You are a direct applicant for study in 2022 if you:

  • have completed Australian Year 11 studies or the International Baccalaureate program for Year 11 
  • will complete Australian Year 12 studies or an International Baccalaureate Diploma in November 2021.

How to apply

 

Direct applications for study in 2022 are now closed. If you would still like to apply to ANU for undergraduate study in 2022, please follow the process for a non-direct applicant.

If you have applied directly for 2022, your application will cover admission, scholarships and campus accommodation.

  • Early offers made on 9 August 2021 are based on Year 11 results. ANU will honour these for study in 2022 as long as you complete Year 12 and receive an ATAR.
  • If your Year 11 results don't meet entry requirements, we will put you on our waiting list and automatically consider your application again based on your Year 12 results in the December/January offer round.
  • We have adjusted our co-curricular or service requirement requirements due to the disruptions of COVID-19.
