Postgraduate coursework

When you join ANU as a postgraduate student, you join our community of world-leading researchers and academics. You learn from their research as it happens, in state-of-the-art facilities, and as they make breakthroughs which might change the world—and will definitely change yours.

You draw on the expertise of Australia’s leading scientific authorities, research institutions, and policy-makers, all located in Canberra, and all your future mentors or employers.

You join the only Australian member of the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU), a partnership which includes the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge and the University of California, Berkeley. You have opportunities for international research collaborations and for life-changing international connections.

And you graduate with a qualification recognised globally as one of the best in the world. Doors will open for you, in your career or in your further education, as you join our network of respected and successful alumni.
