About the Scholarship:
The Australian National University (ANU) is a globally renowned institution. First in Australia, and 27th in the world, according to the QS World University Rankings in 2022. To drive Australia’s intellectual progress, the Australian Government established ANU in 1946. Students from the Australian National University (ANU) are today vital parts of society, serving in a variety of roles, from lawmakers and business executives to artists and scientists.
Innovative facilities such as the nation’s most powerful computer, laboratories and lecture halls equipped with the latest technology, and three main libraries with over two million printed and electronic volumes make the University an ideal place for bright, ambitious students to flourish. The beautiful 145-hectare campus of the Australian National University is only a ten-minute walk from the centre of Canberra. Australian capital city Canberra is a small but vibrant city nestled in some of the country’s most breathtaking natural landscapes. Student life in Canberra, a 30-minute flight from Sydney, is characterized by low pollution levels, the lowest crime rate on mainland Australia, and the greatest employment rate in the country.
The National Library, National Gallery, National Museum, and National Archives are just a few of the city’s many noteworthy national treasures, and the city never fails to astonish and delight its visitors. As a rule, ANU provides lodging for all incoming undergraduates who are not from the local area. More than 6,000 students live on campus, making up more than 20% of the student body. ANU has a total of 12 dorms for first-year students. Accommodations include laundry facilities, outdoor areas, and study rooms in either a fully-catered or self-catered setting.
Those international students who reside on campus form close friendships with their fellow students, who are also from other countries. An ever-expanding global alumni network offers guidance and opportunities for professional progress to those who have completed their degrees around the world. IARU supports internships, conferences, exchange, and the formation of joint degrees by bringing together universities that share a similar commitment and vision for teaching future leaders. There is a vibrant academic and social scene at the Australian National University. In addition to the award-winning Academic Skills and Learning Centre (ASLC), the Careers Center, childcare, and counseling services, the Disability Support Center, and health services, the International Office also houses the Postgraduate and Research Students’ Association (PRSSA), as well as the Student Information and Guidance Network (SIGN).
Internships, conferences, exchanges, and joint degrees are all made possible by the work of the IARU, which brings together universities with a similar focus on training future leaders. As a result of these collaborations, ANU has developed strong ties with a wide range of national and international organizations, including NASA and the European Union. The University makes significant investments in research activities and infrastructure in order to attract, develop, and retain world-class researchers. As a result, its academic staff is widely regarded as being among the best in the world in their respective fields. Students at the Australian National University are taught by and collaborate with active researchers at all levels of achievement. This guarantees that students receive a contemporary education that is based on learning and discovery rather than just knowledge transfer. In addition, being a member of a vibrant network of scholars with global connections opens doors to new prospects for advancement both in Australia and overseas. Following in the footsteps of its national leadership role, the Australian National University (ANU) continues to draw high-quality students from all around Australia and the world to its undergraduate, postgraduate coursework, and higher degree research programs.
Australia’s government, businesses and non-governmental organizations work together with researchers at the University of Sydney on a wide range of vital policy issues. At the Australian National University, the Crawford School of Public Policy hosts a variety of national institutes and centers in partnership with the Australian government. Students and scholars at the Australian National University (ANU) might benefit from collaborations with other organizations. As a result of the University’s strong ties to other institutions in Australia and around the world as well as the Australian Government and business and non-profit organizations, educational access has been improved as well as opportunities for engagement and exchange, collaborative research, and innovation.
