Research is central to everything ANU does. ANU researchers strive to be among the best in their fields.
Our academics are making vital breakthroughs that contribute to Australian and global society. Just one example is ANU Professor Brian Schmidt, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics based on his discovery that the Universe is expanding at an accelerated rate.
This culture of intensive research shapes the learning experience at ANU. Students at all levels of experience engage with active researchers who provide guidance and mentorship. We offer programs and courses in a range of academic areas that give our students the opportunity to learn from and work with academic like Brian.
