Documentation requirements

When you apply to ANU, you must be prepared to provide specific documents that we need to assess your application.

Documents you will need to apply to ANU

  • Proof that you have met the University's minimum English language requirements.
  • Your academic records, including a grading scale.
    • If you are applying for an undergraduate program, you will need to provide an academic transcript that shows that you have completed your secondary studies.
    • If you are applying for a postgraduate program, you will need to provide your most recent academic transcript.
    • Any other required documentation for your preferred program. Some ANU programs need you to meet additional requirements, including providing proof of relevant work experience. You can check if your preferred program has additional requirements on Programs and Courses.
  • You can choose to provide official ID when you apply (birth certificate, citizenship documents, passport). Official ID will be required if your application is successful and you are offered a place at ANU.

Documents must not be changed in any way. They must be scanned in colour and must not be re-sized.

Translating your documents into English

When you submit an official document to ANU and the document is written in a language other than English, the document must be accompanied by a complete English translation.

ANU accepts translations from these organisations:

IMPORTANT: Each page of an authorised translation must bear the translator's signature, the date translated and the translator's accreditation details and the official stamp or seal of the translator's accrediting organisation.

Copies translated by any other sources will not be accepted. Self-translated documents are not acceptable.

Verifying your documents

You do not need to provide certified copies of your documents during the application process. ANU will contact the issuing body to request confirmation that your documents are genuine.
