One of Australia's most prestigious universities, Australian National University (ANU) offers a visiting student program that combines academic study with a wealth of social and cultural opportunities over a period of one to two semesters. The University's mix of outstanding resources, excellent support services and distinguished academic staff encourages academic success in a city ideally suited for visiting students integration of research and teaching.
The academic year in Australia begins in February and ends in November, with a break (June/July) between the first and second semesters. You may have to attend an orientation session prior to the start of classes.
Yale does not grant credit for pre-semester courses.
Applying through a study abroad provider still allows you to directly enroll at the university, but with an additional level of services and support. Because of these additional services, it often costs more to study abroad through a provider than to apply directly through the university. We encourage you to research both options before making a decision. If you have any questions, contact a study abroad adviser.
How to Apply
Applying for admission and general Yale credit for designated (non-Yale) study abroad programs is a simultaneous process. It is your responsibility to ensure all application materials are submitted to the Study Abroad Office, and your desired program or university, by the relevant deadlines.
- Submit an application directly to the Study Abroad Office to be eligible to receive general Yale credit for coursework completed abroad, by the appropriate deadline. Late applications for study abroad credit cannot be accepted.
- Apply directly to the program or university you hope to attend for admission. Program application deadlines may be earlier or later than Yale’s application deadline. Access the program application directly from their website.
- You do not need to have already been admitted to your program when you apply for Yale credit.
