Conference attendance

Attendance at national and international conferences is a common part of research training for ANU research students, providing an opportunity to present research and discuss it with others in the discipline. Undergraduates and graduate coursework students may also attend conferences where opportunities present themselves, though this is less common.

Individual academic areas have their own requirements about how to apply for conference attendance, and who has the authority to approve any available funding. For research students, the Delegated Authority approves your absence. For undergraduates and coursework students, you will need to discuss any absences with your program convenor and individual course convenors.

Research should regularly discuss conference opportunities with their supervisor. The research administrator in your ANU College may also be able to assist.

Conference attandence and presentation is well regarded for research students and will be recorded on their student record.
