Regarded as one of the world’s leading research universities, the Australian National University was founded by the Australian Government in 1946. It educates more than 25,000 students across its seven teaching and research colleges and has several national academies and institutes also located on its Canberra campus.
Stroll through the 145-hectare campus at the foot of Black Mountain, with faculty buildings, modern laboratories and residential halls among the facilities. It’s been voted as one of the greenest campuses in Australia and is home to more than 40 Heritage-listed buildings.
Browse the extensive collections of the Chifley and Menzies libraries and learn about the role of the Australian Academy of Science and the National Film and Sound Archive.
