Pathway options to ANU

Announcement regarding ANU College

The Australian National University and Study Group Australia have mutually agreed to bring to an end teaching of pathway students at ANU College. This decision has been made in response to commercial and operational viability concerns, mainly as a result of the COVID pandemic and closed Australian borders. We anticipate the full closure of ANU College by December 2022, pending the teach out of students in all programs.

ANU has been in a productive partnership with Study Group Australia since 2013 and many students have successfully completed ANUC programs, progressed to their ANU degree and graduated. We are very proud of the achievements of these students and we are most grateful to the ANUC staff who have received outstanding feedback about the quality of their teaching and the student experience. We acknowledge and thank ANUC staff for their care and dedication to our students.


Current students at ANUC: teach out plan

All students currently (in 2021) enrolled at ANUC are assured that they will be able to complete their studies and, subject to achieving the required results, progress to their chosen program at ANU. Study Group Australia is in direct contact with these students, and, where applicable, their agent, to develop individual plans to support these students. ANU has also formed a working group to ensure teach-out, closure and business continuity are well managed.


Future Students: alternative arrangements

Study Group Australia will be in direct contact with any future students who have accepted offers to commence at ANU College from 2022, and will work with each student to develop an individual plan to support those students in their overall study plan. ANU College will not accept any new enrolments in 2022.

The Australian National University aims to be a study destination of choice for the world's best and brightest. The university has a generous scholarship programme that supports high achieving students from anywhere in the world to study with us. Our focus is on direct student admission to our undergraduate, postgraduate and Higher Degree Research programs.

We encourage you to contact our Future Students International team directly to discuss any questions you may have.
