Open Day

Come to ANU Open Day if you're thinking about university study for yourself, or you're a parent, family member or friend keen to support a loved one to choose the right degree and uni for them.

ANU is Australia's national university, so even if you're just curious about what goes on here, then Open Day is for you too.

See where you can live and learn at ANU

Hop on an Accommodation Tour and ask about the ANU Accommodation Guarantee while checking out the places you could call home on campus. You'll take in some of Australia's top state-of-the-art learning spaces too. 

Find out what you can study at ANU

Talk to us about your study options, and get first-hand advice from our students taking classes in everything from science and engineering to art curatorship and international relations.

Learn how to design a Flexible Double Degree, and build overseas exchange and internship opportunities into your study program to create career opportunities. We'll walk you through the different pathways to ANU and explain the application process too.

Quiz some of our top teachers and researchers about their work and be inspired by how they're changing the world. You'll discover areas of inquiry and careers you never knew existed. So if you're unsure about what to do at uni, you could have your mind made up by the end of the day.

Get a feel for life at ANU

Whatever your 'thing' is, you'll find it and others who share it within our student-run clubs and societies. Meet people passionate about everything from social justice, Aussie Rules' and black holes to chocolate, Quidditch and gaming.

Plan your day on your phone

The ANU Open Day app will have everything you need to plan your ANU Open Day. Register for updates and we'll let you know when it's ready for download.
