Changes to direct application admissions for 2021

Due to the disruptions caused by COVID-19, we have adapted our admissions process for undergraduate study at ANU in 2021.

We will now make offers based on Year 11 results on 10 August 2020, and these will be honoured for study in 2021 as long as students have completed Year 12. 

Learn more about these changes and how it may affect your application, the co-curriculars and service requirement, or program pre-requisites in our admissions FAQs

These changes do not apply to non-school leavers and/or those who did not study an Australian Year 12 or International Baccalaureate program.    The information on this page is related to study in 2021.


Applications to ANU open earlier than ever before.
