International under 18 students

All international students who will be under 18 years of age when commencing studies at ANU must register with Access & Inclusion. This enables the student to access a range of support services, programs, and activities to enhance their experience and help them succeed at University.

Once engaged in their program of study, students must notify the University of any changes to their accommodation and welfare arrangements agreed upon with the University before those changes are put in place.

The listed reference forms must be completed and returned when an international under 18 student:

  • is attending an overnight camp or excursion as part of their studies; and
  • is travelling or staying in accommodation different from their ANU approved accommodation for any period of time
