no introduction, as it is consistently ranked as the best university in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere. Boasting four Nobel Prize-winners, ANU’s aim is to advance knowledge through excellence in research, education and community engagement, taking its place amongst the international elite. The university is renowned for both innovative teaching and high-quality research, but its reputation does not stop there—it also regularly plays host to international delegations and diplomatic missions. Most major disciplines are offered across seven colleges providing intensive research-led teaching.
As Australia's capital city, Canberra boasts the cosmopolitan character and extensive facilities of larger cities whilst its relatively small population of around 325,000 lends itself to a relaxed, sociable lifestyle. The average age in Canberra is just 34; most residents are young, socially mobile and well-educated with around 20 percent born overseas, creating a vibrant, diverse atmosphere for students. Both culture and sports are well catered for, with a number of national museums, galleries and libraries hosted alongside the Australian Institute of Sport and the Canberra Stadium.
