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 before the start of your intended study session at ANU. Your home university may also need time to process your approval; approaching them early is advised.
This type of study may be commonwealth-supported if you have a commonwealth supported place (CSP) at your home institution.
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.
After reviewing the course information and obtaining approval from your university, complete the application form in the resources section of this page. Return a scanned colour copy of this and any supporting documentation, such as academic transcripts, to the ANU Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please take note of the application deadlines on the application form.
Application processing time will vary between academic areas. You should allow at least 4-6 weeks before you receive an outcome.
You may apply for cross-institutional studies one academic year at a time. Returning cross-institutional students will need to complete the application process each time they apply.
