21 January 2015

Demand for places to study at the ANU remains strong in 2015, with growing interest in Flexible Double Degrees, after the main round offers by the University Admissions Centre.

ANU has made offers to more than 3,260 new students for 2015 so far, up almost seven per cent on the same time last year.

Demand for Flexible Double Degrees is up nine per cent compared to last year, with 1,287 offers made in the three special programs that allow students to combine their study across a range of courses.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Young AO, said future students still had time to change their preferences. Applicants have until midnight Tuesday 27 January to change preferences.

“The ANU offers a unique university experience for talented young people from around Australia, overseas, and the local Canberra community,” Professor Young said.

“The number of students seeking places at the ANU reflects the University’s strong academic reputation and relaxed student lifestyle.”

ANU offers a Flexible Double Degrees in Law, Engineering or Advanced Computing, and Arts, Social Sciences, Business and Science.

The University made 1,266 offers in the main round, 1,640 offers in the early round and in late 2014 made a further 358 offers to non-school leavers.

Around 840 Canberra school-leavers have been offered places at ANU for 2015.
