Remote students


Are you a remote student that has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis? Please refer to the Semester 2, 2021 CRS/CRN for more information. 


We know it's not easy being away from campus so we've created this page of advice and opportunities to connect in with the ANU community when you can't be there in person. This page will continue to evolve as we get feedback from more students studying remotely on what would be useful for us to include here, if you have any thoughts feel free to send us an email.



    Connect with other ANU students

    There are lots of great ways to connect with other ANU students while you're studying remotely with a few suggestions outlined here.

    English conversation groups - Run by peer facilitators through Academic Skills this relxaed group is a great way for students to practice their English language skills. Online Zoom sessions run on 3 different days each week.

    Summer Activities -  if you are looking to stay connected to ANU during the December 2021 and January 2022, take a look at virtual and in-person social activities happening during the break.
