Schools Enrichment Program

The ANU Schools Enrichment Program gives students in years 10 to 12 an amazing opportunity to experience what it is like to learn at Australia's national university. They will see what studying at ANU is all about by participating in workshops delivered by some of our leading researchers, designed to deepen their knowledge and interest in the field. Workshops cover a range of disciplines across our academic Colleges from Fine Arts to Astrophysics and everything in between.
