First round offers go nationwide

The Australian National University (ANU) has made first round offers to nearly 3000 students from around the country today.

Students from New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland, South Australia and the ACT will receive their offer of a place at Australia’s leading university today, while students in Northern Territory, Tasmania and International Baccalaureate students will receive theirs on 11 January 2019.

Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Grady Venville said as the national university, ANU is pleased to have students from all corners of Australia coming to Canberra to study a diverse range of courses from astronomy to philosophy, literature to economics, visual arts to engineering.

“In many cases, students will study double degrees that combine two seemingly unrelated courses, such as music and physics, gaining skills and experiences that will be invaluable in their future endeavours,” Professor Venville said.

Next year’s Orientation Week kicks off on Monday 18 February, with classes beginning on 25 February.

A breakdown of first round offers by state is available below. Northern Territory and Tasmania students’ tertiary entrance scores are still being confirmed, and the offers made today will not impact the opportunity for those students to be offered a place at ANU for 2019.
