The Australian National University (ANU) launched its first offshore student study hub in Shanghai, China, in August 2020, to support the University's China-based students as they commenced or continued remote learning during the pandemic. The ANU Study Hub is located in Australia House and hosted in partnership with the Australian Chamber of Commerce Shanghai. A subsequent study hub was set up in Chengdu in April 2021 to provide ongoing support to China-based students studying remotely.
The Hubs have proven to be a highly valuable resource for students in China and the university is delighted to announce that the Hubs have re-opened for Semester 1 2021. The Shanghai Hub has moved to a larger space at Australia House with additional study desks as well as bookable meeting room facilities. The new space opened on 1 February 2021.
The Study Hubs consist of a dedicated, staffed student 'drop-in' study space to facilitate collaborative study and provide quiet learning spaces for students. In addition, the Study Hubs host a regular program of events, workshops and activities, which will be free of charge and open to all current ANU students.
February to June activities
Through the semester from February to June 2021, the Hubs will offer a variety of events and activities for students to engage and build community and connections during Semester 1 2021.
