New bachelors and masters

New bachelor & masters students

Welcome to the Australian National University!

If you have recently accepted your offer to ANU, you should have received a Welcome email with your ANU student ID and your password.

Before you begin your studies at ANU, you will need to complete these essential modules. They’ll help you settle in, respect others and feel safe on campus. Complete the modules on this site: https://orientation.anu.edu.au/essential-modules

Essential Modules 

  • ANU1001 Orientation Module - ANU1001 is a step-by-step guide to help you settle into life and study at ANU. It contains important information about academic colleges, student associations and academic support as well as enrolment and your rights and responsibilities on campus. ANU1001 is your chance to get all the essential information about studying at ANU in one place. 
  • Consent Matters - What is consent? Why is it important? Gain an understanding of the meaning of sexual consent and when it can be given through scenarios that will help you make informed decisions.
  • Academic integrity - Equip yourself to work and write with academic integrity at ANU and avoid misconduct.
  • Being well, living well - This module takes a positive, preventative approach to help students maintain their mental, physical, emotional, and financial wellbeing throughout their university journey. Toolkits in this module will equip students with practical strategies to cope with and prevent wellbeing issues.
  • International Student Success Module - Studying in a different country can be both exciting and confusing. Normal activities like crossing a street, taking public transport and shopping, can be different from home. This online course provides an overview on cultural aspects of living and studying in Australia.

It is quite likely that you will have a few questions about how to enrol, who to speak to, what courses to take and much more. We have put together a short enrolment checklist (pdf, 158 KB)  to help you along your way.

Seeking course advice is strongly recommended for all especially if you are unsure about which courses to select this semester or need very specific academic advice with regards to courses such as Chemistry, Maths or Physics.

We hold Orientation Week events that you can attend for academic advice

Welcome to the Australian National University!

If you have recently accepted your offer to ANU, you should have received a Welcome email with your ANU student ID and your password. You may also have received an email from us here in the Joint Colleges of Science with further details regarding your program convener and contact details.

In brief, the first step to enrolling in your new program is to seek academic advice in order to discuss the courses you will be studying.

If you are unsure who to contact for advice, you can find the academic contact on the Programs and Courses page for your program. Ideally you should have sought advice and enrolled before week 1 of the semester.

If you have been granted credit in your letter of offer, or think you may be eligible for credit, it is important that you discuss this with your program convener when making your course choices. You will need to complete the application for credit transfer and take this with you to your meeting along with all relevant academic transcripts.

You may find you require a permission code to enrol in some courses. If the course is offered by the school running your program, please contact the School Administrator. If the course is offered by a different school, you will need to contact the relevant Course Convener as detailed on the Programs and Courses website.

Once you have enrolled in all courses please check the unit value for each course. If the unit value is incorrect email science.enquiries@anu.edu.au.

Do not forget to complete the remaining steps for enrolment detailed on the Enrol for the first time as a coursework student page. We have also put together a quick enrolment checklist (pdf, 135 KB) that you can work through.

If you have any questions or queries or require any assistance during the enrolment process please do not hesitate to contact at Science Central or your relevant School Administrator.

We look forward to meeting you!
