Cross-Institutional Applications

If you are currently enrolled in a degree at another Australian university, and you would like to complete an ANU course for credit towards your degree, you can apply to study at ANU as a cross-institutional student.

For example, you might like to complete a course where ANU specialises and have it count towards the completion of your degree at your university.

Step 1
Obtain approval from your university

Before you begin, it is important to discuss your intentions with your home university. You will need to obtain their approval before you can apply for cross-institutional study at ANU. You should allow plenty of time to apply, ideally at least six weeks after you receive approval from your university.

This type of study may be commonwealth-supported if you have a commonwealth-supported place at your home institution.

Step 2
Check Prerequisites

Some courses have prerequisites, including assumed knowledge and completion of introductory subjects. Please check the Programs & Courses website for prerequisite details, or contact the ANU college that delivers the course.

Step 3

After reviewing the course information and obtaining approval from your university, please complete the application form in the resources section of this page, and return to the contact email. Please take note of the application deadlines on the application form.

Application processing time will vary between academic areas. You should allow at least four weeks before you receive an outcome.
