Exchange program

Take your studies global by spending one or two semesters on exchange and having it count towards your ANU degree. We have over 170 partner universities in 35 countries, so while going on exchange might be a no-brainer, choosing where to go will be more difficult.

Science Global Learning Program

How does reading manuscripts penned in gold by Abraham Lincoln at Yale or camping under the stars in a Mexican botanic garden sound? Immerse yourself in another culture and gain independence with a global learning program. We offer various study programs that send students abroad for a few weeks. Examples include the Vietnam Field School or the Fiji Field School.

IARU Global Summer Program

As the only Australian member of the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU), ANU offers you the opportunity to study at some of the other most prestigious unis in the world. Learn about sustainability at Oxford, the Challenges of global food production at Yale, or health ageing at the University of Copenhagen.

The alliance is a collaboration between eight world leading universities offering courses to students from partner universities.
