    Prolific university of study

    The Australian National University (ANU) has provided me with an education that is nothing short of extraordinary. My experience at ANU has been genuinely transformative because of the university’s steadfast dedication to academic quality as well as its lovely campus and multicultural community.

    The instructors at ANU are not just professionals in their professions, but they also really love what they do. They promote critical thinking, and they offer assistance outside of the classroom. My academic development has greatly benefited from their advice.

    The campus looks lovely against the backdrop of Australia’s capital. Modern libraries, modern technology, and a wealth of research possibilities foster a culture of study and discovery.

    The international diversity of the student body at ANU encourages cross-cultural learning and a global perspective. There is always something fascinating going on on and off campus thanks to the university’s extensive offering of clubs, groups, and extracurricular activities.

    I am honored to be a member of this thriving and intellectually stimulating group as an ANU student. Academic rigor and personal development go hand in hand here. To anyone looking for a top-notch education and a very enriching university experience, I heartily suggest ANU.

    Great learning environment

    So far, I’ve had a great time at ANU. The staff and lecturers are quite knowledgeable, and they have set up numerous support structures to aid in learning both on-campus and online. The social part of education might be challenging while living so far from campus, but there are numerous organizations and societies to join, and some even provide online social events. Although there are a variety of facilities, some of the older buildings are frequently claustrophobic and technologically unprepared for particular activities. Nevertheless, ANU is constantly enhancing and increasing its facilities. Overall, ANU is a fantastic institution, and I can’t wait to return there next semester.

    The Canberra College Experience

    As a university located in the nation’s quiet and sparsely populated capital, studying at the ANU is a unique university experience for most of us living in Australia. With most students being from interstate or overseas, the ANU experience is marked by its ‘on campus college culture’ and the move to living in share-houses with university friends in later years. In this way, it’s a great way to experience independence and lasting friendships made through the shared realities of ‘first time out of home’ responsibilities!

    While the campus life itself is somewhat lacking – in part due to the fact that most students will return to their dorms, there is an easygoing joy to living in a city dominated by students. Grocery shopping and nights out tend to be opportunities to bump into classmates, and there are plenty of spaces for both extroverted gatherings and introverted recharging.

    Academic support in some departments and mental health services are somewhat lacking. However, there is a broad and flexible range of degrees available to students, and it’s easy to switch degrees according to your experiences and shifting interests (as I have done many a time!)

    One particular plus point of the ANU is their Year in Asia program, which allows students studying a language to do a year abroad (I’m spending a year in Korea right now!). The department which runs it – the College of Asia & Pacific, are fantastic, and the global exchange team is also very responsive and helpful! There are no strict requirements to this program, bar the continued study of your language of choice, and it allows you to broaden your academic fields and cultural experiences by living and studying at a leading university in Asia.

    The ANU also has an internship program (ANIP) which, given the university’s proximity and connections to the Australian government, offers students an opportunity to include an internship experience in their degree.

    In my final semester now, my time at the ANU has been long and winding, filled with its fair share of ups and downs, but it has been one of the most enriching and growth-filled experiences of my life. I’ve learnt a lot, not just in my studies, but also about life and who I want to be – and I hope your university experience will offer you the same.

    Australian National University Overall

    Attending the Australian National University was one of the best decisions I could’ve made for myself coming straight out of highschool in 2020. When deciding universities I definitely valued a welcoming, multi-diverse and engaging university culture which is exactly what ANU offered me. Living on campus, the culture was amazing, you immerse yourself with students from around the globe and have the opportunity to put yourself outside of your comfort zone which I felt I definitely did. I could not recommend this university enough however although academics wise, they offered an extensive range of courses as part of their Arts programme, I wish they could have included more creative subjects such as media, public relations etc. Anu predominately does not focus and cater for creative subjects and typically centres around law, psychology, politics. I would’ve loved to pair creative courses with my psychology degree!

    A review

    Various scholarships are available but Canberra is an expensive city. Experiences are quite cohort dependent and the flipped classroom model is becoming increasingly common. ANU has many libraries and available computers for work.

    Online exams

    There are many complications with online exams, as the method itself adds extra obstacles that increase stress in comparison to in-person exams, eg scanning work. Technology issues also hinder many students often results in deferred exams which are set often at the end of the semester or start of the next year or semester, creating extra stress. I would suggest making differed exams closer to the original exam date where possible.

    Law and Politics, Philosophy and Economics

    Law and Politics, Philosophy and Economics is a double degree you can study at the ANU. It is a fantastic course that combines a legal understanding with a broader insight into different elements of society. The programme is 5 years long at a minimum.

    There are a number of mandatory minimum courses during the first 2 years of the degree. This reduces the flexibility offered to students but is designed to give a base understanding of the different areas covered in each course. These mandatory courses are introductory and less interesting than electives, but upon their completion, a number of other classes are offered that allow students to target areas of their particular interest.

    I have found that while these degrees are not directly complementary in terms of the courses they have in common, there is a significant benefit to studying them together in terms of understanding how society is structured from a socio-economic and legal basis.

    The main negative of the degree is that there is a lack of information provided about what the courses actually entail. Moreover, the courses are restrictive initially in what they offer.

    Individual classes vary in terms of what they offer and how good they are. Generally, the courses are high quality with tutors often being former students or professionals in the various fields being taught. This means that real-world and university experience is offered to students as they complete their studies.

    ANU - has great staff and wellbeing

    I have really enjoyed my time at ANU so far. The lecturers and staff have amazing expertise, and they have put many support systems in place to help in both online and on-campus learning. Living so far away from campus does have its challenges, especially when it comes to the social aspect of school, but there are many clubs and societies to join, and some do have online social events. The facilities are varied, with some of the older buildings often being cramped and technologically ill-equipped for certain activities, but ANU is constantly expanding and improving its facilities. Overall, ANU is a great school and I am excited to go back next semester.
