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 shortenrolment checklist (pdf, 158KB) 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.
