What is ANU+?

The ANU+ Award is a program that formally recognises your experience and contribution achieved through volunteering. It encourages you to give back to the community, to develop skills related to your employability prospects and to reflect on your co-curricular experiences to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. In this Program, you will develop the following skills:

  • self-awareness
  • resilience
  • inclusion and awareness of diversity
  • communication skills
  • community and global engagement
  • personal and social responsibility
  • leadership skills and understanding of organisational dynamics

Can I do ANU+ and when can I start?

ANU+ is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students. Students can start at any time in their degree.
