We want every student succeed and reach their full potential. Our community provides many resources and support services to help students make the most of their time at uni.
Below are just a small selection of the services available to students.
ANU Careers can support you to understand yourself in the context of your career choices and options arising from your degree. Alongside our opportunities to engage with employers, this will help you to successfully identify, apply for and win jobs.
ANUSA is a student-run organisation at ANU, with three aims: wins for students, a vibrant campus life and a fair go for all. We run and organise social events, employ 3 Student Assistance Officers, and advocate for students’ interests to the university and governments.
The Academic Skills and Learning Centre works with all ANU students on the development of the academic language and learning strategies necessary to achieve their academic potential. Students can make an appointment for a free, confidential tutorial with a learning adviser. Students can also attend short courses and workshops that run throughout the semester. Our specialist programs cover strategies for academic writing, research and reading; effective tutorial/seminar participation and presentation; examination preparation; and undergraduate mathematical and statistical methods.
The University Counselling Centre provides free, confidential professional services to students dealing with a range of personal and academic difficulties which may adversely affect academic study. We also have a range of group programs and seminars for the year and an extensive online handout via our webpage.
The Disability Services Centre supports students with a disability to participate in their program of study by assessing the need for and approving a range of adjustments that minimise the impact of disability in the university environment.
The University Health Service offers primary health care for students and staff. Appointments are needed for all doctors. Australian students of ANU are currently bulk-billed through Medicare and international students through their Overseas Student Health Cover. The Health Service covers all areas of general practice.
The Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre is a meeting place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students studying at ANU. The centre is the first point of contact and a place where students can meet for study, social and cultural purposes. Tjabal is located in the centre of campus and can assist Indigenous students in all aspects of their studies and university life.
