ANU to launch  new admissions model

The Australian National University (ANU) will lead the country in changing the way universities admit students with a new admissions model set to commence in 2020.

Students applying to ANU will have co-curriculum and community contributions recognised as part of their entrance criteria from 2020.

Their scholarship program will be national and take into account outstanding academic results, non-academic achievement and financial need. This means when a student receives an offer to study at ANU they will also know if they have received an offer of accommodation and the outcome of their scholarship application.
